Agatha Christie’s Memorial

Dame Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was an English author famed for writing detective novels, short stories, plays and poems. 🕵️‍♀️

Some of her well-known works include The Murder at the Vicarage, Partners In Crime, The Mousetrap, Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile, which featured the celebrated detectives, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. 📓

Christie was awarded a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1971. 🏆

This bronze statue stands 2.4 metres high, and is dedicated to Agatha Christie.

Its location in the heart of London's theatre district truly honours Christie's contribution to theatre: she was the first female playwright to have three plays performing simultaneously in the West End, after all.
