Our family loves St Michaels Mount. Highlights were the walk/paddle across the causeway, the ice cream & the view from the top.

Very unique place to visit. We came during a rainy day and the view of St. Michael's Mount was still great! With the low tide we were able to walk to the castle and back with no problem. Definitely recommended if you are in the area!

This is the most wonderful, magical place. Surely one of the best on the planet. To stand at the top of the castle and take in the whole of Mount's Bay in a gentle sweep of the head is exhilarating. We have walked across the causeway before, but this year we got the boat back and the queue was perfectly... More

Must visit as a beautiful site to see - if you can you must walk across when the tide is out. Great fun for kids too. Would recommend checking tide times prior to leaving. Only disappointing thing is that the castle wasn't open second year in a row which was a big shame - let's hope it will be next... More

First time ever been here. Took a little boat across to the castle b4 the tide went out , very cheap to do so. Walked up to the castle all around and took loads of photos. Fairly enjoyed it. Once tide was out when we were ready to leave we just walked back across the path which took no time... More

Wonderful place to visit, especially if you are a National Trust member as entrance is free. Worth going on a day when the gardens are open so check the website. Take a picnic and check tide times on the website also as at least one way will need to be by boat rather than by foot over the causeway. The... More

The weather this week has been pretty poor. Lots of Wind and Rain. So very hopeful for a great day out when the sun came out. St Michaels Mount boat service had been closed for two days this week so naturally the day we visited was really busy . We queued for 45 mins to get a boat across which... More

Thank you for submitting this review of your recent visit. I’m sorry that your experience was not a wholly positive one. The day of your visit was the busiest day we have experienced on the island but this does not excuse the abrupt nature of the staff member in question and I am very sorry that you did not receive...
