Plan your visit

St Michael’s Mount is an ancient tidal island. This is part of its charm, but occasionally it can also be a part of the challenge.

How to get to the Mount

You can reach the Mount by a cobbled causeway at low tide and by boat when the causeway is covered and the tide is high. Boats run from 29 March to 31 October – they are not available in winter.

Meeting your accessibility needs

If you have young children or mobility issues, it can sometimes be tricky to get around. Please note: you can’t take a wheelchair or pushchair up to the castle.

Bad weather

Strong winds and/or rough seas can force us to close the island. Where possible, we’ll give 24 hours’ notice. We’ll let booked customers know by email and issue refunds within seven working days.

We also announce closures on our website and social media. If we don’t announce a closure, we are open.
