Your Filey Stories and Reviews

Filey is a very pretty small town. It is a traditional seaside town, with a much quieter and more relaxed feel than either Scarborough, Bridlington or Whitby.

Filey does have all the traditional seaside attractions for this style of Victorian England holidays, including, in particular, massive, flat, sandy beaches.

For us, these are a huge attraction to this lovely little town.

Our Filey Story

We don't get to Filey as often as I would like.

And we usually seem to end up coming here in the depths of Winter!

When it is still very pleasant - if not a little chilly!

We love Filey especially for the beaches - which are big and very secure for the dog to run on.

Filey seems to be a town which is a real favourite with local visitors - a little hidden gem...

...beautiful and with that traditional seaside experience, but without all the hustle and bustle of the larger towns - a much more relaxing experience!

Filey doesn’t get quite as busy as the ‘big’ seaside resorts – and I think that is why I like it so much!

It is small, so it is very easy to walk from one end of the seafront to the other, and back through the town, without getting too tired.

Filey Tourist Information – The Sea Front

The walk along the promenade is very pleasant.

It is a raised sea wall, and you look down onto the beach (or sea) below, and listen to the sea gulls calling overhead…

Along the sea front are very pleasant gardens, and attractions for all the family, such as the paddling pool, and a crazy golf game.

There are only intermittent snack bars along here, so it really does feel non-commercial - although you are still well catered for, even in the winter.

We usually stop at one of the snack bars at the Coble Landing, (The Tea Bar) at the north end of the sea front.

Filey Town Centre

The town centre of Filey itself is just a short 5 minute walk from the sea front – although it is up quite a steep hill!

The town itself is quite quaint and pretty with attractive buildings and plenty of welcoming bars, restaurants and cafes.

You will also find lots of little gift shops and arts and crafts shops, with some quite unusual wares.

Filey Parks and Countryside

Either side of the town are green open spaces.

To the south is a park area near to the Filey Golf Club - with refreshments and fun attractions for the kids:

  • crazy golf
  • mini go-karts
  • playground
  • boating lake

To the north is a fantastic Country Park right on top of the famous Filey Brigg - a rocky outcrop in the sea.
