Filey is a pretty seaside town in North Yorkshire, about eight miles south of Scarborough. Its Grade II-listed station lies on the Hull to Scarborough Line, and opened its doors in 1846 - it was extended several times in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with a major redevelopment in 1988. Today, Filey station operates a regular service throughout the day to Scarborough in the north and Bridlington and Hull in the south, carrying both local commuters and visitors touring this dramatic stretch of Britain's east coast.
Filey is a relatively small town, but its beautiful seafront - less than a 10-minute walk from the station - is a popular tourist destination, with a sandy beach and attractive promenade. Offering beautiful coastal views, idyllic walks and a host of hotels and B&Bs, the town is ideal for a weekend stay, and is the eastern end of the Cleveland Way, a spectacular long-distance walk skirting the North York Moors.
