Agatha Christie's Riviera

Since the early 20th century, Agatha Christie has been thrilling readers and TV audiences with her gripping stories of crime and mystery.

The statistics behind her life are impressive enough. In her 85 years she wrote more than 80 books, many of them bestsellers, altogether selling an estimated two billion copies worldwide and making her the best-selling fiction author of all time. Her global appeal is testified to by the fact that her stories have been translated into more than 45 languages.

From the intricately plotted storylines and wonderfully created settings of a bygone England, to her two colourful detective characters – Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot - Christie’s work has captured the imaginations of subsequent generations, and continues to be frequently adapted for TV and film.

Discover Agatha Christie’s Riviera

But the true story of Agatha Christie’s life is every bit as intriguing and fascinating as her books, and nowhere can you get closer to her legacy than on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay. Christie was born in the Riviera town of Torquay, and spent many of the most important chapters of her life here, as well as using real places in the area as settings for her murder mysteries.

From the Agatha Christie Mile to the Agatha Christie Festival and visits to her beloved estate at Greenway, the English Riviera is the place to discover the real Christie. Let this site be your guide to planning your Agatha Christie break, from arranging accommodation to organising your itinerary.
