About
The bridge once held the world record as the longest single span suspension bridge for cars but it remains the longest in the world over which to walk or cycle. More than 100,000 vehicles use the bridge each week, travelling between East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, with the majority using the HumberTAG electronic tolling system.

    Definitely worth a look
    We parked at the viewing point and sat on a bench to take in the beautiful view of this bridge that crosses the Humber. Built in the 1980's it is possible to walk across it and the toll for cars is £1.50. It was interesting seeing it fairly close up and the fact that the traffic seemed so quiet. The parking is free and there toilets and a cafe too.

    One of my favourite bridges
    Tom and I drove across the bridge twice, paying a hefty £3 return, but you only live once. This is definitely one of my favourite bridges. I'd say the Clifton Suspension Bridge tops it, but it is a close call. The views are just breathtaking. I think we will make the 3 hour round trip again to cross this bridge again.

    Humber Bridge of Sighs
    My dearly departed dad, when visiting San Francisco and upon laying his eyes upon the legendary Golden Gate Bridge was heard to say, 'Well, it's no Humber Bridge is it.' He spoke sense did my old man. Talked utter rubbish more often, but now and again a pearler came tumbling out of his mouth. The Humber Bridge is a marvelous piece of bridge building. It still stands the test of time 43 years after it was erected and stopped people having to drive the long way round to get to the other side. And that took you through Goole. Never a good idea. Once the longest single span suspension bridge in the world, it doesn't even make the top ten any longer. The longest is now almost 50% longer than the Humber Bridge. It is, however, a stunning bridge and a genuine piece of recent history that deserves to be seen and used. It really is far better than the Golden Gate Bridge as well. FAR better

    Windy weather!
    Visiting Hessle to pick something up, we decided to call to the country park. Disappointing thst it was too windy to walk across the bridge, but we know we need a return visit in summer. The country park is well worth a visit too, but preferably when the footpaths aren't under water

well, nice looking, jumpers hot spot, well overpriced way from nowhere to the deepest "Hole" in England. Every time I cross it I am thinking what was the business of doing it here, owners could not repay the loan so city took it under its wings. Golden gate has at leats its own colour, well placed between some hills.

We’ve used the crossing on several holidays prior to Covid-19 and the crossing was quite straightforward however since the removal of cash payments, you only have a choice of setting up a TAG account which you prepay for your crossings monthly or by Visa card payments.
Paying by Visa certainly slows down your travel & before too long a queue has built up. We’ve had a wait of approx 10 minutes during June & July which isn’t too bad but I would want to cross on a busy time.
I wonder why we can’t pay in advance like you can with the Dartford crossing - wouldn’t that speed up the travel and reduce waiting times?

We used the Humber Bridge to get to the P&O Ferry Port. Not living locally, we were following the sat nav telling us to keep right for our exit.
Only one lane was actually in use this particular evening due to high winds. As we followed the flow of traffic we realised we weren't passing through a booth but through a tag lane. We had no idea what this was and hadn't noticed any clear signage as to which lanes to get into.
I immediately went online and read in full the terms of paying the fee if missed. As we had just gone over the bridge our car wasn't yet on the site and could take up to 24hrs at which point we were in Europe with no WiFi. Not a problem I assumed as it said I had 72 hours to pay the toll, which I did the minute we arrived back in the UK.
Unfortunately their system twice said there was an error making payment, however both payments did come out of my bank. I then received a letter saying I hadn't paid, with now a £15 admin fee also applied.
I disputed this, and eventually got a reply saying they would withdraw the admin fee but to still pay the £1.50 (this is after I'd also provided evidence that I'd paid twice within their timeframe).
Now most people would say just pay the £1.50 and be done with it, but this is now about principle, I'd already paid - twice!!
I've now received a letter asking for payment with even more admin fees added. I will continue to dispute this, as although I admitted to being in the wrong lane and not initially paying, I did then pay within the 72hrs.

I also think the 45 day response time to emails is shocking, just goes to show how many disputes they must be dealing with.
£1.50 toll is a cheap charge compared to the M6 toll road which is extortionate, but they're clearly making their money via these admin charges.

If you have to cross the Humber bridge, just make sure you're in the correct lane to avoid this hassle.

What an astounding feat of engineering the Humber Bridge is. The central span is approximately 1410 metres long. The sight of the tall towers holding up the bridge is awe inspiring.

We walked across the bridge, which at this time of the year is rather exhilarating facing strong winds and low temperatures. Rather disappointingly we had to walk back along the same side as the pathway on the opposite side of the bridge was closed. This meant that we missed out on the views towards Hull City.

The car park was almost full when we arrived so it pays to get there early.

If you are up for an adventurous walk then look no further than the Humber Bridge.

The Humber Bridge really is very impressive and after driving across, towards Hull, we parked up and walked back over the bridge and then back again. We walked both ways on the northern side as the southern walkway was closed. We had great views up the estuary and really enjoyed the experience.

We had to park a little bit away as the normal car park was closed. The total distance of our walk to the other side and back was 3.8 miles

Experience not to be missed! We came across at dusk from the East Yorkshire coast to meet the M180. Simply exhilarating. The vast expanse of water gives an in sight into how small man really is. Whilst we have built an engineers dream it serves only to reflect the world as an ingenious creation. I intend to walk the span in the near future. Many were doing just that as we crossed. Cycles are also permitted to take the designated route from one side to the other. Very highly recommended visit for all ages.

This is a long bridge that goes over the river Humber and it saves you a lot of time but you do need to pay £ 1.50 but it is worth it. The bridge and the river look stunning and it is worth to see. I would go on it any way even if you don't want to see but just to get into hull from Lincolnshire or hull to Lincolnshire.

Good views from the drive or walk across and there is plenty of parking at the end if you want to spend mre time there taking in the sights. For me tolls on roads and bridges are madness, we pay enough in taxes thatthey shoud be free; and motorists have been paying for years to use this bridge so even if tax does no go direct to road provision "we" must have paid many tmes over for the building of this beautiful crossing. Be sure to get in the left lane if you don't have a tag or you will have to hope some kind driver will let you in as you near the payment booths.
