Black Swan Art, 2 Bridge Street, BA11 1BB , Frome
Frome’s accessibility makes it ideal for a day shopping the independent stores on beautiful Catherine Hill or discovering the famous Frome Independent Sunday market.
Things to do in Frome, Somerset. Frome has been named by The Times as one of the best places to live in Britain, Frome’s welcoming charm is instant. Its name means ‘brisk-flowing river’, and even today the town’s steep medieval streets wind down towards the river and natural springs in the market place. Jump off the train at Frome railway station and head to Catherine Hill, cornerstone of Frome’s vibrant independent shopping scene. Here you’ll find local produce, holistic beauty and vintage clothes alongside cosy tea shops and bespoke jewellery studios.
Head to the top of Catherine Hill for a coffee at Rye, a converted chapel that now houses an artisan bakery, coffee house, children’s play area and art gallery. Back down on the high street you’ll find music stores and interior design retailers on any day of the week, joined by town markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The Frome market scene is thriving: on the first weekend of each month the town hosts Frome Vegan Market, followed by the award-winning Frome Farmer’s Market on each second weekend. On each first Sunday of the month you’ll find the Frome Independent - fast becoming one of the UK’s most popular destination markets.
Equally as exciting is the Cheese and Grain, rooted in the centre of Frome and one of Somerset’s key music venues - it’s hosted sets from some of the finest acts in the world. Where to eat in Frome isn’t hard: eateries abound in the town centre. Choose from upscale restaurants like Archangel or intimate family-run affairs like Thai Kitchen.
Explore outside Frome to see rolling Somerset countryside at its finest: walks include the 50-mile long West and East Mendip way, starting in Frome and ending by the sea at Weston-super-Mare. For urban adventures, Frome’s eBike hire scheme means you can discover the town with an electrically-assisted cycle, making traversing hills a breeze.
