Agatha Christie's First Home

This is where crime novelist Agatha Christie lived.

Location: 47-48 Campden Street, Kensington

Description: Best-selling crime novelist Agatha Christie and her (then) new husband, archaeologist Max Mallowan, lived here between 1930 and 1934.

Christie wrote three Poirot novels (Murder on the Orient Express, Peril at End House and Lord Edgware Dies), one Miss Marple book (The Murder at the Vicarage), and two more novels (The Sittaford Mystery and Why didn't they ask Evans?) right here.

They moved around the corner in 1934 renting this house out for a while before making a nice profit from it's sale.
