welcome to Marazion

An ancient town

The ancient market town of Marazion is a great place to visit at any time of the year. Safe, sandy beaches are lapped by the clear, turquoise waters of Mount's Bay and guarded by the island fortress of St Michael's Mount.

Enjoy a pasty while taking in the view of the bay or treat yourself to a meal at one of Marazion's high-quality restaurants and cafes. Marazion is also home to a fabulous selection of art galleries and unique gift shops. There is a handy convenience store and post office as well as a well-stocked chemists.

Mount's Bay is one of the UK's premier locations for kitesurfing and Marazion is home to very active sailing and gig racing clubs. Stand up paddleboarding lessons and hire are available from the beach in the summer months. Cycle hire is available locally from Land's End Cycle Hire. A lovely RSPB nature reserve is situated on the western side of the town.

About St Michael's Mount

Follow the footsteps of the pilgrims across the causeway or take a ferry boat to St Michael's Mount where you can discover a castle full of myths and legends, fabulous sub-tropical gardens and a real working island community. The castle is usually floodlit on Tuesday and Sunday evenings, you can't fail to see it from Mount View! The lights, especially reflected in a calm sea, make it appear as if it is floating in the air.

The island is always open, subject to the tide of course. The castle itself is managed by the National Trust, find out more at
