EV Charging on the Welsh Three Peaks

We'll regularly update this page, but due to the fast changing nature of EV charging in the UK please bear in mind that facilities may vary.

The total driving route of the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge is 125 miles, so charging won't usually be required during the challenge itself.

Bear in mind that availability of rapid chargers is limited especially in rural Wales. We've set out some helpful destinations at either end of the route for charging before and after, and some during just in case.

Before Snowdon

There are no public chargers in Llanberis - slow charging may be available from accommodation by agreement. The closest rapid charger is Euro Garages in Bangor, or Morrisons in Caernarfon.

Along the route

There are two rapid chargers on the route!

Soon after Cadair Idris, on route is a BP Pulse rapid charger - at Tre'r-ddol, south of Machynlleth on the A487.

Further south just before arriving in the Brecon Beacons National Park, on the way through Llandovery - this is just 25 miles from Pen y Fan.

After Pen y Fan

If you're continuing travel south, rapid chargers become easily available towards the M4. The closest quick chargers are at the King Brychan Pub in Merthyr Tydfil 20 miles south, or Morrisons in Ebbw Vale.
