Fishbourne Roman Palace (Fishbourne)

Fishbourne Roman Palace is a famous and historic attraction at Fishbourne in Sussex.

It is situated in Salthill Road, a few minutes walk from Fishbourne Station.

The palace was built for Cogidubnus, King of the Regni, who was happy to co-operate with the Romans. It is the largest Roman residence yet discovered North of the Alps.

Its destruction in the 3rd century was caused by fire.

In 1960, the extensive remains were discovered, and are now on show to the public.

The stunning Roman mosaics may be viewed, and there is a garden, which has been planted with the herbs and flowers that would have been grown in the Roman period.

The Roman Palace is now in the care of English Heritage.
