Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Donkeys on the sands

Published on October 30th, 2018

Smiles all around in this special selection of archive photographs taken down on the sands by Frith Company photographers from 1906 to 1963. Donkey rides were once a quintessential part of the traditional British seaside experience - less so today perhaps - and we hope you enjoy these favourites from The Francis Frith Collection today.
