Top five zipline sites in the UK - including the world's fastest

Here is a list of our favourite zip lining locations; 

You are in luck. Britain has some superb zip line locations along with other adrenaline-fueled adventures. 
1. Zip World, Penrhyn, Wales, UK; Velocity 2 is the fastest zip line in the world. You fly at around 100 mph over a huge quarry; only skydiving is more thrilling. The Penrhyn site sits on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. Therefore, our Tour Designers can arrange a ziplining morning or afternoon and then combine a journey on the Snowdonia Mountain Railway, taking you to the peak of Snowdon.
Where to stay
We have a database of inspected cottages and luxury guest houses to stay in North Wales. Our recommended hotels in the region are Pale Hall Hotel and Restaurant, a refined luxury property with a high-end restaurant. The restoration of the Victorian mansion is of an extremely high standard. It shows in the details of doors, windows and furniture. Pale Hall is one hour 20 minutes to the Zip World site. 
Near the coastal resort of Llandudno is the National Trust owned Bodysgallen Hall Hotel. The offer here is traditional style accommodation with a spa. The gardens are historical and are a special feature of the property. Bodysgallen is only 30 minutes to the Penrhyn Zip World Site. 
2. Zip World, Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Wales, UK; Titan at Zip World is a little slower, but it is not less fun. There are four zip wires in a row with three zip wire sections to complete, so that families can race to the bottom of the mountain. It is so much fun, and you will not stop laughing. Another excellent facility run by Zip World. 
Where to stay
The Llechwedd site is a little closer to Pale Hall and 50 minutes from Bodysgallen Hall (as above). Please note that we recommend staying in a historic cottage or holiday property with authentic architecture in a special location for longer stays in the region. This idea can make you feel part of the country's culture and give you an insight into life in Wales.
3. Hangloose zip line, The Eden Project, Cornwall, England, UK; Until next year this will be England’s longest zip wire. You zoom over the incredible biomes of the Eden project and travel half a mile. By the way, Hangloose at Bluewater (near London) shopping mall will be longer when it opens next year. 
Where to stay
Cornwall has it all from Relais and Chateaux Hotels, boutique harbourside properties, high-end guest houses, and luxury beach houses. We recommend the idyllically situated Hotel Tresanton and the "Relais" property of The Idle Rocks Hotel.
However, the widely acclaimed British chef Rick Stein owns several establishments in the fishing village of Padstow, namely The Seafood Restaurant with rooms. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us for further accommodation options.
4. Zip Trek Park, Aviemore, Scotland, UK; How about an entire course of 14 zip lines, slowly getting faster and longer all in a Highland setting. The visitors with a braver heart can tackle the Zip Adventure with 17 zip wires zig-zagging over the Alvie Gorge. You will fly over trees and waterfalls and swoop down into gorges.
Where to stay
If you know anything about Queen Victoria, it is the fact that she loved the Highlands of Scotland. Her Majesty adored the location of Inverlochy Castle Hotel; despite being a castle, Inverlochy is of the petite variety, making it friendlier and more personalised. The Aviemore Zip is a one hour 30 minutes drive through spectacular scenery.
The Fife Arms in Braemar is a highlands gem, and yes, it has stuff animals and tartan, but it is lavish, cosy and welcoming. Meet a traditional Gillie (or Ghillie is an estate facilitator of things to do) and arrange highlands sports such as fishing, shooting and deer stalking.
An hour away from the Aviemore Zip Line site is the Victorian town of Pitlochry. We recommend staying at Fonab Castle Hotel, centrally located for the Whisky Trail and exploring all the historical places in the Highlands.
5. Go Ape!, 34 Sites Across the UK; Go Ape adventure parks offer various adrenaline activities including zip trekking. The centres are usually in picturesque locations and accommodate all ages and all fear factor levels.
Where to stay
The Go Ape company has many sites and options. To make sense, we plan your itinerary, including activities at Go Ape sites, and recommend the accommodation to fit the plan.
