Looked for this but not mentioned on tripa dv so put it here. Fanstic. guides highly informative, Beautiful interesting house with archives all about agatha, her life and husband and how that related to her books. the view from the house is to die for. If that couldn't give incentive to write anyway we do not kno what is.

Lovely walk, but many of the sites hard to find and poorly marked. There are some maps, but they were not that helpful.

We visited the Greenway house beforehand which was great. After that, the walk was disappointing. The bust is worth a look but the rest is quite contrived.

A must-to-do, especially if you are a Christie enthusiast like we are. Also others will find the route and places interesting.

I spend a few lovely hours in this house and garden. In a sunny morning of July it was very pleasant to visit the house, and to stay and read on a bench in Agatha Christie's garden. The guides were very friendly and they told us a lot of interesting things about the life of Agatha and her family.

Very pleasant walk on a sunny afternoon. Great for lovers of Agatha Christie novels but there was little signage about the walk, needed a map

We visited Greenway in June. I loved the Agatha Christi books so found going around the house interesting. The guides were friendly and very informative. There were also a lot of chairs around the house that you are allowed to use. You can travel by bus train or ferry. If you go by car you need to pre-book a parking... More

This was disappointing as we spent a lot of time looking for plaques which weren't there (one had been stolen, recovered but left in storage) either make this clear in the guide or sort it out Torquay

Covered most of Torquay, and Greenway was well worth the short journey. Steam train back was brilliant.
