Wind the clock back and journey to Agatha Christie’s South Devon home aboard Barnaby, a vintage bus from 1947. The authentic green bus takes passengers from Torquay, Paignton and Brixham to the former summer home of Agatha Christie and it’s the only way to arrive at the attraction in the style of the golden era.
The bus takes fans of the queen of crime along the Agatha Christie Mile in her hometown, Torquay, and the friendly driver provides a commentary to ensure every landmark significant to her life is pointed out as Barnaby chugs his way past. The bus stops include Torquay’s Belgrave Road and Cary Parade, Paignton seafront, Brixham Museum and Churston Farm Shop.
The bus picks up and drops off twice per day at each stop during the summer, and it’s possible to buy combined tickets that include the bus fare and entry to the National Trust property. The Agatha Christie bus is a great way to get into the spirit of things even before you reach Greenway, and although it’s a bit of a bumpy ride it’s good fun. Greenway House offers a rare glimpse into the world of the notoriously private writer, and it’s been left much as the family left it, so a visit is a must for all fans of the world’s most successful crime writer.
