As a big fan of Christie, I was really excited for this tour. I would have appreciated more information at times - quite a few of the points didn't have plaques and little additional information, which would have been nice. The museum was a definite highlight, with lots of artefacts and props etc, and we were also given a reduction... More

We went to Torque in July 2014 and decided to visit Agatha Christi’s House and Garden called as “Greenway House and Garden” on the third day. As the Greenway House is far away from Torque and we did not have a car, we were looking for options to go there. While searching through Internet, we found that there is a... More

The house although interesting was shrouded in scaffolding was well worth the visit. We booked a car park space and didn't use the train, ferry or bus as one of our party is disabled

If you are at all interested in Poirot, Miss Marple or Agatha Christie in general you will enjoy all that Torquay offers, from the walk along the seafront to The Grand Hotel where she honeymooned to the Rock Walk high over the Bay. Take a 1940's vintage bus tour or open topped double decker bus.

The gardens are so beautifully maintained and simply lovely to walk around - warning a bit up hill and downdale for those people with problems walking distance... More

Greenway feels as if the Mallowan family just stepped away and allowed the guests to tour the home. It is a wonderful glimpse into their lives on holiday. The collections of china, books, and other artifacts are a delight to view. The grounds could almost require a second trip to really see them all. We chose to ride the vintage... More
