The Romans left their mark on the Sussex coast and especially in Fishbourne where putting in water pipes was interrupted by finding real treasure in the same field where a new housing estate was planned: a Roman villa. The mosaic floors are displayed well and...More

Spent a couple of hours here. Lots to see inside and out. There was a couple of school parties here on the day we visited which made it a bit noisy but apart from that it was very good. Worth a visit.
