Parked the car in Liskeard and took this delightful train into Looe. Much nicer than trying to find a carpark and reasonably priced for two adults and two children return.

Well worth the cheap fare to get to Looe. We spent most the day in Looe, the station is only a 5/10 min walk away from the main centre.

Chug past the little hamlets on the way to Looe, and then be surprised by the relative large size of the town itself as you take the last turn round the forested hill. Look carefully out the windows - I saw a fawn and a...More

As it was raining we decided to try the Looe Valley Line. You pay on the train and, at £4.80 return it is good value. If the sun had been shining it would have been spectacular but even though it had turned to liquid sunshine...More

This is a delight. We came by train from Newton Abbot, and this quaint little railway starts at Liskeard. It takes you to the centre of Looe, so is one of the few Cornish villages which are linked to the railway system. The views are...More

Park and Ride at Liskeard as the car parking at Looe Station only holds about ten cars. The main car park in East Looe fills up very early but the main car park in West Looe (over the bridge) is large and cheaper.
