  • Id definitly agree with all of the reviews to walk the bridge is great but I just wanted to mention there are lots of things to do when walking at both sides of the bridge too. On the Hull side there ...  more »
  • The bridge itself is a superb piece of engineering, and the views from it are just amazing Its best to visit on sunny days, but we all know how the weather is changing from one minute to another as it...  more »
  • I walked the Humber bridge! How many people from Birmingham can say they've done that? Beware it's long, about 1.5 miles each way. But who said anything worth doing is easy?! Great views!

  • Hull is a very nice place to visit especially when you just come across it as a bridge but there's more to it.
  • Nice experience going over the bridge because my grandad helped build it. In the 80s it was the largest suspension bridge of its kind the only bad thng about the humber is the dirty water. Its still good though.
  • The bridge itself is a superb piece of engineering, and the views from it amazing. Unfortunately, however, the administrative staff behind the operation are appalling. Think Russian civil service (and customer service) as it was under the old-style Communism back in the 1970s and you won't be far out. Hidebound by petty rules and regulations apparently aimed at making life as difficult as possible for customers, unbending whatever the circumstances, unhelpful, unresponsive to complaints - all the worst attributes of an organisation that has a monopoly and no competitors to worry about. HumberTAG has been a very long time coming - it took them a ridiculously long time to drag themselves into the 21st century - but now that it's here the systems behind it seem to have been designed by someone on work experience. Maybe they were.
  • My wife studied at Hull university and had often raved about this bridge. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical but finally we went across it en-route to a Yorkshire holiday and it lived up to her description.. Really impressive!
  • Great views , fantastically built .easiest way to cross the humber.
