What's on nearby?

Filey Beach

It seems to go on forever and there’s always plenty of room for the little ones to let off some steam and for the adults to walk for miles uninterrupted.

The Coble Landing

There is lots of kiosks here selling seaside snacks, teas and coffees. Essential before a walk along the spacious promenade, dotted with coastal themed sculptures.

The Filey Brigg

This narrow rock peninsula is a magnet for historians and achaeologists. The cliff top above The Brigg forms part of the Country Park, which is popular with picnickers, birdwatchers and hang-gliders, and is the start of The Wolds Way.

Filey Museum

A past winner of Discover Yorkshire Coast’s Small Attraction of the Year award, is housed in a building dating from 1696, and is crammed with fascinating memorabilia, including an extensive photographic archive.

Dalby Forest

Cyclists can enjoy a challenge at Dalby Forest, or perhaps follow some of the Tour De Yorkshire route and tackle the famous Cote De Harwood Dale or just pedal village to village along the idyllic country roads of the nearby Wolds and admire the views David Hockney has famously painted.

Bempton Cliffs

Bird Lovers will love the nature reserve at Bempton Cliffs to see the 250,000 gillemots, gannets and puffins who flock there to raise their young between April and August. It is a haven for birds and animals, including an important colony of great-crested newts.

Stephen Joseph Theatre

Scarborough is 20 minutes north of Filey where theatre goers can enjoy the world premiers of Alan Ackybourn plays.
