We're delighted to welcome visitors back to St Michael’s Mount.
To help maintain social distancing on the island, we're operating on a ticket only basis.
There are timed ticket slots for the castle in order to manage the flow of visitors safely,
Although castle entry times vary, we'll be open to ticket holders for approximately four hours per day. When the tide is out, the causeway is uncovered by the sea and visitors can walk across to the island and back again.
The ticket time only relates to the castle entry time, please feel free to enjoy our shops and cafes whilst you wait for your slot.
Our last open days for 2020 will be 14-22 October. We look forward to reopening in 2021.
Following government guidelines, we've increased cleaning procedures and introduced one-way routes across the island and in the castle. Face coverings are mandatory in all of our enclosed spaces.
Dogs are not permitted on the island at this time, but assistance dogs are welcome.

Interview with Head Gardener, Darren Little - What to see in the gardens during a visit this Summer and Autumn.
As a tidal island we’re 500 metres from the mainland, but getting here is easy…
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.
Walk out across the cobbled causeway or hop aboard a boat and in minutes you’ll be here.
From guided tours to tide times, work out when to come and what to see to make the most of your visit.
