Agatha Christie Bust (1 Jan 2022 - 31 Dec 2022)

About

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890, and the English Riviera celebrated her centenary with the creation of a hand-crafted bronze bust in her likeness. The bust sits on Palk Street, on the Agatha Christie Mile, and close to the beautiful Edwardian Pavilion where her first husband Archie Christie proposed to her following a Wagner concert.

Created by Dutch sculptor Carol Van Den Boom-Cairns, it is the only one anywhere in the world, and was unveiled by her daughter, Rosalind Hicks.

The Agatha Christie Mile runs along Torquay seafront between the Imperial and Grand Hotels and features a number of landmarks signifcant in the author’s life and works. For more Agatha Christie sites, explore the Agatha Christie Literary Trail through the English Riviera and South Devon, which reveals the inspirations she took from the local area and featured in her novels.
