Perhaps less widely known that its neighbouring towns, Frome boasts all the history of a Somerset town but without the hefty tourist footfall.
Winding streets and boutique businesses give the town an authentic feel. The historic marketplace comes to life every weekend, with local farmers pitching up to flog the best local produce Somerset has to offer. The Cheese and Grain is the hub of social life, playing host to world-class music acts and regular food and drink festivals.
Just a short car journey away from this charming town is Farleigh Hungerford, where visitors will find a historic castle to explore and great spots for wild swimming in the hot summer months.
