Well worth looking up the tidal times so that you can walk across to the mount. Once over the gardens are well worth the time to explore before heading up to the castle itself. Inside the castle still feels like a home and is a lovely way to spend an hour taking a trip back in history.

We visited in February half term with a 5 year old and 2 year old. We checked tide times on the website before hand which turned out to be exactly right so we were able to walk over the causeway which was lovely. We set off to walk up to the castle and were offered a carrier for the two... More

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

Thank you for submitting a review of your visit. I’m sorry that there was some confusion with our opening arrangements. I’ve double checked our own website and the National Trust site to confirm the correct times were being advertised. During half term (the week of your visit), we closed at 16:00 as advertised on the website, we also state ‘Last... 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
