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.

  • We parked in the country park at the north end of the bridge, climbed up to it, and then walked a considerable distance across and then back. It was an exciting experience and, because it was a lovely...  more »
  • Worth a detour ? Probably. We had a nice day so the view was good. Car park area nearby was shabby and all facilities closed ( on a Sunday). Cheap to drive over at £1.50 for a car but after 40 years h...  more »
  • Interesting place to visit for a few hours for a good view of the Humber river. There is a visitors centre where souvenirs can be purchased.  more »

  • This is a much better alternative than the old boat. The bridge only closes during poor weather conditions, and makes it much easier for people on both sides of the Humber to commute to work, do business, and enjoy day trips. While the prices were once on a escalator, today travel in a car is at a fixed £1.50 and is a worthwhile expense. It's also suitable for cyclists and walkers. For anyone on the North side, there is plenty of nature to see by heading South and exploring Barton's ponds and rivers edge.
  • Brilliant tourist attraction. And great to walk across if your up for it and don't mind heights. You can feel the bridge moving as traffic crosses it. It takes about an hour from the car park to the viewing area on the other side. As it's quite exposed I'd advise taking a water and windproof coat.
  • Go near there a lot. Lovely area. Scenic and ckean
  • Great place to visit good place to park the car and get out to walk along the Humber bank not forgetting the magical Humber bridge
  • Beats driving all the way around. Should be more of a tourist landmark. I love running but running back and forth over this bridge is my nemesis.
