Welcome to Discover Filey

A non profit company limited by guarantee, Discover Filey Development Trust has now been formed to take the project forward with the provision of a heritage and visitors centre on the Filey Country Park.We are working closely with Scarborough Borough Council and Filey Town Council a concept plan has been produced for the centre and grant applications will be submitted in the next few months see the Filey Council annual report for our latest update

Discover the hidden world of Filey Bay’s natural environment and heritage. Whether you are an educator, family or visitor, we hope you can find information here which will educate, excite and entertain.

The information and interpretation about this area of the Yorkshire Coast is poorly developed. Little information is available, particularly of the undersea environment and maritime heritage. In cooperation with other organisations in the area involved in conservation and nature tourism, our group has developed programmes of events and activities, featuring the beautiful fauna, flora and unique heritage of our area.

Our target audiences are schools and families, both within our local communities and beyond. We believe that by reaching a younger generation, we can encourage enthusiasm for the environment and heritage. Today’s enthused youngsters will be tomorrow’s visitors and local entrepreneurs, fostering an ethos of nature tourism and local vibrancy. The result will be that our local communities develop in a way that is both sensitive to the natural environment and grounded in heritage.

We would like to thank our Leader Programme funders, Filey Town Council and Scarborough Brorough Council, for their support.
