Frome is a town and civil parish in eastern Somerset, England. Located at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, the town is built on uneven high ground, centres on the River Frome; the town is 13 miles south of Bath, 43 miles east of the county town, Taunton and 107 miles west of London. In the 2011 census, the population was given as 26,203; the town is the largest in the Mendip district of Somerset and is part of the parliamentary constituency of Somerton and Frome. In April 2010 a large hoard of third-century Roman coins was unearthed in a field near the town. Frome was one of the largest towns in Somerset until the Industrial Revolution, was larger than Bath from AD 950 until 1650; the town first grew due to the cloth industry. The town was enlarged during the 20th century but retains a large number of listed buildings, most of the centre falls within a conservation area; the town acts as an economic centre for the surrounding area. It provides a centre for cultural and sporting activities, including the annual Frome Festival and Frome Museum.

A number of notable individuals were born in, or have lived in, the town. In 2014, Frome was called the "sixth coolest town" in Britain by The Times newspaper. Frome was shortlisted as one of three towns in the country for the 2016 Urbanism Awards in the'Great Town Award' category. In its 2018 report on the "Best places to live in the UK", the Sunday Times listed Frome as the best in the South West. In April 2019, Time Out listed Frome among 15 of the best weekend breaks from London. Finds from Whatley Quarry near Mells suggest the presence of late Pleistocene man. Neolithic bowl barrows have been located in nearby Trudoxhill. At Murtry Hill, just 3 km to the north-west of Frome, a Neolithic long barrow 35m long by 19m wide was located with substantial upright stones, a'chest' burial and cremation urns. Within Frome itself, another long barrow was found, with pottery and a standing stone. Others from the Bronze Age have been identified in Berkley to the north-east and near Nunney to the south-west.

Iron Age hill forts lie to the east. There is some limited evidence of Roman settlement in the area; the remains of a villa were found in the village of 3 miles to the west of Frome. Another villa is suggested at Selwood. Southill House in Cranmore, 10 miles southwest, has evidence of a villa with a hypocaust. Two villas have been surveyed in the Hemington area, 3 miles to the north-west of Frome, alongside other sites and boundaries. Iron Age forts in the area were re-occupied by the Roman military: Tedbury. A Roman road ran from the west of the Mendips passing south of Frome en route to Old Sarum and Clausentum or to Moriconium for the export of lead and silver from mines in the Mendips. Part of a Romano-British sculpted head and part of a Roman road surface were found near Clink, Frome: linked to a Roman road running south from Aquae Sulis, but this has been traced only as far as Oldford Farm, just 2 miles north of Frome. Just to the southeast is Friggle Street, suggestive of a Roman road. In April 2010, the Frome Hoard, one of the largest-ever hoards of Roman coins discovered in Britain, was found by a metal detectorist.

The hoard of 52,500 coins dated from the third century AD and was found buried in a field near the town, in a jar 14 inches below the surface. The coins were excavated by archaeologists from the Portable Antiquities Scheme, some are now on display in the British Museum; the find was the subject of a BBC TV programme Digging for Britain in August 2010. Another hoard of 250 Dubonnic coins in an urn were found when ploughing near Nunney in 1860. Other coins continue to be found in Roman of various emperors and Byzantine; the name Frome comes from the Brythonic word *frāmā meaning fair, fine or brisk and describing the flow of the river. A church built by St. Aldhelm in 685 is the earliest evidence of Saxon occupation of Frome. Aldhelm was a member of cousin to King Cenwealh; the name was first recorded in 701 when Pope Sergius gave permission to Bishop Aldhelm to found a monastery "close to the river, called From". The Saxon kings appear to have used Frome as a base from. In 934 a witenagemot was held there, indicating that Frome must have been a significant settlement, with a royal palace.

The charter names a Welsh sub-king, sixteen bishops and twenty five ministers, all called by Æthelstan, now regarded as the first king of England. Æthelstan's half-brother, King Eadred, died in Frome on 23 November 955. At the time of the Domesday Survey, the manor was owned by King William, was the principal settlement of the largest and wealthiest hundred in Somerset. Over the following years, parts of the original manor were spun off as distinct manors. By the 13th century, the Abbey had bought up some of the other manors and was exploiting the profits from market and trade in the town. Local tradition asserts that Frome was a medieval borough, the reeve of Frome is mentioned in
