Practical Info and Map
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...
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…
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:
To the north is a fantastic Country Park right on top of the famous Filey Brigg - a rocky outcrop in the sea.
