In and around Gresham Court

There's always something going on in or around Gresham Court. Torquay is a lively resort with its own unique climate - often likened to the Mediterranean.  Hence it is known as the 'English Riviera'. With so much beautiful scenery and heritage in this part of Devon, you'll never be short of something to do or places to visit.

Remember, in addition to being a guesthouse, we are proud to host a number of events throughout the year. See below for more about what we can do for your business or group in terms of hiring our facilities for events.

  • Agatha Christie Exhibition

    Agatha Christie is one of the world’s most famous and prolific writers.  She was born right here in Torquay in 1890 and lived here until 1922.  Agatha wrote 75 novels and 14 short stories and has earned the title "Queen of Crime" -  because 66 of those novels are detective fiction!

    Agatha Christie is celebrated in many ways here in Torquay, not least with a week-long International Agatha Christie Festival which happens across Torbay every September.  At Gresham Court we are incredibly fortunate to be located just a few steps away from Torquay Museum which is the permanent home to one of the world’s most extensive exhibitions of Agatha Christie artifacts and memorabilia.
