Filey Bay

Filey is situated on the Yorkshire coast, 7½ miles south of Scarborough and 10½ miles north of Bridlington. Its situation overlooking the North Sea, and the huge sweep of Filey Bay, has been attracting visitors since at least the 1600s. The Bay is framed to the north by Filey Brigg, an important geological, historical and ornithological site, and to the south by the high chalk cliffs of Speeton and Bempton that lead to Flamborough Head. In between lies miles of golden sands which for generations have been a magnet for holidaymakers.

In addition to the stunning beaches, Filey is a town with a rich history, cobblestone streets, charming architecture, and a vibrant arts and culture scene. Whether you're a history buff or simply appreciate old-world charm, you'll find plenty to love in Filey.

Filey has been a haven of peace and tranquility since at least the 1600s. In 1806, the Gentleman's Magazine described it as an escape from the boisterous crowds of Scarborough, highlighting its reputation for simplicity and quiet pleasures. Today, visitors can still enjoy that same serenity, whether the weather is fine or foul.
