Four-legged friends at Fishbourne
Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the gardens and cafe at Fishbourne Roman Palace. However, due to the historic nature of the site, we do not allow them into the indoor museum, exhibition space and Collection Discovery Centre.
We ask that you keep dogs on short leads at all times.
Assistance dogs are – of course – welcome across the whole site.
