I've wanted to visit St Michael's Mount for a long time. There's something romantic about a castle perched on an island, surrounded on all sides by water and only accessible at low tide along a narrow causeway. It makes a great photographic subject too 🙂 We arrived at high tide and had to wait a while for the causeway to... More

The car park we parked in charged £3.50 for the day which I thought very reasonable. We took a slow walk down to the causeway where we went to get to St. Michaels Mount. (It was low tide ) I understand you can take a boat at other times. The causeway its self is mainly large stones and cobbles, so... More

Good little gift shop, although we visited late in day it was a super place to visit and we had a lot of fun crossing the causeway as the tide had turned - not in a dangerous way though! Would definitely make a return trip and stay a little longer.

Somewhere I've always wanted to visit and I wasn't disappointed. The visitor must be aware of the tide times, but boats run when the causeway is covered. We went out in the morning by boat and spent a lovely day here. Steep climb up to the castle, over irregular laid large pebbles. Superb views once here. The castle was very... More

St Michaels Mount its very intresting attraction. Very crowded even though weve been there by end of september. Close buy car park not that big and overflowing very quickly. Next car park is about 1 km of the marazion itslef. We had to park there but we had nice hike on the beach to the mount. Make sure its a... More

We needed more info on the history rather than the items on display. Had to google when we got home to find out, such a shame this isn't included. Also not enough of it was open for the price we paid, understand its a home but it shouldn't be that price if you haven't got that much to show.

Thank you for this review of your recent visit to St Michael’s Mount. I’m sorry you felt we did not provide you with enough of the historical information relating to the island. We do try to give as much information as we can, through printed text which is given to every visitor and the room sheets throughout the castle, which... More

Absolutely spectactular. Highly recommend visiting this charming place. Take a boat trip over but most definitely plan a walk over the causeway.

We spent a whole day on the mount. It was £2 each way per person by boat as when we arrived it was high tide. There is 3 cars, one as you drive into the town, one in the middle (which is where most people park) and one near the courseway. Prices go higher as you drive into the town.... More

We went over on a little boat as the tide was in (it was only £2 each) and it was pleasant. The castle is great to visit, there's a lovely cafe, tidy toilets and a quaint gift shop. It was a nice sunny day which always helps. We had a great time.

Well worth a visit. The castle itself is very interesting and there's an explanatory printed guide in each room in addition to staff who can give more information if required. The views from the top are spectacular (even though when we went it was tipping down and blowing a gale!) and the gardens are beautiful. If the weather is good... More
