We visited here on 23/05/17. Got there earlyish and parked up and had a walk across the causeway. The walk up to the castle was a bit treacherous given that it is a cobbled path, I really wish I'd put my walking boots on. The castle is well maintained and steeped in history with fantastic views from every window. The... More

As the tide was in, we were unable to use the walkway but the boats are only £2 each way, the entrance fee £9.95 each, so it is relatively cheap. (Tickets for castle/gardens can not be bought before 1030). It was worth the walk to the top although do take sensible shoes - some American tourists we met were wearing... More

Don't be fooled by the costly boat trips. It costs £2 each way to get to The Mount from the mainland (Marazion) and then its free to walk around with if you're a National Trust member. Such a beautiful place to walk around and the views of stunning. Be sure to go on a sunny day. And if the tides... More

Great place to visit for everyone. If the Tides out walk across the jetty to enjoy the approach up or take the boat when the Tides in. The gardens are beautiful but are only open at certain times so plan you're trip if you wish to view them. The whole place is well worth a visit.

Checked on the time of the tides so were able to walk out on the causeway and travelled back by boat at a cost of £2.00. Much more to see and experience than I imagined. Lots of history and the climb to the top is well worth it. The guides are really knowledgeable and friendly.

St Michael's mount is an experience not to be missed! We walked across the causeway at low tide and took the ferry (£2.00) several hours later. We decided to visit the castle first before it got too full. It's quite a climb but there is so much to look at that it is well worth the effort. As National Trust... More

Enjoyed looking around here but you do need 2 days to do this as the gardens are vast. Would recommend this.
