Summary

Reached by a tidal causeway, or by boat at high tide, the island of St. Michael’s Mount is topped by a castle, still lived in by Lord and Lady St Levan. As well as the castle, there is also a cliffside garden, and the village for visitors to explore.

Where is St Michael's Mount located?

On the spectacular Mount’s Bay in West Cornwall, St Michael’s Mount sits just off the mainland from Marazion.

What is the history of St Michael's Mount to the present day?

The church and priory within the castle of St Michael’s Mount were built by the monks who owned Normandy’s Mont St Michel, following the Norman conquest in 1066. The Mount has been the subject of many battles since that time, from 1193 when it was seized by Henry La Pomeray, and including the Wars of the Roses and the English Civil War. It also saw a Napoleonic ship captured on Marazion beach and its beacon was the first to be lit to warn of the advance of the Spanish Armada.

What is there to see and do at St Michael's Mount?

Visitors can walk the causeway from Marazion beach, and climb the path up to the castle. The gardens can be viewed from the terraces of the castles, but are also open at set times. The visitor centre, in The Barge House, brings to life the history of the island. There is an award-winning restaurant, The Sail Loft, as well as a cafe and courtyard shop.
