The Old Guildhall Museum and Gaol is contained in a 15th Century listed building with a fascinating display of Looe’s past.

This includes fishing & boat building, smuggling, Looe Island, the Looe Valley Railway Line, tourism, World War II and court room regalia

​The building itself is a marvellous exhibit on its own, as it retains many of its medieval features, with ancient cells and the original raised magistrates bench, complete with the Royal Coat of Arms, from when the local court was held there.
