History of a Town

This 15th century listed Ancient Museum is in the main street down to East Looe Sea Front. It has a fascinating display of Looe's history, especially fishing, boat building and, of course, smuggling.

The building itself is a marvellous exhibit as it retains much of its 550 years old original features with ancient cells (complete with prisoners) and the very old raised magistrates benches. As you walk into the upper floor of the building, you are entering the room which, from 1587 to 1878, was the East Looe Town Hall and Magistrates Court.

All sorts of toys, domestic equipment, porcelain, regalia, model boats and much more besides provide interest for all the family.


In the main street heading towards the beach from the town centre.
