If you have any interest in Roman Britain a great place to visit. Suits all ages with plenty of dressing up opportunities for children. Reasonable price and nice friendly cafe.

Wonderful atmosphere , unspoilt by excessive tourist development. Lovely mosaics. Views over the downs. Walk or cycle from here over Bignor hill to Chichester along the Roman road through Eartham woods.

Bignor has some very fine mosaics (arguably more interesting than Fishbourne) housed within quaint thatched buildings. The villa is surrounded by beautiful down land. My preschooler loves to run around the grass labyrinths, look at the mosaics and eat Ice cream. The cafe only serves...More

This was our third visit. If we lived nearer we would visit again and again. Just the right amount of supporting information, some things for children to engage with. The whole site has a certain charm which we love. Staff are very helpful and knowledgable

I am uncertain, but it is only a half hour drive from Horsham, if you have difficulty finding out let me know it is only a 10 minute drive from me.
