Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK 3 pin plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply.

Voltage - The mains voltage in Switzerland is 230 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

Frequency - The frequency in Switzerland is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.

Special considerations - C only in the form CEE 7/16. In some very old installations, type E sockets or sockets that are compatible with type J and type E plugs are found.
