We were told about this island and immediately added it to our list of places to visit during our days in Cornwall. I had read so much about it, I had seen pictures.. but living it was much more than what I expected. We had checked the tide times on their website but for some reason they were wrong, and... More

Located about 10 miles from Penzance in Cornwall ( Marazion beach) To get to St Michaels Mount - you either have to go across the causway at low tide or pay to get a boat over -its not expensive. It doesn't run every day. Once over you pay to go in -this is quite expensive. It was very interesting -little... More

The site of St/ Micheal's Mount, like a jewel in the sea, beckons from afar calling you to visit. You will not be disappointed.

This island is connected to the mainland by a causeway, which you can walk over at low tide. Otherwise you need to catch a ferry to the island. A useful sign at the beginning of the walkway tells you when the causeway is impassable on foot, which is especially important when the ferry isn't running! On a Saturday, the day... More

I had a wonderful time on the boat out to the site, walking up the hill surrounded by beautiful gardens, and then enjoying the view from the top of this magnificent attraction. The staff were informative but unobtrusive and the castle was interesting to explore. In particular, it felt more authentic than some which appear to be more a setting... More

Wow, what a lovely place. I wish I could live on an island like that! I walked across the causeway to get there which was really nice. I went on a guided tour to see the castle, our guide was Sonja and the tour lasted about 90 minutes. It was well worth the money. The castle is fascinating and the... More

We parked on the southern approach to town, and though it was late summer and lots of people around we got parking quite easy. The tide was in when we arrived so we went down the road to the slipway near Godolphin arms to get the ferry. They run the short trip every 10 minutes or so in the summer... More

Good fun getting over on the amphibious ferry. The house was fascinating. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Being winter the gardens were closed.Views of the bay breathtaking. Highly recommended.

I have been to Cornwall on many occasions but never visited St Michaels Mount. Really a must, from the quirky transport mode over to the harbour, the breathtaking views from all around the castle walls and the really interesting facts delivered with passion by the staff in the castle. Take a camera, I did not!
