I live in the little town Barton next to the bridge south side and can easily gain access onto the bridge's footpath - I have used the bridge as a nice place to work for a long time now and find it especially enjoyable during the summer. Starting on the Barton side it is lovely to walk across and visit... More

Drive over the bridge nearly every day and still think how spectacular it is with great view over the Humber well worth a visit but beware early morning queues

This is a really significant landmark for the people of Hull. Seeing it after 8 years of living overseas still gave me that same feeling.

I first visited Hull in the late 80s so don't know a time when the Humber Bridge was not there. It is always exciting going over the bridge and across the Humber - it is such a wonderful structure and you don't realise how wide the Humber is until you cross the bridge. It is a magnificent bridge which in... More

This is civil engineering at its absolute finest and is an object of great beauty! The box girder construction renders the bridge unbelievably slender and elegant. It was the longest single-span bridge in the world when it opened in 1981 and it held that record for 17 years. From shore to shore, the bridge is 1.37 miles (2,200m) and the... More

By car, arrive from the south through North Lincolnshire. As the road sweeps round on the final approach, you get a great vista of what was once the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world. It's still a fantastic sight crossing the Humber Estuary. Park up in the lovely little town of Barton-on-Humber, have a cup of tea, then walk... More

Well worth a walk over the Humber at any state of the tide. £1.50 to drive across in vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes (possibly greater) and free for pedestrians. Plenty of car parks and view points on the Hull side of the river, paths and a board detailing the adventures of a 6ft 9inch man who made his way across... More
