The majority of shops in Marazion are aimed at the tourists who visit St Michael's Mount, including a handful of galleries. There is a pharmacy, a Post Office come general store and a bakery, but most useful shops tend to be in Penzance. Between Marazion and Penzance there are a selection of supermarkets.
One of the most instantly recognizable landmarks in the country, St Michael's Mount is a National Trust property, family home, island community and entrancing visitor destination all in one. In 1954 Francis St Aubyn (the third Lord St Levan) gave most of St Michael's Mount to the National Trust, along with a large endowment fund for its upkeep. He retained a 999 year lease for the family to live in the castle and a licence to show the historical rooms to the visiting public.
It will take you around 10 to 15 minutes to walk across the causeway from Marazion to the ticket station at the entrance to the Mount. The National Trust recommend three hours to visit all there is to see, including the gardens.
Access to the castle itself is via a sttep and uneven path. This is difficult for visitors with limited mobility although there are some benches along the route to the summit which can be used as a resting stop.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to take wheelchairs or pushchairs up to the castle and even going across the causeway can be difficult.
No, not unless you are a National Trust member. Also, you now have to book in advance, even to get on the island. (November 2022)
