We walked half way over the bridge and wow it's high. Well worth a trip to look over the side and at the view.
Good,cheap day out entertaining the kids walking along the river Humber or a venture down to 'Little Switzerland!' Lovely having a cold drink at the nearby pub! Somewhere I go to often living local!
It's basically a long bridge with a toll booth at the hull end. It's popular destination with charity events & can be quite therapeutic to walk across. I wouldn't advise driving hear just to see this ... read more »

Very clever, just the right size to fit the width of river. Any shorter would have been a waste of time. Good find.
Great piece of engineering. Bigger than the Golden Gate Bridge, and dare I say prettier too.
Had a fantastic time at the bridge !! Can't beleave it only cost us 1.50 to cross it . Next time we will take the car :) had yarn with a bloke who seemed up set about losing his dog. He Was not there when we came back tho :/. It blows my mind how that thing stays up and dose not fall in to the Atlantic.
Love the Humber bridge but once your on the road to the bridge you're trapped and have to cross! There's nowhere to turn around and we got stuck in a stupid TAG lane whatever the hell that is. We made a wrong turn and had to cross the bridge twice just to get to the county park. Not impressed.
Run down. The visitors centre is a portable cabin with very little in there (the old centre is closed and stands derelict) Not what we were expecting to be honest. Disappointing. The bridge itself however is a marvel!
