Marazion is perhaps better known as the stepping-off point for the fairytale isle of St Michael's Mount. From Celtic times, pilgrims and visitors have come to this small village on Mounts Bay to take the ferry or wait for the tide and walk the 600 yards of causeway. Marazion itself is Cornwall's oldest town, it was granted a charter by Henry III in 1257, and its tin and copper were exported until the late 19th century. There are a collection of cottages on the hillside above the water's edge with a few shops, Inns, a church and a couple of hotels.
