It’s the perfect place to take a walk, fly a kite, build a sandcastle, snooze in a deckchair, or maybe do a spot of birdwatching – Filey Brigg, a peninsula at the northern end of the town. Early spring may find you face to face with a snoozing seal on the beach, and in summer porpoise sightings are regular. Then why not follow it up with a trip to the much-loved Coble Landing, a slipway with a picturesque jumble of boats and kiosks, for a cuppa and a bacon buttie?

The town, too, is full of gentle pleasures, with its Edwardian architecture, quirky shops and intriguing museum. And – it’s official! – Filey boasts the second best B&B in the entire world: TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2014.

With its glorious sweep of soft, golden sand, Filey beach is one of the best in the country for families – it’s so huge that, no matter how busy it gets, it’s never crowded.

Sitting at the Eastern End of the famous Cleveland Way, North Yorkshires Filey is brimming with everything that makes other Yorkshire towns great plus it’s got a beach.

The 12th century parish church dedicated to St Oswald, on Church Hill in the north of the town, is a Grade I listed building.[7] It is the oldest building in Filey[citation needed] and Nicholas Pevsner wrote "This is easily the finest church in the NE corner of the East Riding" (Buildings of England).[8]

Filey is a small town and civil parish in North Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the East Riding of Yorkshire, it is part of the borough of Scarborough between Scarborough and Bridlington on the North Sea coast.

According to the 2011 UK census, Filey parish had a population of 6,981,[1] an increase on the 2001 UK census figure of 6,819.[2]

Filey was a small village until the 18th century when visitors from Scarborough arrived seeking the peace and quiet that Filey then offered.

Filey was in the Ryedale constituency until the 2010 general election when it became part of the newly formed Thirsk and Malton constituency.

This traditional seaside resort, with its sandy beach, historic promenade, fantastic fish and chips and gentle pace of life, is the perfect place to visit for a relaxing and nostalgic day out.

I am wondering if the steps to the beach are steep and whether the hill to the town is long and steep as I really like the destination, being beautiful and ideal as it has a railway station, however, I may well not be able to manage my way around with my stick if I came for a week.Also wondering which parts of the beach are dog friendly? can anyone recommendany other railwaynearby seasidey place which is unspoilt or wild taht may offer an alternative if you think this would be a struggle.

For more than 40 years Butlin's Filey Holiday Camp was a major factor in Filey's economy. Building began in 1939 and continued during the Second World War when it became an air force station known as RAF Hunmanby Moor. In 1945 it became a popular holiday resort with its own railway station and by the late 1950s could cater for 10,000 holiday makers. It closed in 1984, causing a decrease in the holiday makers visiting Filey.[9]
