Lord St Levan and the National Trust gladly welcome you to visit St Michael's Mount.
Originally the site of a Benedictine priory, the dramatic castle on top of this famous rocky island dates from the 12th century. It was converted into a private house in the 17th century and contains fascinating early rooms, an armoury, a rococo Gothic drawing room and, at the highest point, a 14th-century church.
The terraced and walled gardens have been planted with many tender and exotic rare plants; a tour may be arranged by appointment.
The gardens are not usually shown to the public on weekdays, except during the time of the Cornwall Gardens Festival.
