Discover Roman Chichester: The Novium Museum to Fishbourne Roman Palace Walk

Wed 31 May - Sat 3 Jun

Meeting at the Novium Museum, you’ll embark on a walk through ancient times, ending at Fishbourne Roman Palace.

Chichester was established by the Romans more than 2000 years ago as ‘Noviomagus Reginorum’. Join us for a walk around some of the key Roman sites in and around the city and find out more about what life was like in Roman Chichester. Discover more about the public Bath house, the walls and temples, ending the walk at Fishbourne Roman Palace, the largest Roman home this side of the Alps. Marvel at the world-famous mosaic collection and relax in the Palace’s recreated Roman gardens.

This walk will be led by Sue Webber, an experienced walk leader for GoTread, Butser Ancient Farm and the South Downs National Park, currently working as an Education Officer at Fishbourne Roman Palace.
