Looe station is the terminus of the scenic Looe Valley Line in southeast Cornwall. The station was opened in December of 1860 to carry goods traffic, before expanding to take in passenger services in the late 1870s. All trains leave the station toward Liskeard, and the line between the two is a designated Community Rail route, supported by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership. The walk into Looe is a pleasant one, with East Looe and West Looe rivers providing a backdrop of green valleys and bobbing fishing boats.
Once in the town, you'll find beautiful beaches and a maze of narrow streets, home to many independent shops, pubs and restaurants. West Looe is famed for its striking cliff face, which leads to a small cluster of guest houses and pubs, whereas East Looe boasts a broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier. Both areas are popular with tourists all year round.
