Stroll across the causeway where a legendary giant once walked, and follow the footsteps of pilgrims to St Michael's Mount. Boat hop to an island where modern life meets layers of history.
Discover a medieval castle, a sub-tropical paradise to explore and a close-knit island community. Delve into the history of a fortress, a priory, a harbour and a home.
Children will be fascinated by the history, legends and myths of St Michael's Mount and they have an entertaining quiz in the castle enabling little ones to explore and learn. There is a pushchair park near the ticket office and they have some hipster seats which can be used free of charge for the climb up to the castle.
From weekly church services to live bands on the village green every Sunday from Spring, St Michael's Mount plays host to a programme of events across the seasons. Come on the Easter Egg hunt in March, the all day celebration of music in May or see the swash-buckling buccaneers on Pirate Fay in August. It is an eventful and lively place with something for all the family.
Just across the street is the Marazion Play Park, offering climbing frames to challenge toddlers through to teenagers.

Feels like a fairytale

At low tide you can walk over to the island via a walkway through the sea, which the kids loved as it felt like a proper adventure. The attraction runs crabbing sessions where groups of kids can go out and explore the little pools that pop up once the water goes down, which looked like great fun. Once on the island you can wander around the grounds and go up to the castle, which was very scenic. There's a lovely cafe in the right hand corner where you can look back at the Marazion seafront and enjoy a Cornish cream tea - it's got to be done! Overall an enjoyable couple of hours pretending we were on a fairytale island. If you don't fancy the walk over, there are little boats that take people back and forwards we didn't do this however as we loved the walk through the water
