A day out in Frinton-on-Sea

Summer is almost here! Unfortunately, it’s still difficult for us to get away on that well needed exotic trip abroad, so as a result UK staycations and day trips are becoming more and more popular. If you’re looking for somewhere coastal to visit this year, why not check out Frinton-on-Sea?

Frinton-on-Sea is a beautiful seaside town with an amazing town centre and community. It also happens to be home to four of our shops; three of which are situated in Connaught Avenue and one at the Triangle Shopping Centre.

Let us tell you a bit about them:

Books – 133 Connaught Avenue

Book lovers rejoice! This treasure of a shop is filled with every genre you can think of: mystery, comedy, romance; they’ve got it all. With shelves bursting with thousands of books and a selection of audio books too, there is such a wide range to choose from. Once you have picked up your new favourite book; head down to the beach, set up a spot, read and enjoy.
