Come ashore for a castle tour, a taste of island life or to witness a sub-tropical paradise.
Crossing the bay to the sea-bound castle is a mini adventure in itself. Choose to leave the mainland behind on foot or by boat. Walk in the footsteps of pilgrims who have crossed the causeway throughout the ages. Or, when the tide floods over the historic footway, hop onboard a boat and motor into the harbour where trading ships once moored.
To do the Mount justice and enjoy all its different aspects including the journey across, allow 3-4 hours.
NEW FOR 2014
60th Anniversary Celebrations
This year will see St Michael's Mount celebrate the 60th anniversary of its gift to the National Trust. We intend to celebrate this unique partnership with a spectacular firework display and will be announcing further details on this very soon, so do keep checking back for further details.
Village Walks & Talks
Island Life Today
This year we will be continuing with our free walks and talks around the village and harbour side of St Michael's Mount. Led by keen historian, veteran tour guide and long-standing island resident, Bob Hunt, the tour will walk you around the island village and harbour side focusing on the history of community life from its heyday as a port with a population of over two hundred to the everyday life of getting the children to school and transporting shopping over to the island. The tour will also take in some of the historical buildings within the village, including two former public houses and the old mackerel smoking house.
Tours will take place Tuesday and Friday at 11am and 2pm, will last for 30 minutes and be free of charge.
