I was inspired to write this as a tribute to another blogger I have come across who writes some wonderful posts which are both amusing and educational, her latest was on the subject of a play about Agatha Christie.
The title of the blogger in question is londonlifewithliz which hopefully you will be able to view by following the links I am putting up.
‘Where is Mrs Christie?’ My thoughts on a play as intriguing as any of the legendary author’s thrillers
I love Agatha Christie stories and was delighted when I had to go to The Isle of Wight recently to find a hotel which I’m sure alleged to be the hotel which Mrs Christie went to when she disappeared, however having read the above article I now find that the hotel Mrs Christie was found at was The Harrowgate Hydro, now called The Old Swan.
Having written about my disappointment with the Ryde Castle Hotel, I am now doubly disappointed and have no idea where I read the hotel was used by Agatha Christie but I know I saw it somewhere, perhaps it is no longer on the hotel website!
All, however is not lost as by a strange quirk of circumstances I have booked a five day trip with Rail Discoveries for my wife and I in June, to go on steam train excursions which is based in Harrowgate. Having read the above article I thought details of the hotel rung a bell and yes, I am delighted to report we shall be staying at The Old Swan Harrowgate. So by sheer chance I shall be staying at the hotel where Agatha Christie stayed when she disappeared, I may get my wife to book in as Mrs Teresa Neele!
