Family Day Out in Cornwall – St. Michaels Mount

Another great idea for a Day Out when on family holiday in Cornwall, UK

About a 45 minute drive down South is the National Trust St. Michaels Mount.  Set in the village of Marazion, St. Michaels mount is a rocky island crowned by medieval church and castle, home to a living community.

Park in the large car park and walk across the beach towards the village enjoying spectacular views of the mount and far reaching coast line.

 Enjoy a stroll around the village, small shops and galleries and make your way back over to the mount.

At high tide boats operate constantly at a small charge.  At low tide you can walk the uncovered causeway. Once on the island enjoy a light lunch & a beer at the Sail Loft Restaurant before buying tickets & heading up to explore the castle and grounds.  

On the walk back let the kids enjoy the small funfair that operates in the car park. Ideal for a Day out with the children when on family holiday in Cornwall, UK.
