The history of both Looe & Polperro date back many centuries… please bear with us whilst we collate a timeline and photographs for you to learn more about our history from the days of smuggling & pressgangs, to the importance the two ports played over the years in the rich heritage & culture of Cornwall.

Until we have that information ready for you; you can learn more about the history of Looe in the Old Guildhall Museum and also The Old Sardine Factory Heritage Centre

In Polperro, explore the village’s history at the Polperro Heritage Museum
