Did you know that the Humber Bridge always reminds me of home?
What about you?
Whether I’m on the train or driving to Hull, I know I’ve arrived when I see the gigantic Humber Bridge in the distance, straddling over the River Humber Estuary connecting East Yorkshire to North Lincolnshire.

So, before I even talk about The city of Kingston Upon Hull, it’s time to venture out and discover what the Humber Bridge is all about. Why is it so famous? How long can you walk across it? Where’s the best place to sightsee?
Well, I just had to make a vlog:
The place to sight see the Humber Bridge is definitely on the Hessle Foreshore offering great views. It’s hidden away through the winding roads of Hessle but only a few seems to know where it is.
If you fancy walking across it, head on over to the Humber Bridge Country Park where you will find free parking, ice creams and even the Monthly Farmer’s Market that takes place every first weekend of the month. From there, you can walk across the River Humber Bridge, in about 45 minutes each way. Why not stop off at Barton Upon Humber on the other side for much needed tea (Yorkshire Tea, that is) and perhaps a scone or two.
It’s a great place to spend a day out of Hull and I urge you to do this as you’ll definitely go beyond the city of Kingston Upon Hull.
