Visited over Easter, beware this is an extremely popular place, and on reaching the castle took 1 hour to get in. Very steep slippery path up to the castle, not ideal for those with walking difficulties.
However, once in, it has some wonderful rooms and full of history, a good day out. Owned by the National Trust, so get a card in advance.

Get the tides right in Marazion and walk across the causeway which leads to the St Michael's Mount island.
You can either walk back or come back by boat. Very interesting house, gardens, good cafe and even has its' own pub.
Best of all it is free to National Trust members.

Recommended by my colleague who has young children. This place is well worth a visit and making a special trip. We got there before low tide and waited an hour in the beach for the causeway to appear. It appeared like magic and the children loved the enchanted feel of the whole thing including the magic castle on top of the hill. We are NT members so didn’t need to pay. I would definitely do the trip up the castle to see the views, it’s absolutely breath taking. They had plenty of activities for the kids -rock pooling to find crabs, treasure hunt around the castle etc. I even had the privilege of talking to Lady St Levan at the gift shop without realising! We missed the load tide going back by about 15 mins and thought it hilarious watching people getting to the middle and thinking twice about crossing. Boat ride back was great fun for adults and children alike. The beach is very course so would highly recommend wellies. Parking was £4.50 for the whole day which I think It’s a really good deal and we easily spent a whole day there.

First visit for a long time and it is still one of the most amazing places to see. More things to see and do since our last visit.
