If you visit, check the times of the tides so that you use the amphibious vehicle (in winter) one way and walk over the causeway the other, to get the best of your visit. In summer there are other boats from 3 locations. We had...More

We visited on a pretty stormy day which was definitely an experience!! Would definitely recommend visiting. Going across on the amphibian was fun, it’s costs £6 return per person. Although it would be nice to walk across the path at low tide too, we were...More

I visited the place with my teenage daughter and we were so happy with our day spent there! We planned everything in advance and checked the tide timetable, so we had a walk both to and from the island (highly recommended). Little climb to the...More

Happy to be local enough to visit very many times a year. No matter what the season it always worth a stroll along to, near to or up close to, you don't have to climb it to appreciate it. I love to photograph this place...More

Great place to see. Lovely views and plenty to see and do . Kids had a lovely day running around and exploring. Amenities were good, cafes and pubs very welcoming. Parking was no problem.

This is just yet another “must see” in Cornwall. The tide was in so we had to take a boat over. A quick trip but in and of itself that was fun! Would have been fun to walk over (and free) but not to be,...More

As part of a whistle stop world tour of Cornwall, we wanted to walk the causeway and climb to the castle. After the usual £3.00 parking charge (everywhere in Cornwall seems to want to charge £3.00+ regardless of duration!) up the road we walked along...More

I went in December one year. I think the castle was closed, the other facilities such as restaurant was still open. There is just no boat that ferry you across but if the tide is out you are able to walk along the causeway... More
