Things to do at Humber Bridge Country Park review
The Humber Bridge Country Park is a 48-acre park next to the Humber Bridge in East Yorkshire. It is located on the north side of this famous bridge close to the Hessle foreshore.
The park is set in woodland with open meadows and wildlife ponds. There are chalk cliffs that surround the park on three sides. The park is known locally as Little Switzerland as the bright white cliffs are said to resemble miniature snow-covered Alps. There are a few different trails around the park some with sculptures and feeding stations for birds. The park and its car parks are free.
In 2002 the park was designated a Local Nature Reserve in recognition of its wildlife. There are 22 species of butterflies recorded at the park. The site used to be quarried which has then led to there being three ponds. If it’s warm enough kids will enjoy paddling on the Hessle foreshore. This is where you will also find a small playground close to one of two lots of toilets.
The country park is on the National cycle network although with many steps down and through the park it is not suitable for bikes. There are cycle racks at the Humber Bridge car park (currently being used as a covid testing site so parking is limited and the toilets here are currently closed). The park can get quite muddy so take wellies if it’s rained recently.
Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
