The Looe Valley Line links the bustling market town of Liskeard with the picturesque fishing port of Looe.

The journey to Looe is full of beautiful views out of the train window. The wooded valley teeming with wildlife opens up to glorious estuary views as the river meets the sea.

Bird watchers will love this line as, especially at low tide, the river is full of wading birds such as Little Egrets, Grey Herons, Oystercatchers and Curlews.

Once in Looe, there’s plenty to explore. Safe beaches, quality accommodation, excellent restaurants and a maze of narrow streets full of lovely independent shops and pubs.

Dogs are welcome on the train.
