  • 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 »
  • We took our children 30 years ago and now our granchildren.By chance we arrived when a very knowledgeable guide was about to give a talk on Fishbourne. She was superb.Would tecommend a talk. Opens one...  more »

  • An amazing place, the biggest Roman palace in western Europe. The only place where Roman hedge beds and irrigation for them has been discovered and is in place now! Superb guide, Stewart, good shop and cafe cum quick bite restaurant on site.
  • Roman Army Week was amazing. All the staff and helpers were brilliant. Everything was included and there was sooo much to do. Great week which the whole family enjoyed.
  • This place is fantastic and truly a jewel in terms of archaeological finds. For fans of history this is a must see - an initial video introduction is narrated by Tony Robinson and there are also guided tours which are taken in 2 parts. We got there a couple of hours before closing so while we rushed, we managed to get time for one of the guides and I highly recommend you do the same - the guide was extremely knowledgeable, and explained everything in plain English and told us a lot more about the area and the remains than we would've known otherwise. The dolphin mosaic is as impressive as you've been told, do not miss it!
  • Excellent place to take the kids when they do their Roman theme in primary school. Guided talk at 12.30am was great. Museum small, but interesting, and lots of child focussed bits.
  • Been visiting for years and it always fascinates me! The scale of the palace and the mosaic floor remains is impressive. Really well put together exhibition and museum alongside. Perhaps not as interactive for young visitors as it might be and could do with a little modernising in places... but the star of the show are the remains of the palace floors.
