About St Michael’s Mount

The island world of St Michael’s Mount is one of the jewels in Cornwall’s crown. Hop on a boat – or walk across the causeway during low tide – to a community where modern life meets over a thousand years of history.

Home to the St Aubyn family as well as a small community, this iconic island is crowned by a medieval church and castle – with the oldest buildings dating to the 12th century. Immerse yourself in history, wonder at the architecture and discover the legend of Jack the Giant Killer.

Explore the sub-tropical terraced garden and enjoy breath taking views of Mount’s Bay.
