St. Michael's Mount, Marazion
Categories: Islands, Castles, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
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.

St Michaels mount is a "must see" location if you visiting Cornwall. Access at low tide is via a causeway but at other times regular boats run a service to the island from the mainland. The castle and... read more »
A short walk across the causeway when the tides out adds to this great day out. You can visit the house itself (at certain times of year I think) but gardens are open throughout the summer. Has a smal... read more »
Came and went via boat .staying in Marazion. National trust member. Interesting that nt pay for so much yet unsure whether public payers gain from what I have read Anyway you must visit.
I was planning to visit Marazion and St. Michael's Mount on 18th June 2016, and I made a mistake, I took an advance from my friend who was there a 2 weeks ago regarding Low Tide time to get from Marazion on St. Michael's Mount. At the time I got there the path was under the water (2pm) and low tide was at 10:47am (missed this one) and at 11pm which is too late for any photographs and visits of mount. Anyway, the weather was great, view from Marazion was gorgeous and I would definitely recommend trip in here. Please note! bring your own food if you don't want to starve :) because the food serving times of any pub or restaurant are in the morning till 1-2pm and then after 5;30pm till 9pm. Always double check the low tide time and opening and serving times for pubs before you get there, Have fun.
Amazing place. One of the places you have to see in the UK. Amazing views from both the mainland and the island. A lot of photograps can be taken. The island can be accesed by boat or foot. Be aware of the tides. We could only walk there between 11.00 and 14.30. If you miss those times you could always take a boat for £2. The castle is not that big but offers a great deal of views and the gardens are beautifull. The restaurant there is always full so it is a good idea to bring your own sandwiches. A lot of parking spaces around the area for £3-4/day.
Amazing to visit! Best to go with good weather, otherwise might be disappointed. Castle has impressive interior, and history. If the causeway is open, walking there is just a couple of minutes, otherwise with boat (2 pounds per person per way)
A beautiful place to visit. A stone's throw from the mainland, but feels secluded. There's lots of history here, but we mainly just took in the atmosphere and the view.
Stunning views from the castle. Really well maintained inside. Scones and tea at the bar inside were delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommend
