Standing proudly in Mounts Bay, St Michael's Mount is definitely worth visiting. There is plenty of history surrounding the Mount and if you are lucky to be there at low tide you can walk across the causeway, where legend has it that a giant once walked! The colour of the water is spectacular surrounding the isle and on a sunny day you can clearly see the causeway under the high tide.

Either stroll from the mainland on foot or boat hop to the island where you will discover the history of a priory, fortress, harbour and home. A tour of the castle is recommended, there is plenty to see inside the historic building and chapel. Children will have great fun moving through the various rooms especially if they are occupied in completing the castle quiz with the lure of a prize for answering the questions correctly.

In it's heyday the island population reached three hundred. Today the seafront cottages are home to over 30 islanders whose jobs range from gardener, to boatman and handyman. The island is home to James & Mary St Aubyn who still live within the medieval walls of the fortress. The Mount has survived battles and sieges throughout the ages and you can see the watchtower, the murdering hole, and suits of armour.

The views are spectacular from the Mount, and there is a lovely cafe / restaurant on the island which serves good hot and cold foods, ice creams and cream teas.
