A most interesting and well preserved castle with beautiful grounds. Time your visit with the tides so you can walk one way to the island when the tide is out and come back on one of the small ferries (£2 charge) Superb views all round the bay. Only downer was the cafe. We ordered ham sandwiches which came with bread... More

Beautiful island with a castle and interesting history. Take a free tour of the island as well as the paid tour of the castle. Tour guide Rob (who also lives on the island) was funny and entertaining. Find the tide schedules to walk there from downtown Marazion. We went twice including a 9:30 PM walk before closing. You can take... More

We only saw the stunning views of St David's Mount from Marazion, but they were worth reported in themselves - stunning, particularly in the evening with the full moon shining brightly above the illuminated castle, and casting a light on the sea that made the scene almost biblical! If you can't afford the time to make the crossing, then I... More

The castle and garden are undoubtedly the highlights of this attraction. However, this monument is also a great tribute to and a reminder of the great masons that were responsible for this wonderful engineering feat. The view over the bay and walkway from the castle is magnificent. Certainly a highlight of the manmade side of Cornwall.

On Monday 15 June 15, We parked out car in the car park at Marazion and then walked the historic causeway across to the castle as the tide was out. This iconic rocky island is crowned by a medieval church and castle and is home to the St Aubyn family, and has a 30 strong community of islanders. You can... More

We only visited the garden due to the limit the tide puts on your visit. It was a beautiful sunny day and they were some stunning flowers and plants. A fabulous setting

A magnificent day! Walking to the island across the causeway you are struck by the imposing and beautiful castle ahead of you. Staff on the island are friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. The gardens are breathtaking and well designed and the castle is well worth the walk. The chapel in particular is very atmospheric with beautiful stained glass and organ. The... More
