Where can our Looe taxis meet you?
We can of course pick you up from your home or holiday address, but if you need some landmarks where you could meet a taxi, a few are:- at the foot of the bridge by the Cornish Cross, or in the car park there - there's a phone box and a wall to sit on! - opposite the Swan Hotel (another seat) or the car park by the RNLI shop. Given the narrow nature of the streets it would be well to consider the time of year and number of people about which may have a bearing on how long the driver takes to get through the town!
