Liskeard is an ancient market town easily reached from the railway station by a 10 minute walk.
The best time to travel
On sunny summer days the late-morning train to Looe (departing Liskeard at 11 15 Mon-Fri, 11 13 Sat and 11 25 Sun) can be very busy. The departures one hour either side of this can also be somewhat busy, as can the mid-afternoon departures back to Liskeard. It’s worth considering travelling outside of these times to avoid the crowds – especially during the school holidays. Look up train times.
