I have a Canon 7DMK II and sometimes it takes time for photos to write with a 120 mb/s card (this is shooting raw, insects and birds lots of photos).
Would (and I guess yes) a 160mb/s card make a big difference?
Any good places to buy one in the UK?

you are not going to see noticeable difference between 120MB/s and 160MB/s card. Limitation is on the camera's CF interface.

Do you shoot RAW, jpeg or both?

Raw on its own to save space and time and for flexibility
