Plan Your Visit
Every sunrise, something new…
Due to poor weather conditions, the castle is closed today (6 October) and no ferry boats are running. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
By foot or by boat?
At low tide, the causeway appears from the sea and you can reach St Michael’s Mount by foot, following in the footsteps of giants and pilgrims. Setting out from the beachfront at the Godolphin Arms, it takes just minutes to walk across the ancient cobble causeway which stretches from the mainland to the island. Please use our handy causeway search to look up when the causeway will be open on the day of your visit.
When the tide floods in, our boatmen will ferry you across the water to the island. At high tide during spring, summer and autumn, frequent motorboats leave from landing points along the shore at Marazion for the Mount’s ancient harbour.
Find out more about how to get to the Mount.
Discover the castle
Climb the cobbled pathway up to the island’s summit and discover its changing faces. Bronze age settlers, monks, pilgrims and soldiers have all left their mark on the Mount.

Explore the gardens
Weave your way through garden terraces bursting with colour. Breathe in the sea air, scented with springtime blossom or summer herbs. Peer from the battlements at the garden terraces stepping down to sea. Due to their fragility, the gardens are subject to restricted opening times.
