An excellent visit with small kids, loads to explore and the tide coming in as an extra part of the excitement. you can just about get a buggy up the causeway but I wouldn't bother unless its the large outdoor type.

Prices are around £10/adult and to be honest it's not that special, overpriced for what it is. Also very busy due to the fact that tides mean limited access - access not great for prams/wheelchairs.

The views of St Michael's Mount as you walk along from the car park entice you to wend your way there. We caught a boat over as the tide was still in, and walked backed over the causeway. The castle was interesting, although there is...More

Waited for the tide and walked across the causeway to the Island. A steep walk to the castle with may rooms and artifacts on display. Modelled on the Mont St Michel in Normandy but much smaller.

This adventure is a real must for the whole family. The walk along the causeway to the castle, is not to be missed. Check out the tide times before you visit. You can get a shuttle boat across when the tides in. This is good...More

What a wonderful place! The beach was beautiful and the local shops were great. On the boat journey across, the "boatsman" was lovely and really helpful - it felt like every effort was made to accommodate my partner with her visual impairment. All the staff...More

We arrived before the tide had receded and used the boat connection - we were able to walk back across later. We didn't bother with the castle but spent over two hours in the gardens - absolutely stunning. Highly Recommended !

St Michaels mount is on an island just offshore of mounts bay. The nearby car parks are £350 to park all day. I suggest getting there early around 9.30 as the car parks fill up quickly. There is a short walk to the causeway, but...More

I think I'd expected St Michael's Mount to be a bit more like Mont St-Michel in France - ie with more of a town/village attached to the castle - as it happens the village is very small and the castle the main attraction. Weather/logistics meant...More

Yes it's a dog friendly place! You won't find many places that aren't dog friendly in Cornwall - the rick stein hotel even invites dogs to the rooms and has special rates for them (they even offer dog sitters).
