Having visited some very famous roman sites throughout Italy and elsewhere in Europe, we were stunned to see so many magnificent mosaic floors right here in Sussex. It’s worth joining a guided tour if possible. Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable about the mosaics on...More

I've visited a number of roman sites accross Europe. The mosaics here are all in situ and mostly very special. I just felt the entry price was pretty steep. Perhaps I'm influenced by the Roman sites in Caerleon, Caerwent and the mosaics in Newport museum,...More

The ruins of the villa and the floor mosaics, and the museum, are all inside. There are also gardens with a few ruins in, which are not undercover.
