Update: The island is closed on 20/10/20 due to high winds. Our last open days in 2020 will be 21st and 22nd October. Please book online and in advance.


Through Time & Tide

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.

Please see the schedule of open days and causeway open times.

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.

How do I get there?

As a tidal island we’re 500 metres from the mainland, but getting here is easy…

Arriving at Marazion

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.
