Locally, the village is well known for its football team, Galmpton United F.C., its excellent Grammar School, and, for tours, the “Greenway Estate,” a Grade II-listed house and gardens acquired by the National Trust that was the home of the well-known and record-breaking author Agatha Christie.

Nowadays, the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway has a station at Churston, less than a mile from Galmpton, and has opened a new station at Greenway Halt, where passengers can alight and walk to Agatha Christie’s old home!

Galmpton has a pub (the Manor) and a creek with a small tidal marina and plenty of rural walks. There is also a back road to Stoke Gabriel, which is generally unknown to the visiting public. It has typically high hedges and is a winding country road with some views and great houses!
