When visited Frome for about 3 or 4 hours, but we did not no what to expect as we had never been there before. I was pleased to see one of two little streets like this, with a selection of different independent shops.

Plenty of independent quality shops with enough variety to peak everyone's interest. Always worth an hour or two to look around especially if you stop one the super coffee shop's.

Quaint cobbled street full of independent shops. Cafe's, and good eating and Idealic atmosphere as you walk and browse. Definately visit Catherine hill if you are in the neighbourhood and looking for something that little bit different.

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.

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
