The setting is perfect - a rocky coastline, a scenic village and then, you see the mountain. If the tide is out, walk to St. Michaels, if the tide is in, take a small boat. Either way, be sure to go!

What a fantastic place. The first time we went, there was a bit of misty rain, but it did not detour from the time that we spent there. It is well worth the trip to visit this well kept site that is still lived in. even if the tide is in, you can still get across by boat. Great place... More

We walked the beach from Penzance just in time to cross the causeway. Then onto the island and up into the beautiful castle. The gardens were closed for the season but we could see them from the castle walls and they were beautiful. The village below was interesting, with free tour by residents to explain the history. The walk up... More

Our 5 and 2 year olds loved the boat trip over to the island. Great facilities for families with young children when we arrived. Lovely quiz for the children to do around the house. Plenty of helpful staff to answer any questions

What a magical place to visit arrived early when the tide was in so was able to enjoy a super breakfast at the Cadolphin Hotel overlooking the mount, by the time we had finished eating changed into some sturdy boots the water had receded enough for us to walk across the cause way. Only negative for us was the gardens... More

Worth a walk across the causeway (but watch the tides) to take a look at this ancient mount. NT run the site and there is a cafe for hot and cold drinks, ice creams etc and a restaurant. There are the tropical gardens and if open the castle and chapel to view at your leisure.

An excellent National Trust property to visit. Advice before going: Find out what the Tidal times are as you have to walk across the causeway to reach it. Park by the Godolphin pub £3-50 per day. Walk over causeway and smile at the people walking over in flip flops/sandals etc and squealing when the tide comes up over their footwear.... More

Have been waiting to visit St. Michael's Mount for over a year, due to hurricane in October 2013. Was not disappointed, all members of the family found it very interesting ( including teenagers). As stated in title you will need a good pair of walking boots as the walk is steep and sometimes slippery, but take your time and all... More

We visited St Michael's Mount last Sunday morning and wanted to walk over by the causeway. The times for the causeway being open were displayed at the car park which is £3. It said 7:15 till 10:15. Be wary that if there is a swell these times are inaccurate. We tried crossing at 9:45 but could not get across so... More
