Divided by the River Looe and nestling on steep hillsides, the town is made up of two parts, East Looe and West Looe.  A pretty place, with bridge connecting East and West, Looe is a little less sophisticated than the likes of nearby Fowey and Polperro.  However, that’s all part of the appeal for many - it’s a good old-fashioned seaside resort, where fish and chips, amusement arcades, and bucket and spades are all part of the offering.  With a good stock of accommodations, restaurants, and shops, and a selection of nearby beaches, Looe is a great location from which to explore this sometimes-overlooked corner of the county.
