We took the boat to St.Michael's Mount around 3:30 then walk on the tide back to Marazion around 6:30 p.m. This is not the first time I have been to a castle. The castle on St.Michael's Mount is delicate and I enjoyed it very much....More

Visited last week and when we arrived the tide was in so had to take a boat across which was £2.00 each although a very short journey was very pleasant. We went early so not too crowded it is a tough walk up to the...More

We took the ferry at 1030. You need several hours to look around. Very friendly and helpful guides. Amazing but wear walking shoes. If you think you need might need walking poles. You do. Take them. Cobbles and steep and slippery. But well worth the...More

I visited St Michaels Mount on a very windy Saturday. The castle was closed but we walked across the footpath & around the island. It was incredibly beautiful & the children had lots of fun ‘walking out to sea’!!!

What an incredible historic structure! You can be ferried across in high tide or walk along the causeway to the island and be prepared to have a tough, steep walk up stone pathways to reach the castle. This is very worthwhile as the view is...More

Wonderful, fabulous, well worth visiting, and if you are in the local area at Christmas, think of attending morning service on Christmas Day. The climb is steep and I do think perhaps in this day and age a way could be found to transport disabled...More

A must- do if ever you're in this part of the country. Managed by the National Trust, it's accessed on via a tidal causeway (or £2 pp boat ride). Having crossed over from Marazion, there are plenty of eateries and toilets available at the foot...More

Sitting out in the waters of the Cornwall Coast, St Michaels Mount is impressive and dramatic. Access is easy at low tide with a 10min walk across sand or the stone road causeway from the village Marazion. The walk up the Mount is worthwhile. The...More
