About Dylan Thomas Boathouse
Dylan Thomas was one of the most renowned in a school of Anglo-Welsh writers that flourished during that period. He made particular use of the, then, new mass media technologies of broadcasting and recording.
Born in Swansea but his family roots were in Carmarthenshire and it was this county that provided him with a constant source of inspiration.
Dylan Thomas was one of the greatest writers from Wales and a giant in the 20th century. He lived at the Boathouse for the last four years of his life during which time many major pieces of work were written - including Under Milk Wood.
Set in a cliff overlooking the glorious, 'heron priested' Taf Estuary the Boathouse offers a fascinating visit including memorabilia, interpretation, bookshop and tea-room.
At the Boathouse, we display a selection of original paintings, prints and photographs throughout the year, which are all available for purchase.
