I work with a chap who drives Hull - Great Yarmouth and back once a month, and claims to do Humber Bridge - GY legally in 2 hours 50 minutes.  I'll find out his exact route for you later on.

Thanks Barnickal Bill I would appreciate that 2hs 50mins sound quick usually takes us 3.5hrs and that using the back roads to avoid traffic!

It takes us 3.5 hours from Sheffield (sometimes more), no matter which route we use. Door to door that's 192 miles. If your comming from West Yorkshire, I can't see it being done much faster unless you live at the side of the A1.

Hi,

3.5 hours seems about right to me too.  These days it doesn't seem like there are any good times to avoid traffic, with exception of driving through the night.  

We often towed a boat to the Broads from Yorkshire, so I much favoured driving at night as I found it less stress without all the cars.  Having said that though, I was completely stuck at the other end in the dark. Smile  Every year I told myself that I'd get a couple of hours Kip once I got there, but once I'm within viewing distance of the water I'm like a kid on christmas morning - needless to say I never did catch any sleep Smile
