The Humber Bridge, Kingston-upon-Hull

Officially opened by H.M. the Queen in 1981, the The Humber Bridge is a 2,220 m (7,280 ft) single-span suspension bridge and the seventh longest of its type in the world. The structure can be seen for miles around and provides impressive views of both sides of the river. Take in the view with a breezy walk or jog and share a picnic lunch in the nearby wooded area when you’ve earned a rest. For additional information, head into the Visitor Centre to learn more about the Bridge’s history. Note, parking on the north (Yorkshire) side is free and there is a snackbar should you need it.
