St Michael's Mount
ST MICHAEL'S MOUNT CASTLE, GARDENS AND ALL FACILITIES ARE CLOSED
Following the Prime Minister’s advice on Monday 16th March, it is with great sadness that we announce the temporary closure of St Michael’s Mount to the public, effective immediately. This has not been an easy decision and is one that we have made in line with the National Trust’s decision to close all pay-for-entry sites, including houses, cafes and shops.
At this unprecedented time, the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, island residents and staff remain our priority during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We want to thank our incredible team for their understanding and our visitors for their continued support. We hope to reopen our doors in the not too distant future.
Please check our website and social media channels for additional updates. We aim to continue to bring you news and stories from the Mount during this unforeseen closure period.

Stroll across the granite causeway where a legendary giant once walked and follow the footsteps of pilgrims. Boat hop to an island where modern life meets layers of history, discover a medieval castle, a sub-tropical paradise and a close-knit island community. Delve into the history of a fortress, a priory, a harbour and a home.
Stray from the mainland on foot or by boat and get up close to the beguiling beauty of the castle-topped isle standing proud in Mount’s Bay. Come ashore for a family outing, a tour of the castle or a garden visit. Scale the fairytale turrets for dazzling views. Listen to live music on the village green and tuck into fresh local food in the Island Café or the Sail Loft Restaurant.
Infuse your senses with colour and scent in the unique sub-tropical gardens basking in the mild climate and salty breeze. Clinging to granite slopes the terraced beds tier steeply down to the ocean’s edge, boasting tender exotics from places such as Mexico, the Canary Islands and South Africa.
