Fishbourne Roman Palace and Gardens

Fishbourne Roman Palace

Fishbourne was the largest home in Roman Britain and the house and grounds remain a magnificent reminder of the Roman era. The garden is unique in that it uses the original 1st century AD bedding trenches for its flowers. The house boasts the largest collection of in situ Roman mosaic floors in Britain. There is also the opportunity to visit the Collection Discovery Centre, a chance to go behind the scenes and discover more about archaeology.

The site offers workshops for most ages, including Celts and Romans, and exploration of the differences between Celt and Roman artefacts using model making, design and costumes. Another fascinating and hands-on workshop is Domestic Life, which uses role play in the 'Roman Kitchen' to discover how the Romans lived and ate. The site also offers follow up boxes for the classroom.
