Town of Laugharne

Situated on the bank of the River Taf and best known as being the home of Dylan Thomas.

Laugharne is a picturesque riverside village in the County of Carmarthenshire. Amongst all the pretty houses, there is also a ruined castle – the current structure dates from the 13th century and the castle has had quite a colourful history. There is a nice riverside walk which goes from the car park alongside the castle and on past the Dylan Thomas Boat House and on to the house where he once lived – this now houses a cafe, art gallery and shop. There is also an exhibition of Dylan Thomas’ life.

During early April Laugharne plays host to the Laugharne Weekend – a 3 day event of Literature, Art and Music hosted at various venues across the Town.

Laugharne also has a good selection of shops, cafe’s, restaurants and pubs to visit.
