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.


Village Walks & Talks - Island Life Today - every day at 11am and 2pm

During Autumn, our free walks and talks around the village and harbour side of St Michael's Mount will take place daily at 11am and 2pm. The tours will walk you around the island village and harbour 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.
