As one of Cornwall’s most iconic landmarks St Michael’s Mount makes a great day out. The dramatic castle is perched on top of a tidal island which is separated from the mainland by 500 metres of water at high tide. If the tide is low it is possible to walk over the ancient cobbled causeway to the island, and if the tide is in it is just a short boat ride over to the island. Once on the island there is plenty to explore including the castle, the harbour, and the beautiful gardens.
