Filey is a wholly unique, quiet; and quite beautiful, small seaside town on the picturesque North Yorkshire coast.
Betwixt it's more famous cousins, Bridlington and Scarborough, it is often - and to it's benefit - overlooked.
In circa 1830, the now Grade II listed Langford Villa was built and later became the summer residence of the Terry's family, the famous York chocolatiers. Shortly after, in 1835, Birmingham solicitor John Wilkes Uneet bought seven acres of land, which would later become the Royal Crescent and was opened in the 1850s.
In the 20th Century, the Butlins Holiday Camp proved to play a major role in Filey's economy, a tourism staple, bringing joy until 1984. Today, Filey proudly retains its fishing heritage; and the warmth and friendliness of its townsfolk is ever-present leading to that natural phenomenon that Filey does truly make you smiley!
