Loved it all please allow a full day to enjoy the Greenway experience a National Trust Property of great distinction. To get there catch the vintage bus from lots of locations or arrive by steam train or boat.There is very limited car parking and you need to pre book if you wish to take your car.

We recently booked a trip on the Vintage bus tour to Greenway House. What a fantastic day (although shame the heavens opened and stayed open). We boarded an old vintage bus, the driver Chris was a lovely man who gave us a really informative commentary throughout the journey from Torquay to Greenway House. Although he wasn’t a local he knew... More

The old bus taking you to the mansion was great. The bus driver was very informative about the history and attractions to visit around Torquay. The house was interesting and enjoyed looking around.The gardens were interesting and enjoyed the day.

OK ! - Torquay is very big in the Agatha Christie World ... even if your not an ardent fan, the " mile " is worth a look and it's free - you MUST pick up the free flyer from the Tourist office or downwnload it from there website. Basically you wander round different points of Torquay which have reference... More

The Vintage Bus with its driver giving a very informative commentary during the journey from Torquay was worth the fare. It is the easiest way to visit Greenway. The house was full of interest and the guides in the rooms more than willing to answer questions. The gardens and walkways made the visit very enjoyable There is a tea room... More

We decided to view Agatha Christies house from the river, we took a river cruise boat from Dartmouth and took in the whole of the area by boat. We thought this was well worth the money and saw much more of the area than by driving.

we went to Greenway by vintage bus and the whole thing was amazing, the café was very nice and the house is full of memories and items that belonged to Agatha Christie and her family. the vintage bus is by far the best way to get to greenway as you have to book a parking slot prior to going

To be honest we were very impressed with the Agatha Christie mile. Some spurious links to the great lady is such a shame that impressive buildings such as the pavilion is in disrepair . I feel it's a massive opportunity missed.
