We had a lovely few hours after watching the tide go out while having breakfast, then walking over the causeway. The Castle, Old Priory and Chapel are beautifully preserved and full of interesting history.The walk up the Pilgrim's Path is quite steep. Wheel chair access is only to the bottom of the island. The views are fabulous.

We planned our trip so we would be able to walk over the causeway and we had plenty of time to look around before we needed to leave again. The car park is well organised and there is plenty of parking available however you do have to pay to use it. There are free village tours available which are informative... More

If you are looking for a great day out as a couple or family, then this may be what you are looking for on Cornwall's South Coast. Dependant on the tides, your adventure may begin with a short ferry ride into the castle port from Marazion. Our day meant walking across the causeway (take trainers with you) before the climb...

My visit began with a wonderful walk along the causeway that can only be accessed when the tide is out. Luckily I was able to walk both ways. I began with the free village tour which was informative and a good introduction to the site. I then began the uphill walk to the castle. Be warned that the walk is... More

Visited in June 2015. St Michaels Mount is like a fairytale castle. To get here you have to go on a boat at high tide or walk across a causeway at low tide. The grounds are fairly steep and uneven at times but it is well worth the hike up to the top, the views out across mounts bay and... More

Absolutely beautiful place to visit, really enjoyed our trip. However, like most National Trust properties it's hugely expensive. The cost of the boat trip should be included in the entrance fee and should certainly be advertised before you get on the boat. It's true you can walk across at low tide but this doesn't necessarily allow you enough time on... More

Visited with partner, son and pet parrot (in a birdy backpack). Went during the tide so had to get the boat across. Really friendly captain who obviously enjoys his job. Bear in mind that it is possible to cross on the causeway when the tide is about to turn but there are strong currents so a slip off the walkway... More

Good car parking and a lovely day out.The children loved searching for the giant and the castle was very interesting.Very steep climb though,sensible shoes is essential but you will deserve a lovely Ice cream at the bottom!

We have visited St. Michaels Mount on a couple of occasions and each time we get to learn more about this fascinating house. We went at the end of June, and the tide was still covering the causeway, so we jumped into the boat that ferried you over to the harbour. There is a small fee of £2 per person,... More

If you wish to visit and walk over and back, be sure to time your visit with a tide chart! If you should get caught with high-tide, just know that there are 'ferries' available to transport you over and back. These small boats charge about 10 pounds, from what we were told. The area is just lovely - especially at... More
