Agatha Christie Walking Tours

Walks available until 17 September


Even if you've never read an Agatha Christie novel, watched a film, or seen her plays, it doesn't matter! Join this tour to hear the story of Agatha's truly remarkable life

Guests will be enthralled to listen to her early years growing up in Torquay, how she met Archie Christie and her voluntary work as a nurse during World War 1. The tours will also explain how she drew inspiration from her time in Torquay and the Middle East to create her legendary characters and plots. Of course, no tour would be complete without touching on Agatha’s disappearance in 1926 and her enormous contribution to entertain the Home Front during World War 2.
