Brilliant weather and nice easy path from Penzance railway station to Marazion and our final destination of St. Michaels Mount. Path is well used but fairly wide for the most part. Fabulous views the whole way there and back. Recommend.

An enjoyable walk from Marazion to St Michaels Mount. Make sure you get the timings right on the tides. St Michaels Mount beautiful in its own right. Pathway is cobbled, so not really suitable for the elderly, although I must say it did'nt stop many.

Get the tide right and walking the causeway to St Michaels Mount is a treat. Mount and Marazion itself have cafes and hotels. Beach great for families.

We walked from Penzance to Marazion and took the bus back. The path starts just behold the bus station in Penzance and I must admit that I don’t find the first 1/4 of the path very charming. But the last 3/4 is enjoyable. We went...More

Yes if the tide is out you can walk but if not there are lots of little boats to take you over. It’s fabulous! Enjoy!
