Unfinished Portrait

  • Torre Abbey TQ2 5JE United Kingdom (map)

Tickets available from £8, kids/teens go free

A welcome return to Torre Abbey Museum of this beautiful exhibition tracing the life of Agatha Christie, from her childhood in Torquay through her life and later years as a world famous author.

Unfinished Portrait reveals many of the exquisite photographs and personal objects that had previously remained hidden in the family archive. From her first sketched stories to the cine-films made during her archaeological expeditions to Syria and Iran with her second husband Sir Max Mallowan, they tell – in Agatha Christie’s own words – a captivating story of a remarkable life.

We are delighted that for this new edition of Unfinished Portrait, the exhibition will feature several previously unseen objects and photos particularly from Agatha Christie’s early life in Torquay as well as – rarely previously seen – the typewriter on which many of her most famous stories were written.

Agatha Christie: Unfinished Portrait is produced by The Christie Archive Trust and Agatha Christie Ltd - and is part of
