St Michaels Mount
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.
