Opening Hours

Please note that St Michael's Mount is CLOSED from Sunday 29 October 2017 to Friday 16 March 2018.

St Michael's Mount will be OPEN to visitors for the 2018 season from Sunday 18 March 2018.

Why is St Michael's Mount closed?

This winter we are completing our services project to bring the island up to date with 21st century services and technology that will benefit our visitors and the island community. This includes upgrading the castle pipes and drains for mains water, grey water and sewerage.

We are extending the Island Shop to create a larger retail space with improved customer flow.

Work on the castle terraces continues, to try and resolve the damp issues in the rooms below.

The castle walls are undergoing some essential repointing work.

A major tree management programme is being undertaken by our garden team.

Can I walk over to the island when the causeway is open?

We will not stop people crossing to the island when the causeway is open. However, please note that there are NO FACILITIES OPEN, and due to extensive building work being undertaken on the island, there may be heavy plant equipment crossing on the causeway and in the village areas.

Please take care and note the causeway closing times as there are no public boats to or from the island during this period of closure.
