Bodmin Moor's rolling countryside, mining heritage sites, dramatic tors and prehistoric monuments welcomes visitors to the Cornish market town of Liskeard. On the Cornish Main Line, the town's station is also the junction for the Looe Valley Line - a community railway which travels down through a wooded valley before following right alongside the East Looe River and emerging at the popular seaside town and fishing port of Looe.
The original 1859 Isambard Kingdom Brunel building still stands, but it got a glass-extension upgrade in 2004, which went on to win rail and heritage awards. Opposite the station is the Stag Inn pub, and about a 15-minute walk away, or five minutes by bus, is the town centre with a range of shops, pubs and eateries in striking Victorian buildings. A 13-minute walk north of the station will take visitors to Liskeard Cattle Market and Liskeard Pannier Market, both filled with local produce and vintage treats.
