We visited off-peak in early September so it was very quiet. We had come from the newly-disappointing Land's End so were only after some tranquility and enjoyable scenery - there's very little remaining at LE! Enjoyable walk between Marazion and the Mount itself, along a cobbled road that will disappear beneath the waves with the tide! Optional tractor/bus or boat... More

Awesome! But lots of people. That's pretty annoying. I love old buildings and history. Awesome to explore and crawl all over the rocks. I'm young and fit, so it was fine. But I went with my Mum, who has very bad knee and foot problems. It's a tough climb, that is very slippery. It WILL be hard if you are... More

The tide was coming in and we had to wade across the pathway very quickly. The free walking tour around the mount was very interesting

A truly magical place that should be on any visitor to Cornwall's list of must dos. It helps if the weather is perfect as was the case on my recent visit but nonetheless St Michael's Mount is a unique and special place to visit. The surrounding beach is fabulous and out of season dogs are permitted. I would recommend going... More

Everything about St. Michael's Mount was wonderful. The walk across the causeway, the village, the store, our guide Rachel and her stories, the castle, the chapel, the views, the history, the boat ride back. It's quite a hike up to the castle but well worth the effort.

Really loved this place, from the walk across the sea all the way to the top there is so much to see. The pathway up and down is steep and did trouble a few but just take your time and wear sensible shoes and you'll be fine. Once you see the views from the top you'll be truly amazed. You... More

Although I have visited the Mount several times before in summer when it was packed with visitors I had never before been in winter and found it to be a different experience altogether. We parked at the car park at Marazion, free at this time of year, and as the tide was out we walked over the causeway to the... More

The tour guide for the national trust was excellent. The castle is beautifully situated and the views are amazing.

An excellent way to spend your morning in another era, fascinating and beautifully cared for - lots of walking and wear sneakers as slippery if at all wet 😅 better if fine day as very windy at top, excellent facilities too
