All visitors to the island must book a ticket online in advance.
If you are a National Trust member you must still book a ticket, although you will not need to pay*.
Autumn opening: Until 31st October, at times when the causeway is closed and covered by the sea, all visitors (including National Trust members) are required to pay the boat fare to get to St Michael’s Mount. Boat tickets will need to be added to your basket when prompted, as part of the booking process if they are required. When you want to leave the island you can walk back to the mainland if the causeway is open, or purchase a boat ticket back to the mainland from any of our island retail outlets on the day.
Winter opening: From 1st November, our boats will no longer be operational and all visitors will walk to and from the island via the ancient cobbled causeway during causeway opening times (low tide). Please check dates and times here before you book your ticket.
