Global visitor attractions operator Merlin Entertainments has announced plans to install electric vehicle (EV) charging points at five UK attractions this summer.

The result of a partnership with EV supplier RAW Charging, the announcement forms the initial stages of a plan that will see EV charging points rolled out across other Merlin attractions in the future, with charging bays to be installed first at Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures, Warwick Castle and the Legoland Windsor Resort over the summer season.

The project will also form part of Merlin’s pledge to reduce its environmental impact and will contribute to supporting infrastructure for the increasing number of electric vehicles on the roads across the UK.

“Offering EV charging to our guests through our partnership with RAW Charging is exactly what we as an organisation should be doing to help make lower-emission solutions accessible for the public,” said Dare Ilori, sustainability director at Merlin Entertainments.

“Sustainability sits at the heart of Merlin Entertainments and as we continually grow and expand our attractions, we know that reducing carbon emissions is the right thing to do to protect our planet.

“We’re making headway in reducing our annual worldwide carbon emissions and by taking steps like this in installing EV charging hubs across the UK, we are taking action to help pave the way for a greener future and adding to the experience for our guests each year.”
