The Mendip Hills
Built on uneven ground at the edge of the stunning Mendip Hills, there is strong evidence of Roman settlement in the area. In 2010, the ‘Frome Hoard’ of 52,500 Roman coins, one of the largest-ever hoards of Roman coins discovered in Britain was discovered in a field near the town by a metal detectorist. This impressive collection of coins dated from the third century AD and was found in a jar 14 inches below the surface.
Independent Shopping & Frome Market
Today the town of Frome is full of independent and individual shops that are brimming with crafts and creations. The original Somerset Market Town, Frome continues this tradition with regular markets every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. More like a monthly festival, the town centre of Frome is closed to traffic and is transformed into a huge celebratory market event. With music, street theatre, hands on activities and tasty street food alongside local farmer’s produce, a flea market, new designers, crafts and vintage, this is certainly more than your everyday market.
The list of extraordinary destinations that Frome has to offer includes breath-taking heritage sites, The Frome Museum, Longleat Safari and Adventure Park and an abundance of independent shops.
