A must visit if you are in Marazion and well worth the climb to the top, with amazing views! Don't forget to visit the gardens as well.

Had really looked forward to visiting this Island for a long time and wasn't disappointed. The view across to the mount is beautiful and we were lucky to have a lovely sunny day. Very easy to park and an easy walk across to the man-made...More

This is an amazing place, the hike to the top is steep but well worth it. Even if you can’t make the hike take the ferry over and visit the small town inside.

Lovely place, but dogs are restricted to the grounds only and are not allowed in the gardens. Therefore we had a quick visit but worth seeing nevertheless.

we could see the castle from the balcony of our apartment the causeway was always busy at low tide as were the ferries when the tide was in. Its a steep climb to the top but well worth the effort and the views are amazing.....More

We was lucky to be able to use the boat to cross the water to the island of St.Micheal’s Mount as it was high tide. Explore the very interesting history of the castle we the family still occupy & lives in there! Breath taking views...More
