Looe Tips

Looe is an old seafaring town with a long history of fishing and smuggling. Just 17 miles west of Plymouth. East and West Looe are split by the river running out to sea with a landmark seven arched stone bridge linking the two sides. The town 'centre' is at East Looe, with its cobbled streets, quaint cottages, shops and the busy fishing harbour.
