I really looking forward to visit this place because of the causeway! hahaha...
The castle looked so majestic, on its own island, high on the hill.
We didn't go inside though. I am sure it is pretty and all.
Toilet on the castle ground are very clean and posh. There are quite a number of cafes. We did try a proper cornish tea with scone and cornish cream..delicious!

Parking is easy – there are two seafront car parks (fee payable) in the village of Marazion. As you approach the town from the west (the sea will be on your right), the Folly Field car park and the Slipway car park are right next to the beach, facing St Michael’s Mount. 

Address: TR17 0EF
Directions: From Penzance, Follow the A30 east, and about 3 miles out of Penzance take the third exit at the roundabout, signposted Marazion. Follow this road and turn left at the junction with the main road. This road takes you into Marazion.
