Looe

The walk from Polperro to Looe via coastal footpath is the highlight of many peoples visit to Polperro, wonderful views. (Allow 2.5 to 3.00 hours each way) Be warned, you could get hooked on walking cliff paths! 5 miles by coastal path or road. A bustling fishing harbour and seaside town, it can be very busy in summer. A seven-arched bridge joins the towns of East Looe and West Looe.

East Looe has more facilities and a sandy beach, but West Looe does have two pubs and some general shops including a post office. The Discovery Centre at Millbrook carpark is also worth a visit: it is a centre, which encourages sustainable tourism. Maps and walking literature are available there, plus a wealth of information on the East Cornwall area.

The scenic Looe Valley Railway Line runs to Liskeard and is undoubtedly one of the prettiest in the country. As well as being popular with enthusiasts (this single track has a very steep gradient, and the conductor has to get out midway to change the points to enable the train to go "backwards" - all great fun!}, it links Looe to the main Penzance - Plymouth line, and onwards to London the Midlands and the North.
