Agatha Christie: Destination Unknown.

11 Sep - 28 Nov

Torre Abbey

A journey in poetry, pictures, and archaeology

A new exhibition about Agatha Christie will open in Torre Abbey this autumn. After her mother’s death, an unexpected divorce and her own disappearance, Agatha, already a world-famous author, made a pivotal decision. She needed to escape England and booked a last-minute, solo ticket, on the Simplon-Orient-Express. And with it she changed everything.

She discovered a passion for archaeology and Iraq and found love in the most unlikely of places. This uplifting exhibition uses her own words, photographs, letters and poetry to tell the story of her second marriage to archaeologist Max Mallowan. The result is an intimate glimpse into her extraordinary adventures to the Middle East.
