Through Time & Tide




Following the further advice of the UK Government on Monday 23rd March, we have now closed the island entirely to the public. Please do not access the island or go on the rocks. Please respect the safety and wellbeing of our island community and essential staff during this difficult time, as we seek to minimise social contact and therefore help control the spread of the disease.

We want to thank our incredible team for their understanding and our visitors for their continued support. We hope to reopen our doors in the not too distant future.  

Please check our website and social media channels for additional updates. We aim to continue to bring you news and stories from the Mount during this unforeseen closure period.

How do I get there?

By car, by bus, by bike – choose how to get here, pull into the town and look out to our beautiful island, set in the sweep of Mount’s Bay.

By foot or by boat

Walk out across the cobbled causeway or hop aboard a boat and in minutes you’ll be here.
