St Michael's Mount Garden Opening days and times are limited to conserve and protect the dry stone terraces and narrow grass paths from too much wear and tear and erosion. The garden is planted to be enjoyed from the castle's south terrace, as well as from within.

Please note that Drone filming is not permitted on the island. Go to Press and Film Locations for guidelines. 

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. One way fares are £2.00 for adults and £1.00 for children. This cost is applicable to National Trust members as well as non-National Trust members. Go to By Boat for further detail.

At low tide access to the island is via the causeway. Setting out from Marazion Beach, it takes just minutes to walk across the ancient cobbled causeway that stretches from the mainland to the island. For details on crossing via the causeway visit our Causeway Opening Times

Family: 2 adults and up to 3 children. Single adult family: 1 adult and up to 3 children.

National Trust members: Please note that you must bring your valid National Trust membership card with you. We are no longer able to allow entrance to members who do not have their membership card with them. Please note that the car park is not owned or managed by the National Trust and car parking charges do apply to members.

National Trust gift cards and National Trust digital vouchers/gift cards cannot be redeemed at St Michael's Mount.

Paths around the island are steep, cobbled and uneven with no handrails, so sensible footwear is recommended. Unfortunately it is not possible to take wheelchairs and pushchairs up to the castle. Please view our Access Map for more information.

Dogs are welcome onto the island around the harbour and village areas, as long as they are kept on a lead and not left alone. However, they are not allowed into the castle, garden or grounds (including the castle paths). Guide dogs are an exception to this rule.
