The views from here on a clear day are outstanding. Some of the best I've seen. You can go over to the mount and not pay for anything (castle or gardens). My advice would be to that as its a lovely lace to visit. The attractions cost £14 for both and neither can be accessed if you aren't able bodied... More

A very pleasant walk across the causeway at low tide but limited access on a Saturday. Not only is the castle and gardens closed but also the cafe and shop. The causeway is being repaired in parts which might make it harder for people with push chairs. No boats either on a Saturday and the only accurate information on the... More

Great combination of castle & history then lovely gardens to walk around. Steep climb to get up to the castle but really interesting things to see. The view of the gardens below shouldn't be missed. You get a sense of the family who run the place. Gardens are around the base of the castle and were a huge surprise. There... More

A perfect day out, we arrived in Marazion to a well manned car park, and trotted over the sand and causeway to reach the Mount. After a spot of lunch at the Sail Loft (lovely food) we toured the castle itself, the tour is really interesting the leaflet supplied offers a great insight into the rooms you're viewing. The gardens... More

Five and a half hours we spent here, from walking along the pier to board the ferry to go over, to walking back along the causeway. After a stop for coffee we went into the gardens which we spent the best part of two hours exploring. It was a sunny spring day and there were many superb plants in flower,... More

The tide was out so we walked from the expensive car park at Marazion (not NT). The route up to the property is of course steep and the surface is uneven, wished I had had my walking boots on. The house is interesting, surprisingly domestic and some great views. For me the gardens were the highlight but again you need... More

This is an awesome place to visit. If you want to make the experience even better make sure the tide is out. This way you can walk from the main land to St Michael's Mount on an old cobbled pathway across the beach. The place is just unbelievable and great for photo opportunities.

Have given an average rating due to the beauty of the area, and setting. However as soon as we arrived in the car park the jobsworth attendant was trying to make us park so close to other cars that we couldn't get out of ours. When I pointed this out he relented slightly then got the next car to park... More

I’m sorry that your recent visit did not meet your expectations. Your comments have been heard and if I may explain a liitle further regarding your areas of concern... I would particularly like to assure that there is no ‘ploy’ to get visitors to pay the ferryman. The causeway is currently undergoing an essential repair program to rebuild the pathway... More

Walked to the island at low tide. We were disappointed with the restaurant as all the dishes we ordered were finished as we arrived in mid afternoon. The castle was most interesting. Informative and friendly guides were in most of the rooms which made our visit more enjoyable. Beautiful views of Marazion and the gardens of the castle. So pleased... More
