Our Island Story

Go back in time to a monastery,
a fortress, a port and a family home.

Religious roots

Marvel at the church built on the summit of the island after the Norman invasion when St Michael's Mount was granted to the Benedictine Abbey of Mont St Michel in France.

Under siege

Witness the gun batteries and suits of armour that hark back to times when the fortress was under siege during the War of the Roses and the Civil War.

Living history

Brimming with treasures of a past life, the medieval castle has been passed down through generations of the St Aubyn family and is still home to James and Mary St Aubyn today.

Bronze Age Hoard

At the end of 2009, parts of an axe head, dagger and intact metal clasp were found on the Mount. The British Museum has confirmed these dating back to the Bronze Age and this extraordinary find is now on display in the castle.
