Fishbourne Roman Palace

About

The remains of the largest domestic Roman building in Britain is displayed inside a cover building, with many impressive mosaic floors, underfloor heating systems, corridors and courtyards. The story of the site is told in an audio-visual programme using computer generated imagery.

The museum gallery tells the history of the site and displays many artefacts found during excavations of the site. Outside, the formal garden has been re-planted to its original plan, based on excavated bedding trenches. This is supplemented by a plant display area and museum of Roman gardens.

The Collections Discovery Centre offers visitors the chance to look behind the scenes into the conservation laboratory, sensitive and bulk stores, where the reserve archaeological collections of the Roman Palace are stored. Guided tours and artefacts handling sessions are offered on a daily basis.
