Fishbourne Roman Palace was discovered by accident during the digging of a water main trench in 1960. The discovery led to nine seasons of excavations that showed the site had developed from a military base at the time of the Roman invasion in AD43 to a sumptuous Palace by the end of the first century. Over the last five years, new excavations by the Sussex Archaeological Society have revealed exciting new insights into this development.

Throughout the year there are lots of exciting special events from Roman Soldiers to Baroque concerts. There are a wide range of facilities on site including cafe, car park and disabled access and it is easily reached by public or private transport. The Palace is open throughout the year.
