A wonderful place to visit with the castle and gardens both worth seeing. The walk across the causeway is not too taxing although as it's cobbles perhaps not too easy for those with shaky legs. The castle tells a lovely story of the link between family & castle going back hundreds of years but for me I would have enjoyed a little more detail - nothing was said about St Michael's appearing on the mount (apparently how it got it's name) or about the earlier monastic inhabitants. What is there is fascinating, but I believe it could be even more so.

Fantastic place to visit - be prepared for a bit of a hike uphill on very cobbled stones so wear walking boots. Views at the top are amazing.

Sail loft restaurant, an absolute treat just to sit in the sun, and then wander down to the little harbour

A Cornish treasure cared for by the fantastic National Trust. Just a credit to a great institution. Amazing 360 degree views, paradise for anyone with a camera. I live within ten miles but still visit at least once a year. Our daughter sung with a visiting school choir in the chapel. The staff were very accommodating it made a memory of a lifetime.

the ferry trip was brilliant, we went into the tea rooms and had a lovely cream tea. We didn't go into the actual building but opted to go around the gardens omg! they were stunning lots of tropical plants and rocks and walls festooned with sweet smelling flowers. The only problem would be if you were unsteady underfoot or unable to climb some steps. the large imposing building looked fabulous
