About

Join us for EXTRAORDINARY walks around Torquay 

The walking tours take place every day, which vary in time from 1½ hours to 3 hours


The two main tours which we offer are: 

Walk 1 – The story of Agatha Christie’s extraordinary life

Even if you've never read an Agatha Christie novel, watched a film, or seen her plays, it doesn't matter! This tour tells the story of Agatha's truly remarkable life

This fascinating tour tells the story of her extraordinary life. How she overcame personal and professional challenges to become the world’s best selling novelist. We follow the stunning English Riviera coastline whilst conveying the story of her life and her incredible achievements.

     Find out about Agatha’s first 30 years growing up in Torquay

     See the hotel where they spent their honeymoon

     Walk along the pier where she would roller skate with her friends.

     Visit the location where Agatha discovered the retired Belgian Inspector who inspired Hercule Poirot.

     Commit a crime in front of Agatha’s bust!

 

Walk 2: The Fawlty Tours experience

Arguably, the greatest British sitcom of all time was set in Torquay!

Fawlty Towers was and remains Comedy Gold. Nearly 50 years ago the British public were introduced to Basil, Sybil, Manuel & Polly and they took them to their hearts. Even today, we can still quote classic lines from the show. Only 12 x 30 minute episodes were made, which have been shown all over the world, including Germany! And now you have the opportunity to hear the story of Fawlty Towers on our MUST-DO tour!

     Discover how a stay at a Torquay hotel gave John Cleese and Connie Booth the idea to write Fawlty Towers

     Hear how Manuel was created and why he was made Spanish

     We'll talk about the hotel's dodgy sign posts!

     Find out how the programme was saved after the BBC's head of comedy described the show as 'dire’
