There is plenty to do on your doorstep. Walking and playing on the sandy beach or swimming in the sea, ideal for the traditional family beach holiday. Filey Coble Landing, where the Filey fishing fleet and lifeboat are kept and launched, is a few hundred yards away. A short walk along the beach takes you to the rock pools of Filey Brigg which is also famous for its angling. Filey is a mecca for bird watchers and has its own reserve "Filey Dams" as well as the nearby world famous RSPB reserve on the 400 foot Bempton cliffs with fantastic sea views. Filey Brigg also has its fair share of rare birds.
Filey and the surrounding area boast many beautiful walks, on the Yorkshire coast, North Yorkshire
Moors and the East Yorkshire Wolds. Filey Brigg is where the Cleveland Way ends and the Wolds Way begins.Filey has been a seaside resort since Edwardian times and a fishing village for much longer. It is smaller and more refined than Bridlington and Scarborough and there is much less noisy development on the sea front.
There is also Filey bird garden and animal park on the outskirts of Filey and Playdale Farm in nearby Cayton village
Interesting attractions in near by Scarborough.The Harbour , Castle and Seafront. With magnificent sea views and lots of attractions.
Sealife centre Lots of different fish but nowhere near as good as the deep in Hull but still worth a visit for a great day out for all the family.
The Stephen Joseph Theatre in the round in Scarborough. Alan Ayckbourn is the artistic director and many of his plays are put on here. It was the old Odeon cinema and has had millions invested to make it a remarkable venue. See some brilliant plays.
Interesting North Yorkshire attractions.Walks on the North Yorkshire Moors.
Eden Camp, an interesting second world war museum. near Malton and Flamingoland. Well worth a visit while on Holiday.
The North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Timetables and much more for this working steam railway which threads its way through the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors walking country. Very popular while you are on holiday.
The National railway Museum,York. All the trains and history you could possibly imagine. A wonderful museum and best of all it is free.
Several popular York Museums. Including the Castle Museum with its famous recreated cobbled street
Interesting attractions in and around Bridlington.Sewerby Park Attractive gardens overlooking the bay with sea views (also a childrens zoo and pitch and putt) with a stately house containing a small museum. Various events through the year attract large audiences.
Bridlington Spa A very large old theatre type venue that holds all sorts of concerts, shows and events. The Spa has now had a major refurbishment and is the largest venue in the area.
Flamborough Head A protected coastline with spectacular white cliffs, arches and stacks as well as massive seabird colonies. Places to visit: Bempton cliffs, Thornwick Bay, North Landing, The light house and Silex Bay, South Landing, Danes Dyke, Sewerby and on to Bridlington. There is a coastal footpath all the way round.
Yorkshire Belle sails from Bridlington Harbour It goes on various cruises and sometimes goes to the magnificent Bempton Cliffs which tower vertically over 300ft above the sea. See this important sea bird colony from a very different perspective. Well worth it if the sea is calm.
Interesting attractions in and around Whitby.Whitby itself The setting is fantastic. Walk out along both East and West piers and along the narrow winding streets. Walk along the beach if the tide is out to Sandsend. Try taking some pictures. Can you beat Frank Meadow Sutcliffe's photos. Go to the gallery and have a look.
Whitby museum Not a large museum but well worth a visit with loads of information on local fossils.
Whitby Abbey A ruin but in a magnificent position on the cliff tops and next door to a church where Dracula supposedly sheltered after he jumped ashore from a sinking ship . Great sea views. To get there you can walk through the old narrow streets from the town centre.
Lifeboat museum A very small museum on the harbour side but free and you can read all about the local rescues, view some amazing photos and leave a donation for the RNLI. The centrepiece is the old Whitby rowing lifeboat. Nearby you can take a trip on an old motor lifeboat.
Robin Hoods Bay. This used to be a fishing village and is perched on the edge of the cliff. The rock pools are some of the best in the country at low water and there are some lovely walks to Ravenscar a few miles away. Walk along the cliff top (or beach if the tide is out) and back along the old railway track that goes through the old alum quarry .
Interesting attractions in Hull.The Deep. This houses one of the worlds largest aquarium tanks in a stunning building on the banks of the Humber Estuary close to the centre of Hull and all the local museums. It attracts visitors from all over Europe. It really is worth visiting if you have not been and why not visit some of Hull's other museums, especially the maritime museum.
Hull Museums. Several really good museums and I think all free with the unique chance to be taken on a guided tour around the Arctic Corsair one of the last of Hull's side-winder trawlers (not open every day so check and you may need to book). If you visit the Maritime museum look out for a photo of our great grandfather peering out of the wheelhouse of his fishing boat.
Other interesting attractions Hornsea Freeport. Shopping by the sea. Hornsea is a small seaside town with a good discount shopping centre. Top brands at low prices. Visit Mr Moos home made ice cream cafe/shop (just after Skipsea village on the way to Hornsea). Hornsea also has a seafront and a Mere (the largest natural lake in Yorkshire).
