Description:
Filey Holiday Camp railway station was a railway station built by the London & North Eastern Railway to serve the Butlins Holiday Camp just south of Filey, in the then East Riding of Yorkshire, England. (Filey became part of North Yorkshire in 1974.) The station was officially opened on 10 May 1947 by Lord Middleton, Lord Lieutenant of the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The station was situated at the end of a short branch line off the Yorkshire Coast Line. It had four long terminus island platforms to cater for the large number of holiday makers arriving and departing from the holiday camp each Saturday during the holiday season. The station was located to the west of the A165 and was connected to the holiday camp by a private subway under the road. Passengers were taken to and from the station by a road train using this subway. Passenger numbers dropped significantly as more people arrived at the camp by car, and the station closed to passengers on 17 July 1977.
