St Michaels Mount (Cornwall)

  • Information

    St Michael’s Mount, a rocky island crowned with medieval church and castle. One of England’s most famous and dramatic coastal attractions. The oldest surviving buildings date from the 12th century, when a Benedictine priory was founded here.

    Accessible on foot at low tide across a causeway, at other times it is reached by a short boat trip.

    The island is managed by the National Trust and includes cafe/restaurant and shop.

    The gardens have limited opening times as they can’t cope with the large amount of summer visitors, see the National Trust website for more information.

      We timed it so that we took the boat over and walked back along the causeway.
      The castle is great with a lot of history that makes it suitable for all ages, although when we visited the gardens were not open, to visit those you will need to check the times as to protect them they from the sheer number of visitors they only open a couple of days a week.
