I love St Michael's Mount. It was really magical. My husband and I took our young sons for a visit. They were really excited and got caught up in the Giants story. We parked in a car park nearest to the causeway. I forget what it was called, but I thought the price was very reasonable. We paid £3.50 for... More

St Michaels Mount is a very scenic location - and to get the best of this try to go on a clear and dry day. The castle is open (except Saturdays) - and is a typical National Trust property, with lots of slightly disconected items on display, in a fantastic old building. I would have liked to have seen more... More

If you are visiting West Cornwall, you must visit St Michael's Mount. However, make sure you get there when the tide is either going out or at low tide so you can walk the causeway. There are boats that will take you to the Mount, but they charge £2 for a 200m trip and that's only one way!!!

Enjoyed the boat ride to the castle, would b good to time it with low tide to enjoy the causeway. Beautiful setting, spectacular views, well worth a visit.

Home of legends,priest holes and giants, tidal rushes, beautiful gardens that climb up the side of the cliff face with views of the castle touching the heavens above, grassed areas storm lashed rocks and tiny fishing boats that act as ferries when the tide covers the causeway leaving from St Michaels Mount harbour sneaking their way to the jettys through...

This is a lovely place to visit. Lots of history and great scenery. If you can visit when the tide is out it is cheaper as there is a causeway, if not the boat costs £2pp each way. Lots of steps and uneven ground up to the castle which is NT and costs about £10pp but you can just visit... More

We had a family trip to St Michaels Mount, having visited it's "sister site" Mont St Michel a few years ago. We arrived whilst the boats were still running, so went over by boat and came back on the causeway. The children were fascinated by the house and completed the children's quiz to get a little medal. The house was... More

We really enjoyed our visit to St Michaels Mount. Walking across the cobbled causeway was fun and the cobbled path up to the summit if the mount a challenge! Worth it for the views from the top. We enjoyed the tour of the house and the history of it. Room stewards all very helpful and knowledgable. We had lunch at... More

Absolutely beautiful part of the country, shame we missed the dolphins in the morning! Incredibly knowledgeable guides who under the circumstances (too many visitors brought across on the boat at once!) coped incredibly well and kept everyone engaged and happy. Very good at their job and well trained in the history of such a lovely attraction. Fascinating and a brilliant... More
