The Large Hadron Collider will allow electroweak studies to be performed in as yet unexplored kinematic regions. The collider constraints on the Standard Model parameters (W boson mass, top quark mass and hence the uncertainty on the Higgs boson mass) are presented. Single top quark production, which provides a direct measurement of the CKM matrix element Vtb, is described. Studies of triple gauge boson couplings are also presented.
