We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Visit CERN

Seeing is believing! There is nothing like seeing physics in action to excite and inspire.

At CERN, you will hear, first hand, about what’s going on at the forefront of physics, and you will see the scale of the engineering and technology required to help us answer some of the big questions:

  • What are the basic building blocks of matter?
  • How did the Universe begin?

More than 90,000 people visit CERN every year (including more than 400 UK schools) and the overwhelming response is enthusiastic. To quote one teacher: “My students talked about it for weeks!”

The majority of UK visitors are schools and teachers but visits for individuals and other groups are also very welcome.
