Filey has received much positive coverage of the years for its stunning views, rich history and compact centre and we are committed to working with the community to further the development for future years.
The BID will:
- Brighten access points
- Create outdoor itineraries that embrace natural surroundings
- Support a new or existing event
- Improve visitor information at key access points
- Promote Fileys heritage and support projects that will enhance the visitor experience via trails/interpretation boards.
Filey has attracted a lot of the attention over the years and now with the discovery of USS Bonhomme Richard which fought in the American War of Independence, creates yet another reason for people to visit Filey and explore the different itineraries as part of the coastal route.
We have also factored one of the key Coastal Sculpture Collection pieces to be located within the town in year three which will be developed over the next 12 months
We have committed to support Filey Steampunk Festival to help increase the size and diversity of acts at this already successful event from 1 to 2 days to encourage the community of Steampunk followers to become overnight visitors rather than day-trippers.
This is a project that many members of the Filey community have explored over recent years to make the town accessible for all, but up until now, there has not been the funding to truly explore the various options.
The land train will carry passengers around the town, linking the existing car parks with both the town and beach to encourage visitors to really explore the town.
