When it comes to that all important leisure time, you can walk to the internationally renowned Roman Palace, discovered in 1960 by accident during the digging of a water main. 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.
