    Easy to find and worth a visit. Good access and stuff to do nearby. Shame about the charges as normal.  more »

    Very disappointing visit, nothing much to see there. Way too overpriced for what is there. We were out in 20 min.  more »

  • Outstanding! This is not to be missed. The mosaics themselves are just incredible. Add to that very well written displays and discussions that put them in context. And then the timeline museum - where I read every word. And those little videos that you might normally skip? Don't skip the one here, it is really good. On top of all that we did the 40 minute tour and gained a wealth of additional information. Go to see the mosaics, but don't pass up the other opportunities. We spent 3 hours here and had a nice lunch in the on-site cafe.
  • Real history, on your doorstep. I've visited the Roman Palace at Fishbourne many times, especially as it's a go to venue for school trips. The facilities have been well looked after, and there's always a real sense of wonder viewing the museum and associated relics. The on-site café is a great option for lunch and various events throughout the year keep each visit fresh and exciting, especially for the children. It's also a pleasure to support local attractions that have a real history, not just another faceless theme park.
  • Awesome for a history lover, I was a bit gutted that it seems so much smaller than when I was a kid though!(well obviously) the women greeting were AMAZING, so lovely. It's good for a quick hour or so pop in but not a whole day
  • Interesting educational trip with the kids. It's an archaeological site, not a playground though. The café and giant spoil mounds next door were a welcome place for a runaround for the kids and a decent coffee for me!
  • Came here with my parents when I came down for a visit. As someone who likes to metal detecting I love history. The mosaic floors are incredible and in amazing condition. There is also a nice display of Roman artifacts.
