Great experience walking over the causeway, smaller cousin to the one in France but worth the effort. Pretty cold the day we visited

What a glorious place- sadly we arrived too late in the day to be allowed to crossover but even from the beach it was just a joy to see

we have always enjoyed coming here over the years. This biggest negatives are that it can sometimes get quite crowded and it is not practical for elderly or disabled. However, if you are young/abled bodied it is a fantastic day out for anyone from young families to couples. The castle is lovely and with the imagination of young children you... More

A trip to St Michael's Mount rarely disappoints. The majestic site of the island as you approach it is stunning. Walking across the causeway, with a few small waves still lapping over it is great fun for the kids. The seven year old was given a postcard on arrival with 10 things to spot around the island, which she loved.... More

We managed to walk across, as tide was out , walked up the steep hill to the wonderful castle, I made it, but is was worth the walk. Inside felt so warm, inviting, and there was lots of interesting pictures and articles to see. We walk out to the courtyard and the views were breathtaking, the air was amazing so... More

Or maybe too much! We made an unplanned stop here after visiting St Ives. The website said it closed at 5 and as we have NT membership we didn't mind only having a couple of hours there. After a pleasant walk across the causeway, we found that the closing time was actually four o clock. When we went to show... More

In all the years of coming to Cornwall this was the first time we have visited St. Michaels Mount. I would recommend it, we went across on the boat (which was great) and managed to walk back as the tide was out. The place itself was spectacular, I would recommend visiting when the gardens were open, we missed those although... More

We visited on a gorgeous August day, so naturally it was absolutely packed. A great sign for the attraction but not so enjoyable for us. However it is a lovely place to visit and both the children and the adults in our party enjoyed their time here. Possibly too many photos being taken and a huge lack of respect for... More

The area is beautiful, the walk was also very good. The guide on the island was very helpful, most of the areas (plant shop, gift shop) (everything to the left) was closed. The temperature was around 15 degrees, the sun was out and it's half term but couldn't find anywhere to buy ice cream

The best view of this treasure is obviously from he shore but it is well worth a visit and the visitors centre is very well laid out and interesting.
