St Michael's Mount

Crossing the bay to the sea bound castle on St Michael’s Mount is an adventure in itself. Walk in the footsteps of pilgrims who have crossed the causeway through the ages, or at high tide, hop aboard a boat and motor into the harbour where trading ships once moored. St Michael’s Mount is full of life, a place where ancient and modern sit side by side. A medieval castle that is still home to a modern family. A tranquil, beautiful location that has played its part in many furious battles. Visit and explore the myths, legends and living history of this magical place.
