About St Michael's Mount
Explore the world of St Michael's Mount and discover legend, myth and over a thousand years of history. Enjoy the thrill of getting here by walking the cobbled causeway or when the tide is in, boat hop to the island.
Visit an evocative castle, a sub-tropical garden paradise and a close knit island community, home to the St Aubyn family and thirty islanders.
Enjoy children's quizzes in the castle and gardens, a seasonal events programme including live music and entertainments or simply relax over a cream tea or sit down for a meal in our quality cafe or restaurant.
