Visit to Torre Abbey and the Poison Garden (S Devon Branch)

Thu. 19 May 2022 at 10:30 am

£10 – £12

The visit will start with a talk given by head gardener, Ali Marshall, about the Abbey’s Poison Garden and its links with Agatha Christie. Following this, Ali will take us on a guided tour around the garden.

Snacks can be taken in the Abbey’s cafe or elsewhere – the day’s ticket allows one to come and go as you please. The afternoon can be spent in exploring the whole Abbey site, the museum and the exhibitions.

The cost of £10 for members of the DA, £12 for non-members, includes a day ticket to the Abbey. A reduced rate will apply to members of the Friends of Torre Abbey.

Meet outside the ticket office at 10:30 am where payment will be collected (cash only, please). Numbers will be limited, so please book via the Organiser (details below).

Note that the only on-site parking is a limited number of blue-badge places. The large Torre Valley car-park is nearby, and the site is easily accessible by train or bus (and ferry from Paignton, Brixham and Dartmouth). Details are on the site’s website (see the link below).

This event replaces the previously-advertised day’s visit to Brixham on this date.
