Press and Film Locations

A cinematic location…


From Dracula to Trevor Nunn’s Twelfth Night and children’s fantasy adventure, The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box to Countryfile and This Morning. Over the years, we’ve provided a striking scene for many a feature film and TV programme – and we still do. Searching for the perfect shoot location? 

If you’re shooting a lookbook, documentary or television drama, we can help you find the right setting. 


From travel articles, to historical pieces, we’ve been featured in national and international publications of all kinds, including Coast Magazine, Hello!Daily Telegraph and the New York Times . If you’re a member of the press and would like detailed information or high resolution pictures of the Mount, please get in touch.

Drone Filming is not permitted on the island or causeway

Filming with drones is not permitted on the beach, causeway, or anywhere on the island. We are often asked why we don’t allow drones to fly at St Michael's Mount. As a National Trust property we adhere to the strict guidelines regarding the use of drones, which are in place to conserve and protect the building and visitors. We ask our visitors to respect these guidelines and to not fly drones.

Few non-commercial users have the correct training or permission from the Civil Aviation Authority to operate drones and should a drone cause damage or harm, pilots generally do not have the correct insurances to compensate those affected. Drones should not be flown over people and as much of our land is open access we cannot guarantee an area is ever completely empty. Drones should not be flown near property and the special nature of our properties makes the risk of damage more severe. Some sites may have wildlife or agricultural animals which could be affected by the presence of drones. Many drones have cameras attached and these could infringe data protection laws (filming people without permission) and potentially could contravene National Trust rules on commercial photography and filming. We therefore do not allow drone flying from or over National Trust land except by contractors commissioned by the Trust for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and are operating under controlled conditions.
