Looe is situated on both sides of the River Looe. The two towns are joined together by a bridge across the river. In medieval times East Looe and West Looe were separate towns. East Looe includes the harbour and the main shopping centre. West Looe is quieter but also has shops, restaurants and hotels. They are joined by a seven arched bridge, built in 1853. The seaside town of Looe keeps visitors entertained all year round whilst still retaining a working fishing port. It has been a holiday resort for more than 200 years, and has relayed more heavily on the tourist industry since its pilchard canning factory closed in the sixties. The town prides itself on it's fresh fish, and award-winning fish and chips near the river, or gourmet menus in smart restaurants overlooking the harbour.
The South West Coast Path passes through the town, and there are numerous rambles through the countryside, or along the two rivers that flow inland.
