Please note: tickets must be booked online and in advance of your visit. There are no boats, so the island is only open when the tide permits.

ST MICHAEL’S MOUNT CLOSURE

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT – ST MICHAEL'S MOUNT IS CLOSED ON TUESDAY 25th AUGUST 

Due to the high winds, St Michael’s Mount in its entirety will be closed on Tuesday 25th August and there will be no public access to the island.

 

Yesterday, we took the decision to close the castle with the lawns, garden terraces, shops and cafes remaining open. Today, wind conditions have worsened and it is no longer safe for any part of the island to remain open.

 

We are a tidal island that is governed by the forces of nature and sometimes those elements work against us.  Very high winds mean public safety on the most exposed and rugged parts of the island may be compromised and as your safety is our priority, we must take steps to mitigate any risks.

 

All tickets for 25th August will be refunded in due course and we expect monies to be returned to the accounts from which payments were made within 5-7 business days. We are sorry, but tickets cannot be exchanged for another day.

 

We know that this will be disappointing for those of you who have been looking forward to visiting St Michael’s Mount and we hope this doesn’t deter you from visiting in the future.

 

Warmest wishes,

 

 

The St Michael’s Mount team
