Loved... LOVED.... L O V E D St. Michaels Mount, one of my treasured memories I will have with me forever is of being here. Found the idea of having to wait till low tide to be accessible a fascinating concept and once over the causeway which is mostly all cobbles and quite uneven so some care is needed, you are met with a whole little "village" plus a magnificent castle looking down on everything (and all cobblestone pathways). We didnt visit the Castle, as we had our dog on holiday with us and you are not allowed to take them up there, but nevertheless, we loved St Michaels Mount and enjoyed our Cornish Cream Tea from the Sail Loft Restaurant. Will definately be returning here when we are next in Cornwall ~ hopefully not too long away, and will be hopefully visiting the Castle too

As one approaches Mount St Michael, you are greeted with an impressive view of the church and village which looks very imposing. However as you drive into the town you are greeted by barriers in and out of town. It has got very commercialised and you are guided to a car park where you collect a ticket to enter the carpark.

Be warmed to check the cost of your stay before you get onto the many busses that go to and from the Mount. The journey on the busses to the mount, even for disabled people in chairs is fine as you get taken straight there. Mind, once in the Mount, the lanes are uneven and uphill so one may struggle abit but for the able bodied lots to see and go upstairs for to see the amazing views.

Not really suitable for people with any form of disability or in wheelchairs as main street is very uphill and uneven and may struggle. Lots of places to eat and toilets to refresh oneself.

On our way out of the car park, you need to be aware that it's card only for payment and the money gets taken off automatically and the barrier was slow to raise for us. Mind all in all, a good place to visit.

Great place to visit. Just a few miles from where we are staying. Please can you list Wayfarers camping and caravan site in St Hilary, Penzance as I would like to write a very well deserved review!

This attraction was recommended by a colleague of mine. We timed it to cross the causeway at low tide (with 20mins to spare). By the time we reached halfway across the causeway, it dipped so the water level was knee high (being 5ft 3). The kids (6 and 7 yrs) found it fun- it is worth wearing swim wear/ shorts to cross the causeway. My trousers and knickers got wet, as i was wearing a longish tunic I took off my troiusers and explored the castle and grounds trouserless!! The kids were kept busy with a quiz and the climb / walk to the top of the castle was worth it for the magnificent views. The 'climb' is steep and suitable footwear is a must!
