A beautiful sunny day by the sunny

We enjoyed a lovely trip by train to Looe (3 adults and 2 children cost in total approx. £10 return). It's about a 10 minute walk from the station to the town but there is lots of lovely shops, quaint narrow streets and activities for children. We went on a trip out to see on a glass bottom boat, but didn't see anything below the water! Crabbing is very popular and a simple kit cost £3 and kept the children entertained for quite a while. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Courtyard Bistro. A quick visit to the beach and an ice cream back to the train completed a great day out.

Very scenic journey

A very pretty little branch line that drops dramatically down through the wooded valley. There is always plenty of bird life and wading fowl on the water as you go by, and the walk into Looe from the station is short and level. Highly recommended, lots of pubs and restaurants in Looe make it a nice winter's day trip, with a pub lunch by a real fire an added bonus! You can get off at some of the little stops on the way and do circular walks from those stations.

Great short train journey for the kids to enjoy en route to the beach at Looe. Hot day (no a/c on the train) and was completely packed on the carriages.
