We visited the Roman Palace and were not disappointed. It was half term and there was lots for the children to do, but that didn't detract from the visit. Lots of artifacts to see and still being discovered.

Amazing place to visit.the mosaics are breathtaking in their complexity and size. This is only the north range of a four sided palace, bigger than Buckingham Palace.

Large interesting collection of in-situ Roman mosaics, mostly from the first century. Well presented and protected in a modern building. The video is informative. Inside is completely wheelchair accessible.

We visited Fishbourne in October so it was probably quieter than normal. The people working at the palace were lovely, very helpful and knowledgeable. We watched the film which added another level to the visit, walked around the museum segment, and the gardens which gave...More
