February Half Term at Fishbourne Roman Palace

February Half Term at Fishbourne Roman Palace will offer plenty for families looking for a great day out in Sussex.

The Palace, which is the largest Roman home in the UK, is hosting Live Like a Roman week. This week-long programme of activities will explore what life was like 2,000-years-ago.

From arts and crafts to dressing up and games, there’s plenty for families of all ages to enjoy this February Half Term.

Activities cost just £1 per child in addition to general admission.

Visitors can also marvel at the 2,000-year-old mosaics, which are the largest and finest collection of in-situ Roman floors in the country.

Plus, they can explore the museum featuring items found on the site by archaeologists when it was discovered in 1960.
