Things to do at Filey Beach review

Filey is a seaside resort on the Yorkshire coast. It is a lot less commercialised than some of its neighbours and it’s a great place to spend the day. Like a lot of the beaches in the area, most of the sand does get covered at high tide. For most of the time, there is a vast sandy beach. The sea can be pretty fierce here even on a bad weather day in July. If you head north along the promenade there is usually a pebbly section, even when the tide is in, next to Filey Brigg.

Filey Brigg is a headland which you can walk along and down to the beach (at low tide). There is also a playground next to the car park for the country park. The seafront at Filey is long and stretches from the Brigg right down to the southern end where you will find a cafe, shop and if you walk up the hill there is the lovely Glen Gardens park with lots of different things for kids to do either for free or very cheaply. There is also a couple of mini-golf courses nearby.

Along the main promenade section, you will find a paddling pool, crazy golf and further down some amusements. Kids will love to see the big RNLI boat along here and there’s also a few fishing boats.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
