National Trust Member Admission Castle

Take a journey of discovery from sea level to summit. Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims and a legendary giant, explore the ancient harbour village, climb the cobbled path and ascend to the castle at the top of the island.

Stoop through ancient doorways and glimpse the building’s changing faces – from priory to fortified castle and, since the mid-1600s, home to the St Aubyn family who still live here today. Discover imposing, historic battlements, cannons fired in Napoleonic wars and spectacular views across the bay. 

Please note: Ancient, rugged and steep, some parts of the island and castle can be tricky to navigate if you have limited mobility. Paths around the island are steep, cobbled and uneven with no handrails. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to take a wheelchair or pushchair up to the Mount summit and if you are walking, sensible footwear is recommended.

As a National Trust member you must still book a ticket to visit the Castle, although you will not need to pay.

We’ll ask you to show a printout or electronic (phone) version of your ticket and verify National Trust membership at our Castle checkpoint.

ARRIVAL TIMES

When the sea retreats and the tide is low, walk to the island across our ancient, cobbled causeway. Opening times are listed here

Please note: Boats do not operate in the winter months. If bad weather is forecast, please check the Mount's social media platforms and website for updates about opening times.  Bad weather may result in the late opening of the causeway or the closure of the island.

PARKING

Visitors to the island should use The St Michael’s Mount and Long Stay Marazion car park. During busy periods, there is an overflow car park opposite so that there will always be space for your visit. The postcode for Satnav is TR17 0EG and it may be marked as Folly Field on some maps.

This is an ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) car park, and charges are also payable for National Trust members and disabled badge holders.

LAST ADMISSIONS

Last admissions to the Castle are at least one hour and fifteen minutes before the island closes, although this is weather dependant.

We have created a FAQ section on our website to assist with any questions you might have with regards to a visit at this time. Our privacy policy can be found here.

DOGS

For the last two seasons dogs have been excluded from St Michael’s Mount as part of our response to Covid-19, because we needed to make sure that social distancing could be realistically observed in what is a very small area around the harbour. Visitors have never been able to take their dogs anywhere else on the island.

As part of opening up we decided that we won’t be allowing dogs - other than assistance dogs - back into the harbour.

This was a difficult decision. We know that this will disappoint some visitors. We know how important their dogs are to many people, but it was also clear that for many people, the experience of visiting us has improved as a result of having no dogs around what is a busy harbour area.

Please make a note on your booking if you will be bringing an assistance dog.
