The small town of Filey is bustling with colourful souvenir shops and fish and chip cafés, yet the real gem here is the sweeping sandy beach. Roll up your trousers, grab your fishing net and head for the deep rock pools, or take a walk along the promenade with its intriguing coastal-themed sculptures. Whatever floats your boat, this unassuming town has seaside charm in spades.
You could easily spend a long weekend in Filey, appreciating the wildlife and unspoiled natural beauty. Visit the Bird Garden and Animal Park to discover a mix of exotic animals, birds and wildlife. Filey Brigg also has some fascinating geology and marine life, and is surrounded by hundreds of wrecks which remain a source of intrigue to professional divers.
If you can bear to leave the beach, there's a lot going on in Filey and the surrounding area.
If there is a visit you make this year with your children, make it to Playdale Farm Park. It is a must for everyone, come rain or shine, you and your children will have a great time!
