St. Michaels Mount Garden
St Michaels Mount has superb subtropical gardens and you can also visit the castle.
The semi sub tropical Gardens which partially surround this spectacular medieval castle and church have been improved over recent years.
The castle at St Michaels Mount is set on a rocky island about half a mile from the mainland and can be reached by a causeway or by ferry if the tide is in.
Part of the gardens are on terraces climbing up around 200 feet, these were built around the 1870s. The terraces remind me of some of the gardens we have seen in Italy with many exotic and semi tropical plants.
Recent developments include a wild flower meadow where swallows dive above the wild flowers for insects.
The gardens are not extensive but are worth a visit especially if combined with a visit inside the fascinating castle.
