This is a historic gem located in a unique setting. Accessible at low tide by a walk across a causeway, a boat trip is necessary when the tide comes in. Although there are many steps and cobblestone walkway that could be problematic for those with some disability, it is very worthwhile if you are able bodied. An interesting part of... More

We stayed in Penzance and took a trip to Marazion and St Michaels Mount. As the tide was in when we arrived in Marazion we took the boat across to the Mount which was very efficient and was not expensive. It's only a 5 minute trip across. We walked to the top and had a wonderful visit in the house.... More

If you don't mind the cost it was a cool place to see and explore. I would pick either the gardens or the castle rather than both but be prepared to walk up some steep hills!

A walk accross the causeway is magical in itself. The castle and its grounds are breathtaking and really spiritual in own way. Pasties overlooking the bay in the restaraunt make the day a Cornish experience

We are members of the NT so no cost involved in going up the mount which despite many visits is still brilliant, especially on a beautiful summer day. We love going over one way by boat and returning via the causeway or vice versa.

Having seen it on TV, we finally managed to time our visit to match the tides and the opening hours. The boat is a good alternative but it is actually a very pleasant and unique walk across the Causeway to the Mount. The building is fascinating with amazing views across the bay. It is a steep walk up to the... More

St Michaels Mount is a "must visit" for anyone travelling to Cornwall. We waited for the tide to go out so that we could walk along the causeway to the Mount although we could have got to the Mount by water taxi. Once there the steady climb up to the castle was well worth the effort, the views from the... More

If you wondered why the National Trust exists just visit the Mount and you will become a committed member overnight. Words cannot capture the wonder of this remote and enchanted place - just go for yourself and create your own memories. Tip: pay the full entry price and remember to visits the gardens and not just the castle. Take a... More

We sadly missed the opportunity to walk the causeway (we'd have got more than wet feet!) but took the boat across, which was nice in itself. It wasn't something we'd planned but are so glad we did this and spent several hours going around the Mount and made sure we went inside the beautiful house and castle. Some great history... More

What can I say you have to go here..a short boat ride from marazion (2 quid each way I might add) or if the tides out far enough you can take the coastel path which is a lot of fun you might get a bit wet about halfway across so suggest you take the path back after visiting the castle.stunnin...
