Annoyingly enough, the island is closed on Saturdays ... And yes, it is indicated on the website, but only when you go on the opening times, I think it should be more clearly indicated as we really wanted to visit and we drove 200 miles just for St Michael's Mount. Anyway, we will be back some other time :)

When you go on a trip, some days are dust and some days are diamonds. This one was a bright shiny diamond. It was all helped by blue sky (but still a cool wind), a low tide walk across the cobbled path as if walking seeking refuge in a fortress and all kinds of rock constructions so you can play... More

This is considered one of the "must see" attractions of Cornwall and it's not difficult to see why. As you drive down into the town you get your first sight of this arresting castle, just off the mainland shore. You can park in a large paying car park several hundred yards away (it's not cheap but parking rarely is these... More

We travelled from the midlands and got here before the concourse was clear of water!! Instantly I thought WOW! We waited on the concourse until all the water had receded and then began our adventure on the island, it was certainly worth the wait. The steep rocky slope is not for the faint hearted, and would be near on impossible... More

I think the weather helped, but it was a lovely day and we strolled across the causeway. Take care though, it is uneven - think of a badly cobbled street - but it is battered by the tide twice a day so you can't expect it to be pristine. Lovely little village albeit the captive audience pricing policy was in... More

We went to the Cornualles and visited several wonderful places. One of the top was St. Michael's Mount at Mounts Bay, where the famous Penzance town lies at one extreme at the Mariazon small town at the other. The Castle on top of the Mount is an extraordinary place kept by the St Aubyn family for generation. You have to... More

Nothing to dislike really, as a wonderful National trust property run very well. It is closed all day on Saturdays, which does come as a surprise to people.

Loved the small boat ride across the bay to the National Trust site of St Michaels Mount. found the climb to the stately home at the top of the mount quite difficult as both myself and my husband have mobility problems, took lots of rest en-route, and once we were at the top we appreciated the views all around the...

We visited as a family as I had always wanted to go, and the island was even more beautiful than I had imagined! It was extremely busy however as it was a hot day in august. The walk up to the castle is gorgeous, but treacherous with uneven slippery cobbles on a steep hill. The queue to get in the... More
