Took the amphibious vehicle across as the tide was too high to walk across the causeway, a great way to arrive. We did the afternoon tour and it proved very interesting and our guide was very informative. A magical place to visit and a great time to see it out of season, I definitely would not like to visit in... More

We visited St Michaels mount in february 2015. There is a causeway across which you can go across to get to the mount on low tide (there are tide times online). or go on a boat during high tides (2 pounds pp) We walked across, amazing views along the lenght of the bay and the mount infront of us. You... More

Great attraction with stunning views of the surrounding bay and Penzance. The castle itself is brilliant too. The only downside was the £2 per way charge for the ferry crossing.

Visually amazing! Pick the properly and walk the causeway across. It's worth it put you're feet in the Altantic Ocean. Being Australian we don't get may oppotunities. The grounds and the caslte are well maintained and worth the entarunce fee. Plenty of staff to help and are very friendly. A steep walk to the castle but try and do it.... More

We took our daughter and her friend here for the day. They loved it! The car/lorry boat over was heaps of fun. They ran around the harbour and enjoyed the very windy weather. They even enjoyed the Castle. Happy holidays!

We managed to fluke the week of the mid term holidays so the Castle was open. We walked out at low tide to the island and the cost was excellent, for a family of 6 it was £24! The hike up the path you can take at your leisure but it it is steep and we had someone with a... More

A real wonder. How or why would anybody choose to live here? How practical is it and what are the limitations? We enjoyed walking across the causeway and exploring the tiny village in February but can imagine it being an uncomfortable touristy location in high season. Lovely cakes and cream teas with excellent coffee in the cafe, although outside seating... More

This was my second trip to the mount. The last time they did not have the amphibous (sp) to take you over when the causeway is under water. Great way to develop an appreciation for that time in history. Guides are very helpful and friendly. View from the top is breathtaking. Worth the time!

Visited on Saturday 15th February. Gorgeous day made better by being able to get a good shot (or 20!) of the Mount. Ate at a little pub just up from the causeway. Easy parking and not too expensive
