St Michaels Mount is a must when you visit Cornwall. You can see amazing views once you get to the top, and it's great learning about the history of it. We took the boat out there as we just missed low tide, but on the way back we walked along the causeway which was strange (it felt like walking through... More

We took the amphibious vehicle over to the mount as the tide was in. As it is winter the tours of the castle are restricted to 10.30am and 1.30pm. Before our tour we stopped off at the cafe for coffe and could see some nice plates of food being served. A shame we had not long eaten. We were taken... More

This is an interesting and scenic place to visit. In December it was very cold pausing every 5 minutes up the steep hill (to let the slower ones in the group catch up and rest, and also to tell some of the history on the way up), and we did spend a lot of time standing in windy places, so... More

Walked out to the castle at low tide and purchased the tour on the island. At this time of year (winter), you can only visit on Tuesdays and Fridays, and in order to go up to the castle, you have to purchase the tour. It was interesting, but if I had to do again, I would skip the tour for... More

Knowing the tides make a huge difference. At low tide (usually in the evenings) reveals a walk-able pathway. As this happens in the evening, you need to take a boat to the island £2 per person. Note there are different piers available at different tides levels. So check out the opening pier before parking your car. Otherwise you may end... More

Time it right to walk across the causeway and you won't regret it. It's pretty slippery and easy to trip, so wear sensible shoes. The ferry is only a few pounds, so also a fun little jaunt. Not quite as populated as it's French counterpart, but a novelty nonetheless.

Pleas note - the Mount closes on the 29th October and I visited in mid November. If a view is what you're after it's gorgeous and very accessible this time of year and you can get a nice long walk across the beach (I used Accuweather and GoogleWeather to predict a sunny day). Having visited here in mid November -... More

We are staying in the area and have always meant to visit. I believe parking to always be a bit of a challenge when visiting popular places in Cornwall, but we found a car park just out of town and we walked along the beach to the causeway. On entering the site we discovered the house and gardens were shut... More

Despite the very blustery conditions, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to St. Michael's Mount. Even my 80 year old mother was able to make it all the way up the steps and enjoy the castle and grounds!

Upon our visit to Cornwall we thought we would go to St Michael's mount. We started the morning off bright and early to ensure we could walk across at low tide at 10.20. On arrival we were greeted at the entrance by a nice man telling us that the guided tour which we said we didn't want to attend and... More

I’m very sorry that your experience was not a positive one. We do publicise the tour information as clearly as possible, and the times and structure of our winter operation are advertised on all of our literature and website. We also have a mainland guide in the car park to help keep visitors informed. I have investigated the circumstances leading... More
