One of the key attractions in the Frome calendar is its annual festival in July, which involves more than 200 events and has been taking place for over a decade. It is a real mix of music, literary and arts, with something happening at numerous venues across the town across all ten days of the festival.

Frome also has two theatres - Memorial Theatre and Merlin Theatre - which both show a varied calendar of productions ranging from local to international plays.

Art lovers also enjoy the Cheese and Grain - a unique venue that hosts many eclectic events, such as craft and antique fairs to live music.

For those who prefer to shop, the town is developing a reputation for good boutique retailers, with many small traders opening outlets in the Cheap Street and Catherine Hill areas.

There is also the Frome Museum, which provides a great chance to discover more about the history of the town.

Overall, Frome is a lovely historic market town with lots of architectural interest. People visiting are encouraged to take a walk around to discover parts of the Medieval street pattern, including Cheap Street with has a stream running along it.

Last year, The Times named the town as the sixth coolest place to live in the UK - which has helped to boost interest in property for sale in Frome.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801714349-ADNFCR
