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.

Great train trip to avoid parking at Looe, but don't bother with Looe if you don't have to, over commercialised, too much traffic jumping lights and causing chaos in the narrow streets.

A lovely little 2 carriage railway from Liskeard to Looe. Sadly a diesel train not steam but still feels like a trip back in time. A fairly picturesque landscape passes by in the approx 30 mins into Looe which is then followed by a short...More

Lovely scenic journey if trains are running ( if they haven't broken down) Looe is a picturesque fishing town but unfortunately lives on its past glories
