We are lucky enough to live a short walk from this beautiful and iconic landmark. We had promised our 6 year old granddaughter that we would walk across it on a fine day.

So, on a bright sunny February Sunday we had a lovely walk across the bridge and back. We were lucky that there was no wind at all (usually it blows a gale) and it was pleasantly warm for the time of year even though there was a heavy mist across the river when we set off. However the mist lifted and we had a great walk with good views. There were a lot of other people with the same idea though so we did a lot of dodging about to avoid walkers, cyclists and joggers.

We worked up a good appetite for lunch and our 6 year old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you arrive by car, be aware that parking is limited at present as there is a Covid testing facility in the main car park area. There is a small car park at the top of the country park. There is also limited parking on the foreshore due to building work for the flood defences.

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

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.

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?

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.

Amazing drive over this 2.22 km long suspension bridge. The toll of £1.50 for a car per crossing is paid by contactless card payment. If you are in the tag lane without a tag, you have to pay online within 72 hours. Discounts for Humber tag account holders.

Yes, yes, it's a bridge, it gets you across a river without getting your feet (or tyres) wet etc etc. Past all of that it's a great feat of engineering and impressive to look at when you take the time to look properly, which you can't do whilst driving over it !

If you have the time, park on the south side, you can park on "Far Ings Road" (use your sat nav) for free, walk up the steps to the walkway on either side of the bridge and then cross by foot. We did it in Feb 2020 during the tail end of some pretty hefty winds - all right from south to north with the wind behind us, but it became a bit of a mission on the return crossing.

When you stand on the bridge deck and look up at the towers, you get to see just how impressive the bridge is - well worth taking a little time out to do it.

Strangely quiet on the day we crossed, only met one other family and two pretty keen cyclists, but it was pretty cold and VERY windy !

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.

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.

I accidentally drove through the tag lane. I paid as soon as the dept was available on the humbertag website which was the following day. Then I get a fine through the post to say I didn't pay! They must have blocked my payment, that's all I can think. Be careful to go through the correct lane. These vultures will get you
