Walking across to the Mount at low tide is a lovely way to appreciate this former monastery. We went on a blustery morning and the NT part of the Mount was shut but you are still able to wander round the harbour and out buildings.

We all had a lovely time here, great views (even on a grey day!) and a good long walk around the mount and up the castle.

What an AMAZING sight to greet us at the end of a long cycle day. Superb. Took my breath away. We enjoyed icecream watching the view change before continuing. While entry into Marazion is on road, from here it is cyclepath over to Penzance.

seeing that beautiful island in the distance with its majestic castle standing proud, getting a boat there feels like you're in an adventure book. Once you get there you're treated to stunning surroundings and dizzying views with the opportunity to peruse inside the castle and learn about its history. It makes for a great day out for the family and... More

Better when open! No facilities in winter months. Breath taking views. Nice walk if not a bit breezy. No boat available in winter months.

Wind, rain and cold. This town and the Mount are magical even on a awful day. We keep returning just to stand on the beach and take photo's

Check the tide times, we caught the boat and its worth it, very high winds the day we went but lots of uneven and slippy cobble to get around. but once inside the tour is good and knowledgeable. excellent views and ideal for nature.
