Visit biomass, pumped storage and hydro power stations

The world needs electricity. But how many of us really know how it’s generated? Come visit Drax Power Station in Yorkshire or Cruachan Power Station in the Scottish Highlands and see with your own eyes!

Electricity is at the heart of everything we do. It powers our homes, our businesses, our schools and our hospitals. We use it every day, but how often do we stop and think how it’s produced? Believe us, it’s an amazing process.

It’s not just the power station that’s open to visitors. You’ll also be able to explore the Skylark Centre and Nature Reserve, to see local wildlife on a stunning reserve built and maintained by Drax. Visits to our other businesses across Drax Group, including our hydropower stations, are also available upon request.


Tours and visits to Drax and Cruachan power stations, as well as the Skylark Centre and Nature Reserve are suspended. This is to reduce the risk of people spreading the Coronavirus and the closure will be reviewed on a weekly basis. We know this will inconvenience people but as a working power generator, the safety and wellbeing of our employees, contractors and visitors is our first priority.
