Well preserved castle. Amazing views. On a nice summer day, it is the perfect day out. You can mix swimming with some light rock climbing and some sight seeing. We loved it. Also amazing to see how the landscape changes with the low and hide...More

This is a fascinating structure that was initially a monastery, later a fortified castle and eventually a magnificent home that is still owned by the St Aubyn family in partnership with the National Trust. It is a lovely walk on the causeway from Marazion to...More

OMG this place is out of this world and soooo beautiful. We had a fantastic day here both on the Mount and in Marazion itself. So very worth a visit if you can.

We are staying in the area and have always meant to visit. I believe parking to always be a bit of a challenge when visiting popular places in Cornwall, but we found a car park just out of town and we walked along the beach...More

Plan your visit so you can walk across the causeway at low tide. Very interesting and beautiful place.

Walked from Penzance, most amazing views and beautiful photo opportunities. Boats are £2 each and very regular. Castle worth visiting

I’ve stayed in Cornwall a few times and marvelled at the view that is St Michaels Mount. Finally decided to walk across and visit the mount. I never imagined just what a trek it is to actually climb the old steps and go inside. I’m...More

Loved the castle, although it was a bit crowded (and we were there when it opened), but the best part was the experience of walking across the causeway, then up the pilgrim stairs. The views were fabulous wherever you looked. When we came down, the...More

Dont recommend that. Easy to park in town either free or with pay & display & walk. The tide comes up quickly, you may get stuck.

I would definitely recommend the baby carrier as the steps up to the castle is not going to be do-able with a buggy and will also be easier for you travel to and from the island
