St. Michael's Mount, Marazion

#1 of 645 in Nature in England
Island Garden Must See
A rocky promontory with an almost mystical air surrounding it, St. Michael's Mount sits moodily just off the equally spectacular coast of Cornwall. A man-made causeway links the mainland to the tidal island allowing you to walk there from the town of Marazion. A topic of local myth and legend, the island boasts a picturesquely situated castle, which contains a number of relics, including armor and antique furniture.

  • Perfection! Really pleasant day out location. Loved every minute of it. Boat ride to the castle, stunning grounds and fascinating building. Would recommend you take your own food and drinks across to save on costs but otherwise faultless must-see location.
  • Beautiful area with great scenery and a rich history. Definitely recommend to anyone near the area. Accessible by boat for a small fee when the tide is in or if you prefer to wait you can walk right out to the island when the tide is out via a large pathway. Have been on two occasions and would go back again. Excellent for members of the national trust as the entrance fee is waived in line with most other national trust properties.
