I would recommend that you catch the bus to Scarborough!

Joking aside, from what I remember from a day trip to Filey many years ago there was a run down boating lake south of the town and a few amusements in the beach area of the town. There is bound to be a chip shop, but I don't think there would be much else there.

Filey has a blue flag beach, nice walk out onto the Brig,a country park, crazy golf and a few amusements.

There are a couple of newly refurbished bar/restaurants on the front and the usual pubs and cafes.

Great if the sun is shining and you have kids or for sn evening stroll.

Otherwise would suggest go to Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby for a day each. Also birds at Bempton, Sewerby Hall, Burton Agnes hall and Sledmere House.

You can go sea fishing from all the resorts

I have had day trips to Filey in the past and echo previous comments regards that it is fine when weather is okay. It is a nice beach to go for a swim and myself and my daughter enjoyed playing badminton and frisbee at the country park (and the swings). We also visited St Oswald's church but that's not everyone's cup of tea. There's a little museum but it is only open on certain days at certain times.

Must admit, I've had quite a few customer's who have simply driven through Filey as they could not find anything to do. However, if you want the simple things - dip in the sea, picnic and a walk it's certainly a nice place to spend an afternoon.

I love Ingham's Chip Shop in Filey, you can eat in or take away.I've never been dissapointed (except when we went once out of season at 7pm and it was shut, but that was our fault for not checking!)

Good Koi carp centre in Driffield and I can second the suggestion for Inghams fish and Chips.

I can think of four fishing tackle shops in Scarborough

One on Upper victoria road, Newborough near Britannia Pub, End of foreshore road near luna park and Boyes on Queen street (Upstairs). Sorry can't think of any in Filey.

Filey golf club and theres a nice course in Hunmanby.

Theres 3 boats that go out of Scarborough harbour that do fishing trips.

Large morrisons in Eastfield 5 miles away.
