Kingston upon Hull ferry port to Colchester
Humber Bridge. RP 2
This route leaves from the ferry port and crosses the magnificent Humber Bridge, it was the longest single span suspension bridge in the world when it open in 1981and is free to use for motorcycles. This route uses a mixture of roads but avoids busy major roads where possible. The route passes through the Lincolnshire Wolds A.O.N.B. (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) on its way to the Norfolk coast. You will notice the distinctive architecture of Norfolk with its use of flint as a building material and this can be seen very well when you pass through the tight, narrow streets of Cley next-the-Sea at route point 11 amongst other places along the route. Look out for windmills too, this area is famous for them. The route carries on along the coast to Cromer. I suggest stopping for lunch here. You have a good choice, fish and chips is nice, but Cromer is famous for its crabs so why not have a crab sandwich and a coffee while you look at the sea and Cromer Pier.
The route heads south now on more country roads and passing pretty villages. The route will take you through Ipswich and onto your hotel for the night at Colchester. The hotel is smart but not expensive and is situated in the Dutch Quarter of Colchester. The area was the 16th century home of Flemish Protestant refugees fleeing religious persecution after they had been defeated in a rebellion against Catholic Spain.
There are many timber framed houses in the Dutch Quarter, some of which were built by Dutch settlers. You will also find a good selection of restaurants to choose from and Colchester Castle just a short walk away.
