The Humber Bridge, one of the world's longest single span suspension bridges is a masterpiece of British engineering and a major attraction in its own right.

Before the arrival of the railways, water transportation was the most efficient means of moving heavy or bulk freight and the Humber, situated at the heart of the waterway system associated with the Trent and the Ouse, was one of the chief highways of England. To cater for local and, as time progressed, wider needs ferries were provided across many of the creeks along both banks of the river and in 1315 a ferry between Hull and Lincolnshire was established. By 1800 the ferry had become fully integrated into the overland transport system. The ferry service between Hull and New Holland ended with the opening of the Humber Bridge on 24th June 1981.
