Fishbourne Roman Palace & Gardens

Welcome to the largest Roman home in Britain

Imagine the luxury that would once have surrounded the proud owner of this lavish Roman residence. This palace was certainly fit for a king. Stroll around the recreated Roman gardens – the earliest gardens found anywhere in the country – and enjoy the largest collection of mosaics in situ in the UK.

During January, the site and cafe will be open on Saturdays and Sundays only from 10am – 4pm.  During this time the Café will be serving a reduced menu of soup, a selection of cakes, crisps, and hot and cold drinks.

Please note: until 19th January there will be on-going maintenance works in the North wing.  As a result, visitors will find that there is a restricted view of some of the archaeological remains.
