Regular bus services run to and from Liskeard and Plymouth and the scenic Looe Valley Line, an 8.5 mile stretch of railway, follows the river through the valleys between Looe and Liskeard where you can join the mainline services that connect you to the rest of the country; Exeter (90 mins), Bristol (2 hours) and London (4 hours).
Where to start? Looe is bursting with pubs and restaurants! Along the main street in East Looe there is a variety of cuisine and eateries including Thai restaurant “Ocean and Earth”. There’s also a Chinese and two Indian restaurants as well as the quirky, local restaurants and cafes, many of which offer fresh same-day catch that the fishermen have bought back to the local working quay.
You won’t go thirsty either, there is a widespread choice of pubs and bars to go for a drink whether you want somewhere to watch the boats returning to the harbour, listen to a live band or enjoy a “shanty” night. A seaside venue is never complete without a fish and chip shop with Looe boasting five! If you fancy a change of scenery, near-by Polperro is famed for it’s restaurants and annual feast-week.
