Adventures for all the family on St Michael’s Mount – a treasure island of myths and legends.

Hunt for the giant’s heart. Picnic on the lawn. Watch your little ones light up as they learn about our living, breathing island.

Can I visit with children?

Of course, but there are a few things to bear in mind.

The cobbled causeway to St Michael’s Mount can be tricky to navigate with a pushchair. It’s best to leave anything with wheels in the car and opt for a baby carrier for the day instead.

If that’s not possible, all-terrain pushchairs can be used to explore the island village, but steep, slippery and uneven cobbled slopes to the castle mean there’s no pushchair access. However, you can leave your pushchair with us in the special pushchair park and you can pick it up when you’re back.

St Michael’s Mount is a rugged, island with rocky outcrops and steep precipices in parts. There is a working harbour with high walls and steep drops. Parents must be responsible for the safety of their children at all times.

What about feeding and changing?

We have baby changing facilities on the island and highchairs are available at our indoor eating outlets, along with a selection of good value, healthy snacks, drinks and meals for children.

What should we wear?

We recommend that you bring layers of clothing on the day of your visit as you might leave the mainland in full sun, but there’s always a chance you will return in the pouring rain (and vice versa).

Full clothing and footwear must be worn in the castle and the church.  We advise walking shoes/boots for all the family as the terrain on the island is cobbled, steep, rugged and uneven in parts.
