Filey Inns and Taverns

Filey is a small and friendly seaside town and is an ideal location for anyone who likes an active holiday, or for those who would like to relax, taking in the sights and sounds along the five mile's of award winning beach.

Filey Beach

The wildlife and bird sanctuary on the rocky outcrop of Filey Brigg can be explored along the nature trail which gives access to many rock pools full of sea creatures. At very low tide a ridge of rocks known as the Spittals, half way along the Brigg, stretching out to sea can be seen and it has often been suggested that it is the remains of a Roman pier, but more recently opinion is that it is a natural rock formation. One of the caves at the back of the Brigg is known as the "Emperor's Bath"

Filey had a population of around five hundred in 1801, at which time it was a fishing village straddling the border between the North and East Riding of Yorkshire. With the coming of the railways in 1847 Filey began to grow into a holiday resort, attracting many of the gentry. Amongst the visitors was Charlotte Bronte who stayed at Cliff House, which is now the Bronte Café.
