The resort provides a great choice of high street shops and boutiques. The Brunswick Centre is a prestigious all-weather shopping centre with a department store and thirty-five other retail outlets. The Centre is located in Scarborough’s pedestrianised shopping precinct, which, with the surrounding streets, has many individual boutiques, specialist shops and inviting cafes and bars A short way down the coast is Filey, an Edwardian English seaside town with a friendly atmosphere; a perfect place for those who want an active holiday, a short break or for those who just prefer to relax with the restful background of fishermen mending their nets.

The five-mile stretch of award winning sandy beach is protected by the rocky grandeur of Filey Brigg, a haven for a variety of birds and wildlife. All generations of families can enjoy the nature trail along Filey Brigg as they explore the many rock pools in search of sea creatures. Surfing, fishing, yachting, golf, walking and bird watching are just a few of the activities, which are here to be enjoyed.
