Brilliant and informative.

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

This "mile" desperately needs some signage. You kind of stumble upon it, if you are lucky and then wander around for what may be more than a mile. Even though we had a list of places from various guidebooks, were never able to find everything we wanted to see. Even find the Abbey was just by happenstance. It seems a... More

We walked the A.C. mile not much info so researched it first. (We did the walk on our own and at our own pace, didnt take an organised tour). Walking from point-point was good exercise and we enjoyed the route especially on a sunny day! Had a fabulous day visiting Agatha's summer house and gardens at Greenway now that is... More

I enjoyed the Walk, but sadly the guide book I had, was a few years old and some of the stuff it meted had closed down. But a lovely walk along the seafront.

Basically it gets you walking a mile between two hotels. They take you thoufht all the landmarks of Torquay, so for that, its good. Not a lot of information out there, so google it up first

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
