Det skal I lave

Even if you've never read an Agatha Christie novel, watched a film, or seen her plays, it doesn't matter!

This tour focuses on Agatha the person and her truly remarkable life

Guests will be enthralled to hear the stories of her early years in Torquay, her bitter/sweet marriage to Archie Christie, and where she found the inspiration to create her legendary murder mysteries and characters.

I will provide guests with an understanding of who she was and how she bounced back from personal and professional challenges to become the world's most successful author

We’ll visit the spot where Archie proposed to Agatha, then onto the hotel where she and Archie spent their honeymoon.

We also invite guests to recreate the occasion when Miss Marple and Poirot met for the only time to commemorate Agatha’s 100th birthday.

By the end of the tour, you'll have a better appreciation of her outstanding contributions during both World Wars, her courage to travel alone to Baghdad and become a distinguished archaeologist, and how her books continue to touch the lives of millions around the world.

Well behaved dogs (on leads) are permitted

I have been hosting Agatha Christie tours for 3 years and every guest review has awarded the walking tour with 5 stars!

It is a privilege to lead tours around the stunning vistas that Torquay offers and to convey the story of her remarkable life - all 86 years!

And by the end of the walk, I hope guests will leave with a burning desire to read her books and share their new found enthusiasm for Agatha with family and friends

Where can I start? If you are in Torquay for a day trip or on a weekend this is something you shouldn't absolutely miss. Graham is a storyteller and a very good one at it, he could take you back in years and place you right next to Agatha here and there. We had a wonderful time walking, talking, doing trivia questions, taking photos etc. It was so much fun!! Highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Torquay. Please don't miss it!!

Being the start of Winter season, my wife, myself and the dog were lucky to have Graham all to ourselves. Graham was extremely affable, good natured and great fun peppering our interesting tour around Torquay learning about Agatha Christie's life with good humour, trivia quizzing (of which I think my wife managed to impress) and real-life recreation. The walk was a good length and took in some lovely sights. If we are in the area again we will certainly look to take Graham out on one of his other tours.

When visiting Torquay, please make sure to book with Graham for his Agatha Christie tour. I cannot emphasise enough how knowledgeable Graham is, how brilliantly he delivers the details and stories of Agatha's life, and how beautiful the scenery for the walk is. We had a fantastic time, have learnt lots, and would definitely recommend Graham's tour to anyone.

The Agatha Christie tour was wonderful. Graham was very knowledgeable and so enthusiastic about both Agatha and Torquay. He was so warm and friendly and the 2 1/2 hours just flew by , which shows how enjoyable he made the walk . He told us he did other walks too , if we had more time here we would definitely do more with him .

An excellent afternoon walk through Agatha Christie’s Torquay. We have just enjoyed a wonderful walk with our guide Graham through the world and times of Agatha Christie. What a fascinating and interesting woman she was Graham was very informative and engaging. He provided us with lots of information and insight into the area that fashioned Dame Christie. We felt it was an afternoon well spent and learned an awful lot. Many thanks Graham.
