The Agatha Christie Tour

Update from Unique Devon Tours

Agatha Christie, Days out, Devon, places to visit, Torquay

Agatha Christie

This tour offers you a fabulous day out, allowing you to follow in the footsteps of Agatha Christie. It includes many locations from Agatha’s childhood, such as the beaches of Torquay, where she spent a great deal of her spare time, and locations from her early adulthood, including the pier, the Pavilion and several other places. Later in the day a visit to Greenway is in order, Agatha’s beautiful holiday home, and naturally the day ends with a traditional Devonshire cream tea!

 

During the day, you will see locations that Agatha used in her stories, and hear more about the fictional characters that frequented these places. A private talk at the Potent Plant garden at Torre Abbey by the head gardener, herself a huge Agatha fan, will give you more background about the plants that Agatha had learnt about during WW1 as a pharmaceutical dispenser, and helped shape her stories.

This is a stimulating and varied day that incorporates many beautiful and interesting locations, all relevant to the greatest of crime writers, Agatha Christie, who still sells more than three million books a year worldwide, nearly 40 years after her death. This tour isn’t available every day since Greenway isn’t open every day, and sometimes the head gardener at Torre Abbey isn’t available. However, certain aspects of the tour are always available, and it can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.
