Electric vehicle charging points

BMW i at Hughenden, Buckinghamshire

Do you want to explore the countryside in your electric car? This handy guide will tell you where you can charge your car at the places we care for.

It's always a good idea to check with the place you're planning to visit that the charging points are in operation. Some charging points may be occupied on arrival, so please plan ahead for your visit. 

If we don’t have a charge point at the location you'd like to visit take a look at Zap Map's website for charging points nearby (link below).

Our work with BMW i

As Europe’s largest conservation charity, we can play a key role in protecting the environment.  We're aiming to meet 50% of our energy needs with from renewable sources by 2021. Not only are we working hard to make the places we care for sustainable, we're also able to expand our network of charging points thanks to the support we get from BMW i.

Like us, BMW i is inspired by nature, and is championing innovation with their range of electric cars to make travel more sustainable. Their support means there will be even more places for drivers to plug in their vehicles. This means you can come and see the work we're doing to become more sustainable while also doing your bit to protect the environment.

We’ll be updating this page with details of new charging points.
