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

I have given this a 4 simply because when you get up close you can appreciate the scale and complex simplicity of it and why it was the world's longest single span bridge when it was built. If you are passing Hull it is definitely worth stopping by either the viewing area and get right underneath it but I would... More

The Humber Bridge is an impressive site and there is talk of a glass elevator being installed in time of the UK Hull city of Culture 2017. Tourism is likely to increase because of this and because of the annual freedom festival which brings visitors to the area. There is a lot of History to Hull and the surrounding area... More

The Humber Bridge is more than just a bridge across a brown river, it's the longest suspension bridge in Britain (approximately one mile), a fabulous feat of modern engineering and the most welcome sight imaginable when you've been away because seeing it means you're nearly home (well, it does to us anyway!) You can use the path to walk or... More
