Lovely walking across the causeway when the tide was out and getting the boat back. Found it a bit of a hike to the top at my age but I made it and the views were worth the effort

Getting the boat across to St Michaels Mount then walking back as the tide changed was a dream come true. It was a lot of fun and I was amazed at the number of people who did it! The boat trip was short and the price not too extortionate. The big disappointment was that unless you're willing to fork out... More

Been a few times but in peak season it can get very busy and means you don't get to see all the history inside. Like others have said it is not disabled friendly but it is a mount. We had cream tea in the cafe which was nice. It's worth checking the tide times to check if it's a boat... More

One of my favourite memories as a kid was catching hermit crabs next to the causeway at St Michael's mount and here I was 30 years later doing it again! A wonderful, historic place. Spent an absolutely lovely sunny day wandering round. My only disappointment was that the gardens are only open on certain days and unluckily we didn't realise... More

We visited St Michaels Mount and were blown away by it. It really is a marvellous place to visit. We got a boat over to it and was able to walk back to the beach as the tide went out. Inside there were lots of interesting things to see and the views were breathtaking. My only tiny gripe is that... More

Great day out. Absolutely beautiful place to visit with stunning views. The walk up to the castle was a little steep in places, but we have two young children and they coped very well

It was a total waste of a 400 mile journey to see. We queued in pouring rain to board a boat across to the mount as the tide was in, my cousin is disabled an on sticks with a dodgy hip due to her ex husband using her as a punchbag when she was married. The young boat crew announced... More

We timed our visit to perfection, we arrived just as the tide was out and the causeway was visible. Leisurely walk across the causeway to St. Michael's Mount. Very interesting walk around the small island, unfortunately we arrive too late to complete a tour around the castle but we have it on good authority that it is well worth it.... More

Just stunning outside, took sooo many photos :) had to take the ferry across to the mount as it was a 'weird day' according to the national trust lady where the tides were not out at their usual times. nice cream teas over there too
