Liverpool to host ‘first permanent’ city zip line

Liverpool could be host to the ‘first permanent’ city zip line in the UK, the city council has announced.

The council has been in discussions with Zip World about running a zip line from St John's Beacon – the highest point in the city – to Liverpool Central Library.

Deputy mayor and cabinet member for leisure and culture, Cllr Wendy Simon, assures residents that the wire will not interfere with the day-to-day running of the library.

She also said it would attract more tourists to the city.

‘Central Library is already a tourist attraction in its own right, and this will help further boost visitor numbers as well as providing a valuable income stream at a time when we have significant budget challenges, and are increasingly looking to generate revenue to protect much-loved services such as libraries,’ she commented.

The firm, which runs three zip lines in Snowdonia National Park, said it hoped to open the attraction in 2021.
