very picturesque - such a shame we visited on a sunday when almost all of the shops were closed! we will definitely return & hopefully visit the market as well as the very interesting independent shops on the Hill.

It is a hill and it is cobbled bit it's is worth the walk. One of Frome old streets with a new character.

A hidden gem not noticeable as you drive through Frome, but climb up from Stoney Street to the top of Catherine Hill and the rewards are great. Artisan shops and cafes, restored cobbled street and quaint houses, Catherine Hill is well worth exploring

We didn't notice the hill climb so much to look at of particular interest to us was the dog shop and the sixties dresses etc. There were numerous street stalls up the hill and the delight of Rye Bakery at the top. If you visit on an Independent Market Day use the park & Ride suggested donation £2 you can walk down in 15 mins but the coach is welcome for the trip back to the Park & Ride.

Shopping prices perhaps a little dearer but perhaps what you could expect from small town of independents

We had a great day shopping in Frome and this was a fantastic shopping experience . Catherine Hill is full of unique little boutique style shops with something for everyone. There are lots of vintage shops and craft shops but me best of all was the vinyl record store. If you don't go to Frome and discover the wonder of this town you'll be missing out .
