A trip to Cornwall is not complete without a visit to the breath-taking historical icon that is St. Michael’s Mount. The island, managed by the National Trust, is rooted in thousands of years of history, all of which can be explored whilst walking through the ancient corridors and architecture of the castle, home to the St Aubyn family for many centuries.
This Cornish landmark can be accessed by boat or on foot, depending on the tide. The attraction welcomes visitors from April to October, weekdays and most weekends. Old or young, there is an abundance of things to see and do at St. Michael’s Mount, and therefore planning your visit is recommended. Aside from roaming the medieval castle, there are beautiful gardens and the village and harbour too. And of course, the views of the bay, Land’s End and the Lizard Peninsula from atop of the mount’s summit, are spectacular and not to be missed. Discovering the legend of Jack the Giant Killer, a young boy who supposedly brawled and killed the giant Cormoran, will fascinate both children and adults alike.
