thing about the Coast.............
Historic Filey is an
attractive town with a wide appeal, as a fishing town by the sea it has
a rich heritage particularly associated with maritime subjects that have
attracted international recognition.
With a unique natural
environment and surrounding countryside, it has an established tourism
market and a close proximity to the the North York Moors National Park.
Because of this, it is well placed for the visitor to use Filey as a
base for exploring the wider assets of the Yorkshire area that is rich
in natural life and culture.
Traditionally, Filey has
drawn visitors from all ages because of its long stretches of
beach, however, the town can cater for the short breaks and the growth
in the high quality niche tourism markets based upon the historical,
environmental and heritage assets to the locality.
version of the Town Guide has now been published and yet again, it
reflects the qualities of the town. It is packed with a wide
range of invaluable information and features that are beautifully
illustrated and articles that are written by local specialists.
The Guide is funded purely from advertisements, donations, The Filey
Town Council and various outlets in the town.
The Guide is produced by the Town
Guide Working Party who are a group of volunteers who devote their free time to
gather information, articles and photographs of interest for future

Scarborough 2006 - 2009 and when preparing this page, reference was made
