Overview
More
The scenic Looe Valley Line links the bustling market town of Liskeard with the picturesque fishing port of Looe. The train journey is full of beautiful views out of the train window, as the wooded valley teaming with wildlife opens up to glorious estuary views as the river meets the sea. Looe itself is a much-loved seaside destination that’s full of character. It prides itself on its safe beaches for swimming and sunbathing, restaurants that specialise in fresh local ingredients, and a maze of narrow streets full of small independent shops to discover.

It's 26 years since my wife and I last visited Looe and to do so we decided to take the train from Liskeard having driven there from North Devon. The station was easy to find and ample parking was available at just £1.30p after 10am,...More

we would say this is the most beautiful section of track in the country and always do the line when we're nearby on holiday.

A short journey through lovely Cornish countryside and ending at the busy little fishing cum tourist coastal town of Looe. Just one carriage but plenty of space at this time of year to move around and take photos. We used our Senior railcards which made...More

Park in the station car park and buy train tickets together if arriving by car. Much cheaper to park here for the day than in town. Disregard any traffic issues as you slowly slip down the line to the sea. Trains run on the hour...More

A must do journey, easy cheap parking in Liskeard and a very scenic journey. Much better than having the hassle of finding parking in Looe. Comfortable and clean. Ask the guard in Liskeard which side of the train to sit for the best views of...More

We took the train from Liskeard where there was plentiful parking, down to Looe for lunch and a potter about. Nice views of the coastline (but my 2.5 year old was far more excited by putting the tray tables up...and down...and up... gah!) We were...More

We flagged down the little train and travelled into Liskeard. There are two museums and a fantastic cafe called the green frog. Don't go on a Sunday though as we found out there is nothing open!

Did the 30 minute journey as I'd heard about it via Tripadvisor. Glad we did. We timed our journey to Liskeard as near to high tide as possible as advised and we loved it. There are parts where you really feel like you're driving through...More
