Riverside park with plenty of space to enjoy a picnic and a walk. Good parking facilities, clean toilets, cafes and a pub/restaurant.

It gets your from A to B quicker. Nothing much more you can say really. It's very helpfully and saves time and fuel and the toll has gone down.

Though no longer a World beater this bridge be still the 'best' Blighty has to offer.

The visitor centre on the north bank be disgusting - the permanent facilities being incomplete - still !
The public toilets be decent enough - no complaints.
The catering facilities be provided from trailers. This was fine on the dry, sunny, warm day we visited, but, on more 'normal' days ?
The information facility be housed inside portakabins. This can quickly become cramped. The range of publications on offer concerning the bridge was pathetic - several less than advertised on the bridge website.
The country park was pleasant enough, but, nothing special.
The only exceptional item of interest was an 'Impudent' carving made from the base of the trunk of an old tree.

Oneself has not visited any of the other great bridges overseas, but, listening to those who have - the facilities on offer here and the opportunities to explore this great structure are underwhelming by all accounts.
Guessing this means there be still a gap to bridge !

You can't really go wrong here! The Humber Bridge may not now be regarded as a world-class piece of design as was the case during its inauguration, but by any human measure it's awesome. Construction is discreet and slender like a finely-crafted work of art, and is - frankly - beautiful. A single span soars across the full width of the Humber. And even at Hessle that's still very wide. Set in sunlight and against a backdrop of blue sky and the distant greenery of Lincolnshire, you really couldn't ask for more. But there is. A small, neat car-park is available on Hessle foreshore that is free to use, and although a toll is charged for crossing with vehicles, those with stout hearts and sound legs are free to walk across. Just remember you have to come back! There's no café as such (which means no litter), but this wonderful piece of engineering is a feast in itself. Go and see.
