About Us

Drift back into the style and opulence of the Jazz Age as you retrace the steps of the world’s best-selling author along Torquay’s seafront. Starting at either the Imperial Hotel or the Grand Hotel, the Agatha Christie Mile takes you to some of the places that were inspirational in her life and works, with seven unique plaques to find along way.

Places to look out for include:
The Grand Hotel – Where Agatha spent her honeymoon night with Archie Christie on Christmas Eve 1914. .
Torre Abbey Gardens – Home of the Agatha Christie’s Potent Plants collection inspired by the poisons and potions in her books.
Princess Pier – A favourite spot of Agatha’s for roller-skating, and built in the same year she was born.
Princess Gardens on Torquay's seafront promenade – Feature in the ABC Murders.
The Pavilion – It was after attending a Wagner concert here that Archie Christie proposed to the young Agatha Miller.
Agatha Christie Bust – A bronze statue to commemorate the Agatha Christie Centenary Year in 1990 by Dutch sculptor Carol Van Den Boom-Cairns.
Royal Torbay Yacht Club – Agatha’s father Frederick Miller was a prominent member here.
Beacon Cove – Once known as Ladies Bathing Cove. It was here that Agatha used to swim regularly.
