Guided Walks

Discover Frome has launched regular light and informative guided walks, which will take place twice a week throughout the year on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.

The Sunday walks, entitled Heart of Frome, will run every week at 2.30pm on Sundays not already served by the very popular historical walks run by Frome Society for Local Studies. There is a suggested donation of £3.

The Heart of Frome is a short walk around the centre of town. It will take in some of Frome’s most well-known landmarks. The route starts at the Discover Frome Information Point and ends at St John’s Church, with plenty of facts about Frome’s unique, entertaining and interesting history along the way.


Special Wednesday WalksFrome guided walks

Wednesday walks start at 6pm and are £5 each, payable to the guide. See below for more details about these walks.

Our guides can be identified by their Guided walks badges, yellow
hi-vis and their Frome water bottles.

Please note – for safety reasons the Guided Walks Frome will only take place if there are at least two people booked on.
