Liskeard, an ancient Stannary and market town at the head of the Looe river valley in southeast Cornwall, UK, is the administrative centre of the Caradon District.

The town is situated about 14 miles west of the Tamar river. The main London to Penzance railway line and the A38 trunk road provide the town with rapid access to Plymouth, the rest of Cornwall and the motorway network.

Within easy reach to the south of Liskeard are the coves and resorts of the south Cornish coast, whilst the vast rugged expanse of Bodmin Moor lies to the north.
