I am a local so I know the area and tides well. For the first time we decided to take the boat back and fourth and it Was brilliant. Smooth ride. Polite service. Value for money. Plus the weather helps when it's sunny and warm.

We just walked to the island, but we didn't get the castle tour. It's very cool to walk on a path that is covered by the sea when the tide is high.

We parked in the Charity Car Park, as it was only a short walk from the Moan Car Parl, Causeway and the Boat. It was cheaper than the main car park. There was a little hut serving coffee and snacks etc. in the Main Car Park. The young lady who servied us was very nice and chatty. We took the... More

We travelled here with our 5 and 6 year old on an overcast by dry day and had great fun. The kids enjoyed watching the tide recede revealing the causeway that leads to the Mount. We only had time to visit the castle. The children's trail is well conceived and is able to keep the kids entertained, allowing the adults... More

The castle was well-presented and the church at the pinnacle of the mount was particularly historic and interesting. The garden climbed up the cliff on winding paths and contained an astounding variety of flowering stonecrops and other succulent plants which thrive in the mild and wet climate.

Despite using crutches due to fracture of the foot I managed to walk across the beach at low tide and complete the final journey over the cobbles. It was well worth it plus I was delighted to be able to use an electric scooter free of charge, for an hour or so to explore part of the gardens and the... More

What an amazing place. Exceeded all expectations. We took a small boat trip over, which cost us £2 one way. The walk up was not difficult but it is cobbled stone and walking shoes are a must. Apart from the most beautiful historic building and church located on the small rocky island, the views are spectacular. Well worth a visit... More

Note that tide times vary, especially on a windy day, but you should try to walk at least one way. The castle itself is impressive and there was a nice quiz for children where they had to find stuff in rooms and answer questions. Visit to the island itself is free if you walk both ways, but there is a... More

A breathtaking location hidden on the shores of the gorgeous town of Marazion. As a group of 3 friends, we decided to make a day of it and get the train from Plymouth to Penzance, a roughly 2 hour train ride, that in parts can seem quite drawn out, but is a beautiful journey and one I would recommend as...

Well worth the climb - fantastic gardens, lovely castle, lovely place for a picnic. So pleased we were able to walk across to the island. Can't wait to come back!
