Winter Closure


We do not allow dogs on the island other than assistance dogs.

Why can’t dogs come too?

For the last two seasons dogs have been excluded from St Michael’s Mount as part of our response to Covid-19, because we needed to make sure that social distancing could be realistically observed in what is a very small area around the harbour. Visitors have never been able to take their dogs anywhere else on the island.


As part of opening up we decided that we won’t be allowing dogs - other than assistance dogs - back into the harbour.


This was a difficult decision. We know that this will disappoint some visitors. We know how important their dogs are to many people, but it was also clear that for many people, the experience of visiting us has improved as a result of having no dogs around what is a busy harbour area.
