Hinkley Point Visitor Centre

The business links between Cannington Court and the Hinkley Point C project meant that we were an obvious location choice for the Hinkley Point Visitor Centre: nearer to the population centres and major communications links yet close enough to the construction site to run tours. Public tours will be restarting on a limited basis from January 2022. Please use the contact details below to enquire about availability.

The Visitor Centre Experience

The new all interactive Hinkley Point Visitors Centre has now opened its doors at Cannington Court. The centre highlights the importance of the energy mix and how Nuclear power plays an important part. The centre has many interactive displays and visitors are encouraged to explore how electricity is created in a fun and interactive way.

People of all ages can learn why there is an overwhelming need to produce low carbon energy and how EDF is helping Britain achieve net zero through the construction of Hinkley Point C and the use of other renewable sources such as wind and solar power.

Once you have finished your visit why not pop along to our brassage facility for some light refreshments. Payment is contactless – no cash please.
