Adventure - There are dozens of ways visitors can find an adventure when staying in Liskeard. Spend a few thrilling hours at Adrenaline Quarry in Menheniot, a ten-minute drive from the centre of town. Here, you can throw yourself off a cliff and fly over the flooded quarry on the zip wire, experience the sensation of freefalling on the giant swing, unleash your inner F1 driver at go-karting, and even throw some axes. Horse riding is a more sedate but no less enjoyable way to get your blood pumping, or why not clip on some carabiners and climb Dewerstone and Sheeps Tor.
The South West Coast Path is the UK’s longest way-marked footpath, hugging the entire coast for 630 miles from Swanage in the south-east around to Minehead in the west, providing stunning views along the way. Equally beautiful are the views from the Caradon Trail, which connects Liskeard to Bodmin Moor. Cyclists and mountain bikers can also plan an adventure, with maps, spares parts and bike hire available from Liskeard Cycles.
Beautiful beaches - Liskeard is close to some of the most beautiful beaches in Great Britain. Looe is less than ten miles from town, where there is a vast expanse of sand at low tide, a seafront promenade and pier, and calm waters that are ideal for swimming. Looe can get busy in summer so make like the locals and go to the smaller beach east of the main stretch of sand. An even quieter alternative is Lantic Bay, which is owned by the National Trust and only accessible via a 20-minute walk from the car park (it's a steep climb down!), while Llasallos is a favourite with families. Talland Bay has something for everyone with a sandy beach, rock pools and a cafe, Seaton Beach is dog-friendly, and Whitsand Bay has the best conditions for surfing, kiteboarding and windsurfing.
Culture and heritage - Introduce yourself to Liskeard with a walk along the Liskeard Heritage Trail, a stroll that typically takes 90-minutes and which passes important landmarks in the town like the Pipe Well in Well Lane, which never runs dry. Those interested in architecture should follow the Henry Rice Trail, explicitly created to showcase over 100 buildings designed by the famous Victorian architect. Liskeard was a quiet rural community until 1836 when the discovery of copper made the town’s fortunes and size expand rapidly. Not only was Liskeard a retail hub but it was also a spot where tin was stamped and taxed, and the starting point of the canal to Looe (later followed by the railway) which was used to send the stone and mined ore to ships. Visitors can find out more about the town’s history at the Liskeard Heritage Centre in Stuart House, and the Liskeard Museum.
The Caradon area was once a hive of industry, with mines producing enormous amounts first of tin, then later of copper, lead and silver. The landscape is dotted with engine houses, and the entire region is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Liskeard has so much to offer visitors including a weekly market, excellent choice of amenities and a location that is close to beautiful beaches and favourite attractions.
