Old Sardine Factory Heritage Centre


Places to Visit

The Heritage Centre is located in The Old Sardine Factory on the Quay in West Looe. 

Your visit to the Heritage Centre offers a unique experience immersing you in Looe; the story of the harbour, river and bridges. Plus all about Sardines!  And importantly all about the very backbone of our community - fishing, boats, flood defences, also the many characters who lived and worked here, and of course those who continue to do so. 

Book online or drop in and buy tickets for the Heritage Centre directly at the Old Sardine Factory on the Quay in West Looe.

Tickets are just £5 for a family tickets (up to 6 people) and £3 for two people

There is currently a one-way system and reduced capacity, so you may have a short wait to enter the Heritage Centre to ensure social distancing. 

Why not enjoy coffee & cake, or a hot snack in our Coffee Shop whilst you wait. Or browse the Heritage Centre shop - with a selection of gifts, books …and tinned Cornish sardines…yum!

Our popular family craft workshops will be back in the school summer holidays

Meanwhile, we offer you takeaway craft packs to take home for making either 'Jiggly Jellyfish' or 'Wobbly Whales' for £3 per pack (or £5 for two packs). All craft materials and instructions included - the proceeds go to our Heritage Centre charity.
