St Michael's Mount is a tidal island in Mount's Bay, Cornwall, United Kingdom.
The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water.
Originally the site of a Benedictine Chapel, the spectacular castle on the rock dates from the 14th Century.
Now in the care of the National Trust, the Mount's castle and gardens are open to the public during weekdays from April to October, and most weekends.
Access is on foot across the causeway at low tide, or by short ferry crossing at high tide. St Michael's Mount, is 'the jewel in Cornwall's crown'.
This, the most famous of Cornwall's landmarks, has a fascinating history, is steeped in both legend and folklore, has stunning panoramic views across Mounts Bay to
Lands End and The Lizard, boasts a picturesque harbour and has a spectacular castle, complete with magestic gardens.
