Where to go and what to do in Somerset - Frome

Frome is a town of enormous charm, with its steep, winding streets, its wealth of beautiful old buildings and its friendly, relaxed atmosphere. It has more listed buildings than any other town in Somerset (357 at the last count), many of them reminders of a rich Wessex industrial history of cloth, agriculture and country market trading. It remains the biggest of the five Mendip towns and is renown for its thriving Arts & Crafts community.

Older than Bath (13 miles north), its history dates from AD685, when St Aldhelm founded a mission on the River Frome. The Frome continues to meander through, passing the unique, Grade 1 Listed Blue House. Frome has largely escaped insensitive redevelopment, bequeathing it a legacy of 18th century cloth merchants' homes and Trinity, one of the country's best examples of industrial housing from the 1600s. It is an ideal touring base for the many attractions of the area, including stunning Stourhead and Longleat.
