Magical walk and excellent visitor centre ( despite castle and grounds being closed)

This was our second attempt to walk across the causeway - last time tide was still covering it. Lovely cold sunny day. We knew the castle and grounds were closed but the visitor... read more

This was our second attempt to walk across the causeway - last time tide was still covering it. Lovely cold sunny day. We knew the castle and grounds were closed but the visitor centre was open and the information and film very informative and we gained a good sense of the history. Will certainly be back when it is fully... More

We had beautiful weather the day we decided to go to St. Michael's Mount. We took one of the ferries out to the Mount and walked around the base. It was pretty crowded the day we went, but it's easy to get around. We hiked up the paths to the cannons. There are great views from this point. I was... More

We holidayed in Marazion in November so St Michaels mount became the stunning back drop to the majority of our holiday photographs. It certainly is a sight to behold and I never got bored of seeing the same view especially at sunrise and sunset. Sadly the view of the mount is the only thing I can praise. We decided to... More

Amazing to watch the tide go out and the causeway to be revealed then to walk across it onto St Michael's Mount Note, check that the castle is open before visiting and make sure you get back before the tide comes in! Keep and eye on children and yourself as the walk can be a bit slippery sometimes

Looks stunning. We were unable to walk out to visit the castle as it was closed over the holidays but I have visited before and it is such a beautiful place.

Great walk across the causeway over to st Michaels mount. No cafes open as nye but just a quick visit before tide came in and back to Marazion for coffee. Such an amazing place well worth a visit at any time of year.

Enchanting castle at the top of the mountain surrounded by water. Make sure you check the tide times to walk along the path that brings to the island. Available parking very close.

We love ❤ St Michael's Mount, whether you get to walk over the causeway or have to take a ferry just to set foot on the Mount is a magical experience. You have to pay for access to the gardens and the house. The walk around the grounds is lovely, wonderful big lawns up to the waters edge. You'll get... More

We crossed the causeway - in both directions - and walked around the dog-friendly areas on the island which were well-pointed out to us. Dogs are not allowed in the castle grounds or the castle, but can walk around enough on a lead, before returning to the beach for a good run!
