Not to be confused with the Mont Saint-Michel in France, St. Michael's Mount has a lot in common with its more famous name sake.

Photo above - High tide causes the undulation of the causeway which connects the island to the mainland.

I have wanted to visit Mont Saint-Michel for years, so when I read about the similar St. Michael's Mount I worked it in to our travel plans.

Information at the National Trust

 


Photo Above - The Castle is the home of Lord St. Levan but is owned and administered by the National Trust.

During high tide access to the island is by boat but during low tied, foot crossing is possible by the stone causeway.

Photo Above - at low tide the stone causeway allows access to the island.

No photography is allow in the castle which is filled with antiques.

In the 12th century a church was established on the mount and was administered under the authority of Mont Saint-Michel.

The Victorian section of the castle was build in the 19th. century.

Visit Avebury Standing Stones or check out the Eden Project.
