Frinton’s uniqueness was promoted to ensure that house owners and visitors could expect quietude with no amusement attractions, kiss-me-quick hats or beach paraphernalia could be bought along the Front.
The Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust has partnered with Resorting to the Coast to produce a new town trail highlighting the cultural quirkiness of this original holiday resort.

An unwritten rule was the media avoided writing about or photographing the famous, The Royals and London Society who flocked to Frinton for the golf and tennis seasons throughout the summer.
