Live Webcams in Looe

Watch live webcams in the beautiful coastal town and civil parish of Looe in south-east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, with a population of 5,280. This particular live cam comes to you from the The Portbyhan Hotel facing the Looe Harbour. Looe’s rapid ascension as a town is due to it being one of Cornwall’s largest ports. It exported local tin, arsenic, and granite as well as being well known for its fishing and boat building industries. Historical records confirm the town provided 20 ships for the famous siege of Calais in 1347.

Looe has a reputation for procuring excellent fresh fish. The town is also a centre for shark fishing, and is home to the Shark Angling Club of Great Britain. Looe is 20 miles west of Plymouth and seven miles south of Liskeard, divided in two by the River Looe, East Looe and West Looe being connected by a bridge. Looe developed as two separate towns each with MPs and its own mayor.

The town centres around a small harbour and along the steep-sided valley of the River Looe which flows between East and West Looe to the sea beside a sandy beach. Offshore to the west, opposite the stonier Hannafore Beach, lies Looe Island.
