This is an excellent example of a Roman palace/settlement dating from the early period AD. There are beautiful mosaics and a well-organised route around the palace and its environs. The web site is informative and accurate - so use it!

What a great place to visit to learn history. Schools must think this too as there were quite a few school children around. It's well set out and lots to look at. We had a chance for the Artefact talk and feel the objects. The lady was definitely interested in her subject and very knowledgeable. At times it was hard... More

We took an early train to reach a Saturday children's workshop on forging (as in handstamping!) money. This was ยฃ15 but staff waived museum entry fees for us all so not a bad deal. It is well laid out, the displays are clear and tell you what to look for in the mosaics. A ten-minute Tony Robinson film is worth... More

Just visited Fishbourne again with my grown up family after many years. Had a really enjoyable visit which exceeded my expectations. Possibly lucky it was a fairly quiet Sunday in October, but initially joined a small group on the guided tour of the Conversation Centre. Excellent guide who explained their work and allowed hands on examination of some artefacts! Then... More
