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 CASTLE AND GARDEN TERRACES ARE OPEN

ONLINE TICKETS ONLY

BOOK CASTLE TICKETS HERE

BOOK GARDEN TERRACES TICKETS HERE

We are only allowing access to St Michael’s Mount through a ticket purchased online. The number of tickets sold for each day will be limited.

We are not permitting dogs on to the island. The exception to the rule is assistance dogs

To ensure that St Michael’s Mount is safe for visitors, our staff and the people that live here, our open days and times now vary with the times of the tide. Days and times can be found HERE

 A ticket to the garden terraces or castle will provide you with access to the island for the full duration that we are open on the day of your visit.  We will be open for approximately four hours per day, which is the time that the causeway is uncovered by the sea allowing visitors to walk across and back again before the tide comes in.

Both the garden terraces and castle ticket have a timed element. This is the time you should be at the garden terraces or castle “checkpoint” to begin your tour of the terraces or castle. These times are important as they help us manage the flow of visitors and social distancing. It can take up to approximately 30 minutes to walk from Marazion beach, across the causeway and on to either the garden terraces or castle checkpoint, so please take this into consideration when planning your day.

If you want to see both the garden terraces and castle you will have time to do that on the day of your visit but you must purchase a separate ticket for each. It usually takes approximately 45 minutes to walk the one-way garden terrace route and a further 45 minutes to walk through the castle.  There's a 15 minute walk from the garden terraces to the castle checkpoint and vice versa.

Please remember that once you have purchased your ticket you can come across to enjoy the island including the lawns, takeaways and shops as soon as we are open. The timed element of the ticket only relates to the one-way routes in the garden terraces and castle.

Our Frequently Asked Questions have been updated to answer queries regarding a visit at this time. 

National Trust members are FREE but will need to book a ticket online. NHS workers are also FREE and again have to book a ticket online.
