A must visit for anyone travelling anywhere near Fishbourne. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable in the ruins. Here you can discover layers of Roman history in the area. Allow 2 hours if you are a history buff.

I live locally to the Roman palace and have visited a few times over the years,most recently was last year.It’s a charming place with lots of things to see and do for history buffs,and of course the mosaics and bones etc that are on show are a real draw.The Gardens are fairly small but nice to walk round and the shop and cafe are both quite sweet.I wouldn’t particularly recommend for families except during school holidays when they have events for children,otherwise it could become boring for children quite quickly.My daughter was 5 when we visited last year and she liked it for about half an hour (her favourite part was designing her own mosaic picture) but other than that she found is pretty boring,which is understandable for a young child with little to no interest in history!For adults though this is a nice way to spend a couple of hours.I’d like to suggest that a home education reduced child ticket price be made available as this would be an excellent educational visit for older children,but I found the child ticket price quite expensive

First visit and really enjoyed it. Helpful team and enjoyable tour. Interesting facts. Great place and I learned a lot about the Romans and their way of life. Will take the family for a visit next time.

there is a wealth of information displayed that is easy to understand and demonstrates how little building techniques have changed in 2000 years.
the only criticisms are that the lighting is all spotlights that make it difficult to obtain reasonable photographs and the café does not allow dogs
