A former fishing village,
Filey has been transformed into a popular,
traditional seaside resort and is protected
from inclement weather by a spit of land - or
brigg - which projects out into the sea.
The area boasts several miles of sandy beach as well as an enthralling folk museum that offers varied displays on aspects of rural life and local history.
Each summer the town stages a week-long Edwardian Festival featuring traditional seaside events - including a Punch and Judy show. It also plays host to an annual fishing festival. Activities here include surfing, angling, walking, yachting, golf, and bird watching.
