Imperial College London

Get blown away at Imperial’s wind tunnel tour! Join Imperial researchers to find out how aerial and road vehicles are designed and tested in our state-of-the-art wind tunnel, which is the largest experimental test facility at Imperial and one of the largest University wind tunnels in the UK.

The tunnel is often used for testing the aerodynamic characteristics of all types of road vehicles, including Formula 1 racing cars, and many other types of testing such as studies looking at the effect of wind around buildings in large cities.

Please note: arrive at the Tours Meeting Point 10 minutes before the starting time of your tour to avoid missing out.

This activity is most suitable for children age 12+.


This event is free but booking is available to guarantee a place. Booking will open in late June.
