The 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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day trip to Looe for £4.40 day return. Parked at the station for £1.20 Saved parking problems and queues on the return trip. Excellent resort for the children.

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

We were going to Looe and decided to park the car at Liskeard and take the train - much cheaper and we had been warned that the streets in Looe are difficult to negotiate. Train trip is pleasant - lots to see - pleasant rural...More

A short but very pretty trip from looe to liskeard. Follow the advice, travel at a high tide to see the estuary at its best, even better travel in the autumn as the trees are turning. It is only a 30 minute trip and includes...More

We were originally going to travel from Looe to Liskeard, but consulting timetables and researching parking reversed our plans. Park at Liskeard, it is £1 all day next to the platform, or free if the meter is broken as we found. The diesel unit meanders...More

Absolutely beautiful scenic railway journey that takes you alongside the river ending in the port of Looe near the harbour. History lovers will notice the remains of the Liskeard and Looe Union Canal whic fell into disuse after the introduction of the railway. Nature watchers...More
