Hunting Raven Books
Hunting Raven is a bookshop with a long tradition of independent bookselling in Frome. Situated on the beautiful, medieval Cheap Street this book shop specialises in children’s books as well as stocking plenty of local titles and an extensive arts and craft book section.
Run by the unashamedly bookish Winstone’s, this is independent bookselling at its finest; expect welcoming, knowledgeable staff, shelves lovingly stocked with all manner of titles that reflect the town and a shop fiercely proud of its position within the thriving independent scene in Frome. As if all that wasn’t enough, manager Tina has exciting plans so watch this space for a new events programme which looks set to be the icing on this book lovers cake.
“We are a community focused independent bookshop trying to elevate books and reading within the beautiful historic market town of Frome”
The picturesque market town of Frome lies in the heart of Somerset, surrounded by vast swathes of open farmland, chalky ridges, undulating hills and valleys and generally stunning scenery at every turn. Explore the many cobblestone streets lined with an eclectic mix of independents and you’ll find everything from interior decor, quirky antiques and vintage clothing stores to children’s boutiques, florists and cafes.
On the first Sunday of each month between March and December, the streets of Frome become a pedestrian playground and the town welcomes a pop up community of producers, crafters and makers. Stroll through hundreds of stalls celebrating the best from local producers at the farmers market on Stony Street or the artisanal trinket filled suitcases and prams at the “suitcase sale” on top of Catherine Hill. This unique market celebrates the independent movers and shakers in the South West and draws thousands of visitors each year.View neighbourhoodView community
