Great walk

This is a very special and nostalgic walk as I tread the very route that Agatha Christie did 100 years ago. I even got to see her famous bust!!

Not easy to find it, but with patience and a good navigator you could arrive at Agatha's Holidays house. Discover the atmosphere of one of the best suspance's writer is very interesting and engaging. You must go there.

It gives an oversight of events in her life to add to the interest of her in general. Where she stayed where she listened to the Wagner concert at the Oavilion.

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
