Today we headed out towards the coast near Chichester east of Southampton and enjoyed a walk along Chichester Harbour. It was a lovely morning but the weather forecast was for rain later in the day. So we enjoyed our walk while it was fine.

After our walk and lunch we headed towards Chichester, by this time the rain had started. We decided to head to the Fishbourne Roman Palace out of curiosity. What we discovered were the Roman remains of what was believed to be a huge palace the size of Buckingham Palace. The palace was unearthed when work for a new mains water pipe was being undertaken. Excavation unearthed magnificent mosaic floors, remains of walls and some amazing artifacts. We were just in time for the guided tour of the Roman remains our amusing guide telling the history of the palace and its discovery. An interesting visit.
