Marazion & St. Michaels Mount – a 50 to 60 minute walk (2.5 miles)


Is accessed by the surfaced and even coastal path between Penzance and Marazion. It is a lovely walk, cycle ride or jog and certainly one to have on your itinerary.
Marazion is an ancient market town and is a great place to visit any time of the year- sea views, beach walks and stunning views of the impossibly romantic castle of St. Michael’s Mount, perched atop an ancient island, just 500 metres from the coast.

Plenty of galleries, art and gift shops, cafes, puts and restaurant.
