St. Micheals Mount is a rare sight. Its not often that you find a castle on a tiny island such as this.

Either accessed by boat or on foot, depending on the tide, this makes for a fantastic day out.

Historic experience in lovely Marazion. You can either walk across the causeway when the tide is out or take the boats/amphi-vehicle. A must see!

Beautiful tidal island with a climb up to a medieval castle and church. There are gardens as well. At the base of the island is a village and harbour, still inhabited by a small community of around 30 people. Great views and very interesting local history. It is all owned by the National Trust, so…
