St. Michael's Mount, Marazion

#1 of 636 in Nature in England
Must see · 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.
