Things to do in Frome, Somerset

Frome is the most easterly of Mendip's five towns, and also the largest. It has had a long history as a market and agricultural town with, for many centuries, a flourishing cloth industry.

Today, Frome is an attractive place with many historic buildings, particularly around the Catherine Hill area and Cheap Street, which is a narrow cobbled street with a water-course running down the centre.

The town is a thriving local centre for the arts and culture, exemplified by the Black Swan arts and crafts exhibition centre, and the Merlin Theatre.

Frome is also an ideal touring base from which to visit attractions nearby, including the famous city of Bath, 13 miles to the north and nearby Longleat House and Safari Park in Wiltshire.
