Glen Gardens is another attraction we chose to go to during our holiday to Filey. Glen Gardens is situated on the south side of Filey, North Yorkshire. Although a small park during the summer months there is plenty to do. It is also a small walk from the beach and has stunning views of the beach near the cliffs.

Glen Gardens were built around the 1830’s and were part of the private estate of Ravine Hall. Although the hall no longer exists, a café stands in its place.

If you enter the park near the car park you will come to a large grassed area that is perfect for picnics. This then leads to the playground.  The playground has a range of equipment suitable for a range of ages. Blake was straight there after spotting it from a distance.

Carrying on in the direction of the sea you will soon spot the café. The café sells a wide range of hot and cold food and drink as well as having indoor and outdoor seating. Next to the café you will find the rest of the attractions such as pedalos, crazy golf and a trampoline. These are all reasonably priced although we chose not to do any due to having spent quite a bit on prebooked activities back at Haven. They also have coin operated electric motorbikes for the kids which looked like fun.

We also enjoyed spotting some of the sculptures dotted around Glen Gardens. There was also a lovely little listeners corner, this is space for people to listen and chat without using mobile phones. It is also a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view of the beach and listen to the sounds of nature such as birds and the sea. One of my regrets is not taking enough photos of Glen Gardens and another is not heading down to the beach, which is a must next time we visit.
