Travel Guide to holidays in... Filey, Yorkshire, England



Situated on the coast between Scarborough and Bridlington, this charming Yorkshire seaside resort began life as a small fishing village. With its five miles of sandy beaches and beautiful views, it is not difficult to see why it became popular with tourists in Victorian times, and continues to be so today. The beach is bordered by a long historic promenade, with a Sculpture Trail and chalets for hire. About a mile to the north of the bay, Filey Brigg is a long, narrow peninsula with steep cliffs which are 15 metres high. Filey Brigg’s geology and marine life is impressive, and it is surrounded by hundreds of shipwrecks which continue to enthral professional divers. The Cleveland Way, a 110-mile walking route and the second National Trail to be opened, runs from Filey Brigg to Hemsley in North Yorkshire.

The town itself is home to many vibrant souvenir shops and traditional fish-and-chip cafes. The 12th-century parish church of St Oswald’s is the oldest building in Filey. Every year Filey hosts an Edwardian Festival, featuring afternoon teas, brass bands and Punch and Judy shows.

Attractions within the local area include: Filey Bird and Animal Park; Filey Dams Nature Reserve for wildlife enthusiasts; Glen Gardens; and Filey Museum, which showcases local history. Further afield the North York Moors, Hunmanby, Scarborough and Whitby all offer opportunities for exploration and leisure. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

Sometimes given the nickname of “God’s Own County” thanks to its lush green countryside and wild expanses of moor land, Yorkshire is the largest county in England. It is home to over 800 attractions, from breweries to museums, castles to zoos, and World Heritage Sites to breathtaking rides. There are many popular seaside resorts along its coastline, including Whitby, Bridlington and Scarborough, as well as quieter villages and working harbours nestled among the rugged cliffs. The North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales and part of the Peak District National Park offer wonderful opportunities for walkers, cyclists and climbers, as well as nature reserves for bird spotters and naturalists. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway carries more passengers than any other heritage railway in the UK and the National Railway Museum is to be found in the county capital city, York.
