Getting to Agatha Christie's Greenway
Getting to Greenway by car
Greenway is tucked away down country lanes just beyond the village of Galmpton. The lanes are narrow and drivers do need to take care as they can get relatively busy in the summer months.
The house is on the banks of The River Dart. It can be reached by car and is approximately 25 minutes from Torquay. Visitors wanting to use their car to get to the house need to book them in. This can be done by telephone on 01803 842382 or if the visit is more than 24 hours away it can be done online.
Getting to Greenway by Steam Train
For visitors who have a bit of time on their hands and who are wanting to immerse themselves in amore authentic Agatha Chrsite atmosphere, an alternative way to get to Greenway is by steam train. The service is operated by The Dartmouth Steam Railway and Riverboat Company and there are daily services for most of the year (with the exception of January).
Trains leave the company's Paignton station (which is located alongside the mainline railway station) and services stop at Kingswear. Passengers can then corss the river and pick up a river boat on Dartmouth Quayside and travel to Greenway's very own quay. After the vist, passengers can then retrace their original outward journey.
Getting to Greenway by Boat
For visitors who make their way to Dartmouth, a river boat service operates from Dartmouth Quay to Greenway Quay. This is operated by the Greenway and Dittisham Ferry Company and runs from February (when the house opens) through to the end of December.
The exact level of service depends upon the opeing times of the house but in the peak months is an hourly service. The walk up from the quayside to the house is moderately challenging.
For visitors with restricted mobility, a buggy operates from the main car park to the house as well as from the quay up to the house.
