Check your computer for the tides of the day you want to go, the day before. That way you won't be disappointed by not being able to walk all the way across to the castle at low tide. Yes, you can take a ferry but think of the awesome fotos you can get by walking! Cute little Cornish town of... More

A national trust property at its best. A beautiful location, castle and location. Be warned - you will have to walk on an uneven cobbled causeway and then climb to the castle up a far more uneven stone pathway. The cafe/restaurant was extremely well run and offered a good , value for money selection.

I had no idea that one of my favourite films, Twelfth Night, was filmed here and this was an added joy to the day. What a beautiful place this is! We approached by boat and walked back on the causeway. The castle itself was interesting and beautiful with stunning views of the coast all around. Highlight of my Cornish holiday!

we got the local bus from Penzance and went at low tide so we were able to walk across the causeway It is a very popular spot and enjoyable just to have a wander round and drink something while sitting in the garden We didn't actually go up into the monastery as we thought it was rather expensive

Myself and the family had a wonderful day at St Michael's Mount. It was a real experience to walk across the causeway to the site and then make our way up to the castle via the cobbled streets. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the shops were well stocked and interesting. The children were catered for with... More

Wow! This is an excellent place to visit. We liked it so much we joined the National Trust on site! The boat trip over was exciting for the kids. They loved the story of the giant and mum and dad found the castle quiz to be sufficiently challenging! Before we left we ate in the Café - ask for chips,... More

Fantastic looking island and really interesting history, but unfortunately quite expensive for a group or family.

Popped here for a short visit last week, have visited in the past on several occasions and is time didn't disappoint. This was the first time we had to reach the castle by boat because of the tide and it was a quick journey with no problems, if not a little expensive as you couldn't get a return ticket. Having...

Walking along the causeway at low tide is part of the adventure then up the rugged steps to the Castle/Church at the top. Great NT place to visit
