There are a few ways to visit Agatha Christie's house and each on is individual.
You can go by steam railway from Paignton to Kingsway and then catch the ferry boat to Greenway up the river Dart.
You can also take the vintage coach from Torquay that takes you through the road route right up to the house itself.
There is a steam railway on certain days that takes you to Greenway and the a walk up to the house.
Or if you are feeling fairly fit and would like a walk through country paths along the river Dart you could catch a bus to Kingsway and walk from there to Greenway.

All three ways are an experience in itself and adds to the delight of visiting the house and grounds of Agatha Christie's. We were lucky enough to visit when there was a pianist playing the ivory keys on the grande piano, which all added to the experience.

We took the 1947 bus from torquay...it takes about half hour and the driver is very informative and quite funny. The house and gardens and views are stunning. There is a tea room with an extensive menu. It is quite expensive but worth it.
