"They said there was nothing to see." Frinton-on-Sea by planxty
Frinton-on-Sea Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 28 photos
I had never been to Frinton before, although it is one of the "holy triumvirate" of places held dear by people from the East End (capitals intended) of London. Clacton, Walton and Frinton are all places that, in past times, provided a breath of fresh air, literally, from the grime and pollution of the capital.
I took all of them in on a daytrip, just for a look around. I met a local lad in a bar and asked him what there was to see in Frinton. "Nothing", he quickly and certainly replied. "What", said I, "no pier." "Nope." "Perhaps a museum or something?", I persisted. "Nope." "A church, perhaps" To this I got a little more reply. He said, "Well, there's the new church down the road, but it's not very exciting."
OK, so it's not the Riviera, but I did actually find a fascinating old church that my new-found friend had obviously overlooked, and a very pleasant seafront with a nice walk into Walton, should you require the more banal seaside pursuits. Like anywhere else, have a little look round and you're sure to find something.
- Pros:Pleasant, genteel little place.
- Cons:Not a whole lot to do.
OK, don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be offensive here, as in the American expression "take a hike, buddy", I'm... more travel advice
