Tunnel Engineering exhibition

May - November 2017
 

Tunnelling through time

ICE invites you to visit the hidden world of underground engineering.

From the worms that inspired famous engineer Brunel to the mechanical giants burrowing under our modern cities, the art of tunnelling has come a long way.

This latest free ICE exhibition takes you on a historical journey that shows you some of the longest, deepest and most advanced tunnels in the world.

The exhibition runs for six months at ICE’s Infrastructure Learning Hub at One Great George Street in central London.
