Filey marks the end of the Yorkshire Wolds Way, providing the perfect place to relax after a long walk with plenty for everyone to explore.

Filey is a traditional seaside resort offering those finishing the Yorkshire Wolds Way a place to relax, go for a paddle or sit on the beach and enjoy the view. Its long sandy beach and promenade offer a variety of family friendly activities – from exploring rock pools on Filey Brigg to a sculpture trail along the coast.

This walk follows the Filey Seaside Scramble Tracker Pack, which offers lots of fun activities to help families and other groups discover the wildlife of this interesting seaside town. Search for pebbles and fossils along the beach; identify the flowers near the Cleveland Way; name the trees in Parish Wood; or watch the birds at the Old Tip Nature Reserve. The Tracker Pack is available to hire from Filey Tourist Information Centre for £5 (free on Wednesdays). Telephone 01723 383 636 or email tourismbureau@scarborough.gov.uk for details.

There are plenty of places to stay overnight if you want to make a holiday of your visit. There are also lots of restaurants and pubs for refreshments or evenings out.

But... whether you are visiting Filey at the end of a long walk, for a family day out or a weekend away, no trip would be complete without trying the fantastic fish and chips that are on offer. Treat yourself and tuck in!
