Lovely street full of interesting shops and stack of antiquities. Not the kind of place to visit fleetingly. Be prepared to spend some money as there is something for everyone here.

The people who use it as a car park ruin, not only the look of the historic street, but the cost of having to replace and repair the flag stones and cobbles is unnecessary and in fact some area now are repaired with tarmac, very...More

Lovely place to stroll up and down the cobbled street, lots of unusual shop to buy present especially this time of year, several nice cafes to stop and enjoy watching the world go buy

This hill is a famous landmark of Frome. It is an ancient street lined with quirky shops and on market Sunday, stalls and street merchants. Steep and cobbled it is the epitome of streets of this era and most charming.

We'd looked forward to coming to Frome but found the shops and cafes on Catherine Hill a bit pretentious. Full of vintage shops, and independent arty shops. Over-priced and clearly aimed at visitors to Frome.

Cobbled and quaint, small individual shops which are rare these days. Interesting and well worth a stroll. A gem of a street.

That is a tricky question to answer as a lot of the shops are individually owned and each owner probably has a different point of view. It also depends on the size of the dog... You would always leave your dog outside as it... More
