The world’s longest single-span suspension bridge when it opened in 1981, the Humber Bridge is an impressive sight that includes its own country park.
With a huge span of 1,410 metres (1,542 yards), the Humber Bridge makes for an iconic gateway to northeast England’s buzzing maritime city. And with Hull being just a 2 hour 30 minute journey from London by train, you can find yourself there in no time.
Walk or cycle across the pedestrian walkway and high above the broad estuary of the River Humber, taking in views of Hull’s cobbled Old Town and revitalised waterfront.
In the shadow of the Humber Bridge, the country park is a great place to take a stroll. Originally a chalk quarry, it’s been transformed into a wildlife haven with trails, lakes and meadows, and there’s even an original mill in place.
Whether you are starting an epic journey along the Yorkshire Wolds Way or a gentle stroll along the Humber, the bridge is a great place to start exploring the North of England.
