Join us at Fishbourne Roman Palace on July 30th and 31st for a fun-packed family-friendly weekend featuring the soldiers of the Ermine Street Guard.

Since its formation 50 years ago, the Guard has become the leading society studying the Roman Army and its equipment.

Their public display will take you back to 2,000-years-ago when the Roman Empire stretched from Britain across to Persia.

The displays include aspects of the Roman soldier’s training, the shooting of artillery pieces, and a static army camp display.

A range of Roman-themed activities will also be on offer throughout the day – as well as the opportunity to explore the magnificent mosaics and recreated grounds that formed part of Fishbourne Roman Palace.

Due to this being an extremely popular event, pre-booking is recommended to guarantee your tickets. On-the-day entry will be limited and cost more.

Note: entry to this event and the Palace site is by ticket only. No special offers will be accepted. Free entry for members of The Sussex Archaeological Society does not apply on this weekend.
