Dylan Thomas’ Laugharne Discover the magic of Laugharne in Carmarthenshire with three of its famous attractions, all associated with the great Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas. Walk in Dylans footsteps Grist Square, Laugharne, Carmarthenshire by Discover Carmarthenshire The lovely two-mile Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk is the setting for one of his best loved works, Poem in October, in which he vividly describes a stroll around Laugharne on his 30th birthday. There are information boards at all the best viewpoints of the ‘heron-priested shore’, which are full of information about Dylan’s life and work. As a bonus, if you do the walk on your own birthday (and can prove it), you can claim complimentary goodies at several local businesses. Free pint and a bag of chips, anyone? Dylans Boathouse Dylan Thomas' Boathouse in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire by Paula J James When Dylan and Caitlin arrived in Laugharne they dreamed of living in the Boathouse, set idyllically on the Taf Estuary. A wealthy benefactor bought it for them, and Dylan lived there with his family from 1949 to 1953. The Boathouse is now a museum, containing lots of memorabilia and much of the original furniture. Close to the main house is a cliff-top garage that became his writing shed, which is furnished with his desk and writing materials, as if Dylan himself had just nipped off to the pub. Browns Hotel Browns Hotel in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire by Eifion There’s not a pub in Laugharne that can’t claim to have some Dylan Thomas connection (he was, ahem, generous with his patronage). But it was in the airy bay window of Browns Hotel that he spent many happy lost afternoons, drinking his pint of Buckley’s, writing, reading the papers, and bantering with his drinking companions. Now the hotel has been restored and reborn as a five-star boutique hotel and oozes a subtle 1940s/50s glamour. More attractions and accommodation in Laugharne Enjoy this?
