“Great House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

We travelled the mile on a 1947 Leyland bus which is part of the tour to visit Agatha Christie's summer house in Torquay. I loved it as it is still te way she left it and all her memorabilia is there includingone of her typewriters. A must for Agatha fans, do not miss it.

“Old world Charm.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

We had the pleasure of having lunch at The Grand Hotel, on the sea front in Torquay. From what we understand Agatha Christie spent many a hour enjoying the hospitality of the hotel in the library area, whilst working on her novels.
The food was excellent and the service first class. A must do.

“TORQQUAY MUSEUM NOT A PLACE TO MISS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

Made a firm effort to visit this attraction, where as well as a most detailed resume and well illustrated display of the Life and works of Agatha Christe, we enjoyed a very educaitonal and pleasing exhibtion and explanation of Egyptology and those who went there to bring back the information displayed here.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2011

Greenway is a fantastic place to visit and the house is not a museum but depicts the life of Agatha Christie and her family over many years
