St Michael's Mount, Marazion, Cornwall, TR17 OHSVisit Website
St Michael's Mount is without doubt one of the most recognisable attractions in Cornwall. This rocky Island just off Marazion in Mounts Bay is a living community and home to the St Aubyn family. St Michael's Mount is currently run by the National Trust. The medieval church and castle date from the 12th century, and the island can be accessed from along a causeway at low tide, or take a ferry at high tide, from mainland Marazion. The National Trust offer traditional cream teas, and cakes in their cafe and restaurant, found at the foot of the island. Tours are usually available, providing stories, myths and historical tales about the island.
St Michael's Mount sits in Mount's Bay, separated by the sea from the town of Marazion.
