Knowing the tides make a huge difference. At low tide (usually in the evenings) reveals a walk-able pathway. As this happens in the evening, you need to take a boat to the island £2 per person. Note there are different piers available at different tides levels. So check out the opening pier before parking your car. Otherwise you may end... More

Time it right to walk across the causeway and you won't regret it. It's pretty slippery and easy to trip, so wear sensible shoes. The ferry is only a few pounds, so also a fun little jaunt. Not quite as populated as it's French counterpart, but a novelty nonetheless.

Pleas note - the Mount closes on the 29th October and I visited in mid November. If a view is what you're after it's gorgeous and very accessible this time of year and you can get a nice long walk across the beach (I used Accuweather and GoogleWeather to predict a sunny day). Having visited here in mid November -... More

We are staying in the area and have always meant to visit. I believe parking to always be a bit of a challenge when visiting popular places in Cornwall, but we found a car park just out of town and we walked along the beach to the causeway. On entering the site we discovered the house and gardens were shut... More

Despite the very blustery conditions, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to St. Michael's Mount. Even my 80 year old mother was able to make it all the way up the steps and enjoy the castle and grounds!

Upon our visit to Cornwall we thought we would go to St Michael's mount. We started the morning off bright and early to ensure we could walk across at low tide at 10.20. On arrival we were greeted at the entrance by a nice man telling us that the guided tour which we said we didn't want to attend and... More

I’m very sorry that your experience was not a positive one. We do publicise the tour information as clearly as possible, and the times and structure of our winter operation are advertised on all of our literature and website. We also have a mainland guide in the car park to help keep visitors informed. I have investigated the circumstances leading... More

We have visited St Michael's Mount many times and are always drawn back when ever we visit Cornwall. Firstly, there is the issue of how to get to the island from Marazion and back again. Depending on the tide times it is a short boat trip or a walk on the causeway.....both are fun and maybe going out one way... More

Walked over the causeway to the mount. Very friendly guides at the entrance. Loved seeing the film about life on the mount. Unfortunately couldn't go up to the top as was closed the day we were there but was nice just wandering around.

For anyone visiting the Cornish coast this has to be on your bucket list. Access via the causeway or boat this is a piece of living history. Quaint little harbour & home's still occupied add to the attraction. All day parking is available on the mainland from £5, boat across £2 then admission to the mount it's self unless you... More
