View from St Michael's Mount
A view from St Michael's Mount, past the harbour and causeway towards Marazion. The tide is not yet fully risen, there are still a few people wading across the causeway towards the mainland.
St Michael's Mount

St Michaelís Mount dominates Mount's Bay; it rises majestically almost 230 feet from sea level to the tower, chapel and battlement of the castle.

An island at high tide, from the great flood in 3000 BC, the Mount is now operated by the National Trust. It features a harbour, shops and a restaurant as well as the castle and gardens which are open to the public on certain days. Situated approximately 500 yards offshore, the Mount is reached by a causeway at low tide or by small ferry boats which operate between Marazion and the Mount's harbour at high tide.
