About St Michael's Mount

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

You will walk to and from St Michael's Mount on the cobbled causeway. A ticket to the garden terraces will provide access to the island for the full duration that we are open on the day of your visit. Although it does vary, we will be open for approximately four hours per day, being the time that the causeway is uncovered by the sea. As soon as the sea uncovers the causeway and if you have purchased an online ticket, you can walk across and explore the island. See the St Michael's Mount website for causeway opening times.

A garden ticket has a timed element. This is the time you should be at the garden terraces "checkpoint". These times are important as they help us manage the flow of visitors and social distancing in the terraces, which are a series of spectacular pathways through the more formal parts of the garden. It can take up to approximately 30 minutes to walk from the mainland beach, across the causeway and to the garden terraces checkpoint. Please remember that you can come across to enjoy the island including the lawns, takeaways and shop as soon as we are open. The timed element of the ticket only relates to the arrival time at the one-way route in the garden terraces.

National Trust members are FREE but will need to book a ticket. All National Trust members are asked to book tickets in line with their membership (Individual, Joint, Family). We are also offering a limited number of FREE tickets each open day to NHS workers.

To buy a ticket, please select the date you would like to visit and the time you want to start your tour of the garden terraces. Please remember you can access the island before this time and stay for the duration that we are open.

Our food and beverage offers will be serving refreshments with contactless payments only. Plant Sales will also be on offer with payment cash only via an honesty box. The Island Shop is open selling bespoke products, keepsakes and so much more.

Car Parking: There is ample parking in the seafront car park which is clearly signposted to the town of Marazion. Charges are payable (contactless card only), including National Trust members. Please note that NHS workers can park for free - please bring proof of ID.

We have created a FAQ section on our website to assist in any questions you may have with regards to a visit at this time.

Please note that the safety of our staff, visitors and island residents is our main priority. We have a strict limited capacity and have implemented a number of safety and hygiene measures that meet Government guidelines and advice. We ask all our visitors to be patient when queuing, to respect any one-way route, and adhere to a social distance of 2 metres at all times.
