St. Michael's Mount, Marazion

4.6
#1 of 156 in Sightseeing in Cornwall
Island Castle
A rocky promontory with an almost mystical air surrounding it, St. Michael's Mount sits moodily just off the equally spectacular coast of Cornwall. A man-made causeway links the mainland to the tidal island allowing you to walk there from the town of Marazion. A topic of local myth and legend, the island boasts a picturesquely situated castle, which contains a number of relics, including armor and antique furniture. A visit to St. Michael's Mount represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Marazion family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • The island mount is stunning. Great views all round. Fun to walk across during low tide. A bit smaller than it's French counterpart but oozing with as much if not more charm. And the beach front is pristine.
  • What a beautifully interesting place to visit...just wish my knees had held out long enough to walk the gardens as well as the castle
  • Always a delight to visit St Michael's Mount. We walked across and got the boat back. (Then had a paddle on the beach- it being a surprisingly warm late September!) Beautiful historic place with exquisite gardens and a beautiful building if you have strong enough legs to climb up! It is quite a steep climb up to the castle itself so some visitors with mobility issues may want to stay in the beautiful Sail Loft restaurant and enjoy a gorgeous cream tea while they wait for their family or friends! Highly recommend a visit. Cant wait to go back.If you're National Trust members, entry to the house and Gardens is free.
  • Great day out, especially for kids. History is fascinating, and still privately owned and owners in residence. National trust operate and do a great job.
  • I went here with my 6 year old daughter, 4 year old son and my wife, took a slow boat ride over to the island, walked up the enchanting steps to the castle, the views are spectacular, we walked around the castle which was fascinating then when finished we went back down to the lower grounds and enjoyed Cornish cream tea and scones , after that we spent 3 hours in the gardens, in total we spent 6 hours in the island it truly is breath taking !!
