About Frinton-on-Sea

This is a delightful seaside resort which gives way to the pleasures of yester-year whilst offering the very best of modern facilities for visitors.

Frinton, is a sedate area which retains a refined atmosphere and many gracious Victorian properties from when the then small seaside village was developed as a resort in the 1860's by Sir Richard Cooker. These lovely red brick houses are built along broad, tree lined avenues leading towards a sweeping expanse of grass known as The Greensword, below which a fine sandy beach runs for the length of the town.

Visitors to Frinton experience a peace and perfection not normally associated with many seaside resorts, for here you will find no noisy arcades, nor fun-fairs, in fact there is nothing here to detract from the overall attractiveness of this charming resort. It offers panoramic sea views, and provides richly for outdoor pursuits such as tennis, cricket, golf, cycling, pleasant trails for walking, beautiful gardens and splendid opportunities for sailing and sea fishing.

During the busy holiday season there is a programme of summer theatricals, plenty of restaurants, tea-rooms, a good range of shops and excellent hotel accommodation.

Frinton-on-Sea is a wonderful all year round resort, ideal for exploring the superb Essex coastline, the ancient harbour at Harwich and the estuaries of the rivers Stour and Colne.
