In my garage I have a 32 amp circuit already wired to the consumer unit and there is a socket on the wall (I don't know the technical name for it, but it's a fat round one).
I'm getting a Renault Zoe next week. Is there a cable I can get that connects directly to this socket and the Zoe on the other end?
Or do I still need to buy a charging point?

You not watching the football? :D
Sounds like you have a 32A commando socket. Yes you can charge the car from that, just buy the suitable cable.
Whether you should or not is open to debate - there is probably some technical details on the electrical regulations around earthing that might suggest you get a “proper charger". But whatever: your idea makes perfect sense.
Enjoy the Zoe - it's a great EV
