Out and about…
Frinton-on-Sea was first referenced in the Doomsday book of 1086, appearing as “Frientuna”. Until late Victorian times Frinton was just a church, several farms and a few cottages. It was then developed as a fashionable seaside resort, attracting visitors from high society, such as the Prince of Wales who frequented the golf club and Churchill who rented a house. No wonder Frinton-on-Sea feels a bit like a Chelsea by the sea as Connaught Avenue, named after the Duke of Connaught, was quickly known and appreciated as the Bond Street of East Anglia. With its air of serenity and communal pride, the town’s genteel nature continues to prevail “inside the gates” today. Even the Tennis Club feels like a mini Wimbledon with the so many manicured grass courts, in fact it was world famous during Edwardian England as next to Wimbledon, Frinton was regarded as the major venue on the tennis calendar and a social standing on par with Henley and Ascot. Maybe you are rightly drawn to the wonderful sandy beaches and the long walks offered along this sunny Esplanade or should you wish to explore the water sports, Frinton-on-Sea has it all!
The local high street has a gentile quality and traditional quality: Butchers shops, fishmongers, bakers, greengrocers, a newsagent where people remember your name!
Do no miss the evening entertainments at the fabulous Frinton summer theatre where the productions are attracting raving national reviews.
Frinton-on-Sea is indeed the pearl of Essex and managed to retain a timeless atmosphere of tranquility which makes it a happy place to live everyday or just as a weekend retreat.
