We were very luck with the weather for our visit, we pre-booked our tickets and arrived just as the sea was receding from the causeway. We had tickets for the castle - it was a shame you couldn’t book for both the gardens and castle in one ticket. Great one way system and a few steep parts to get up but nothing too strenuous! The views were amazing. So much history. Not over crowded. The staff gave lots of information. Highly recommend!

It is a wonderful sight to see St Michael’s Mount - something for all of us to enjoy from the coast. We had prebooked castle tickets and arrived a few minutes before our allotted time. What we had not reckoned for was that the nearest car park was full, the overflow car park was full and so we went directed to the overflow to the overflow. By the time we parked and walked the mile or so to the island we were 30 minutes late for our slot. Furthermore we had my 83 year old mother with me. We all made it and the staff were friendly and ignored our late arrival - so all was well in the end but it was a bit stressful. The other irritating thing is that I thought I had bought a ticket to the castle and garden. But seemingly not. I should have bought a separate one for the garden - so we were not permitted into the garden. At a minimum this is not at all clear on the website. I would also say it feels like profiteering. Overall I am most surprised that on a weekday at the end of September Cornwall remains completely packed out. Attractions, pubs and whole towns (eg St Ives)are completely full. If you have not booked everything in advance then you will probably be eating at your last choice of restaurant. I question how much of a pleasure it is to be part of that. Maybe time to take a break somewhere less obvious.

Although we couldn't visit the Hall, we enjoyed exploring the beautiful terraced gardens and buying one or two items from the gift shops.

enjoyable day however not quite up to expectations of a castle visit. there is very little information attached to the exhibits within the castle albeit a number of rooms have guides to talk to. you do need to ask them though. social distancing within the castle and especially queuing to get in was not great ( masks though are worn) . if you want to see the gardens you need to make sure that you have obtained both tickets. nice to walk along the causeway and the island is very pretty with some good views. overall a nice day out just not spectacular in our opinion.

It’s just not a place of any interest. The causeway leading up to the place is pretty cool to see (because it’s only accessible at low tide) if your passing by. They were charging disgusting prices to go inside to the gardens and to see the castle - I didn’t waste my money of course, but even from the outside it looked like a standard little village you can pass through anywhere in the uk. Certainly shouldn’t be a point of interest at all. Lots of things to do in Cornwall - this isn’t one.
