As part of our Coastal Garden season, we invite our visitors to take photos of the garden and post via our social media channels using #seagarden. Three winners will be selected and will have their image printed on canvas and exhibited in the St Michael's Mount Summer House during July and August.

We are interested in images that offer an interesting perspective of our coastal cliff clinging gardens. As one of the only gardens in the UK to be designed to be viewed from above, we will accept images that are taken from within the gardens, and also images taken from the castle terrace looking down to the gardens.
