Time your visit for low tide if possible as it's a great approach walking across the causeway to the Mount. Steep walk up to the house but rewarded with great views of the whole bay. National Trust volunteers friendly and informative. Shop and cafe not run by NT.

Everyone talks about Land's End but that's not all this spectacular coastline offers. If I did nothing else in my week in Cornwall, to spend the morning at The Minack and then visit St Michael's Mount in the afternoon with Land's End in between...well it really is a day to remember. We planned our visit around the tides to walk... More

We had a great day out here. Can't really comment on value for money as we are National trust members and therefore it was free. The house is fantastic and the volunteers really suit the style of the house. Think they must all have been on holiday jobs from Eton. Fantastic. Lots to see and loads of interested. One word...

Travelled there by amphibious vehicle and. Walked back at low tide. Lovely experience. Steep climb up to the home on top, but well worth the effort. The buildings are of various ages from 17C to date, all in lovely condition. Lots to interest the whole family. All the usual NT facilities are available. Can be very windy on top so... More

We were in Wales when a friend in Australia suggested we go to St Michaels Mount and I'm so glad we did. Plenty of parking, catch a ferry for the 5min ride to the mount, from the shore the castle looks so regal sitting on top of the mount. Great day,I am in my late 40s,unfit but still managed the...

We could see St Michael's Mount from our rented holiday accommodation so had to go and visit.... it looked like something from an Enid Blyton book. The tide was in when we got there late afternoon so popped into the Godolphin Arms for a drink instead. Came back the following day and had a lovely stroll across the causeway. Its... More

First time in Cornwall we wanted to visit St Michael's Mount. Having walked across the causeway which was being repaired, we were greeted by a helpful man giving advice on where to go and what to see. The climb up to the castle is not for the faint hearted or those with walking difficulties but is definitely well worth the... More

Having wanted to visit here for a long time I grabbed the opportunity whilst visiting Cornwall. We walked across to St. Michael's and enjoyed the experience. There is a small walk around the bottom of the mount ( dogs are welcome in this area but not the gardens and castle). Certainly worth the trip, if you get the chance pay... More

Great place to visit. Enjoyed the walk over the causeway. Had a lovely lunch in the cafe and we weren't ripped off as one usually is in these sort of places. Didn't venture up to the castle as we had the dog with us unfortunately. All the staff were very friendly. Would definitely go back again!

The food in the selection of pubs here is excellent although the pub hotel right on the beach overlooking the mount I thought was very expensive.
