Plan Your Visit

From pulling on your walking shoes and choosing how to get here, to losing yourself in the history, myth and legend that shapes the Mount’s story, plan your visit and make your trip your own.

At low tide, the causeway appears from the sea and you can reach St Michael’s Mount by foot, following in the footsteps of giants and pilgrims. Setting out from the beachfront at the Godolphin Arms, it takes just minutes to walk across the ancient cobble causeway which stretches from the mainland to the island. Please use our handy causeway search to look up when the causeway will be open on the day of your visit.

When the tide floods in, our boatmen will ferry you across the water to the island. At high tide during spring, summer and autumn, frequent motorboats leave from landing points along the shore at Marazion for the Mount’s ancient harbour.

The causeway and paths around the island are cobbled and uneven in many areas. Sturdy footwear is recommended. Please see our accessibility page if you have any mobility issues.
