Looe is a small Cornish fishing and dare I say it, tourist friendly, holiday town. It thrives (and survives) because of these two main industries.
As such, Looe doesn’t suffer from the same old high street shops that you tend to see in other seaside towns around the UK. Shopping in Looe is an experience because you probably haven’t seen many of the items the shop keepers have on sale here.
