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 and remains the biggest of the five Mendip towns. Frome is renowned for its thriving Arts community and boasts a high number of resident authors, poets and performance artists.

Older than Bath (13 miles north), its history dates from AD685, when St Adhelm founded a mission on the River Frome. The town has largely escaped extensive redevelopment, and is an ideal touring base for the many attractions of the area
