Wanderlust Wednesday: St Michael’s Mount, Cornwall

After the last location being Mont Saint-Michel this time we have the English counterpart.

Over the centuries the Mount has been a fortress, a priory, a place of worship and finally a family home which it remains today. In 1954 the family went into partnership with the National Trust and the Mount has been open to visitors ever since. It has been used as Dracula’s castle in the 1979 film and has also made appearances in Johnny English and Never Say Never Again. A lot of the fun is getting there, depending on the tides you either can wade over on the causeway or go by boat. When Zack and I visited we were one of the last to leave by walking back, it was a lot of fun even though at one point the water was above our knees.
