Large Hadron Collider roadshow

STFC’s Large Hadron Collider roadshow aka LHC supports the UK particle physics community, in partnership with the Institute of Physics, celebrating the UK’s involvement in the world’s biggest scientific experiment – the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.


The exhibition features a life-sized, walk-through section of the LHC tunnel and accelerator alongside interactive exhibits, informative artwork and digital media highlighting what scientists hope to learn in the next phase of working on the world’s biggest scientific experiment.
