It’s almost impossible to mention the town of Laugharne without mentioning ‘Dylan Thomas’ in the next breath. He is synonymous with the place – he lived here, loved here, drank in many of its pubs and is buried in the graveyard of St Martin’s Church. And no visit to Laugharne is complete without a pilgrimage to The Boathouse, where Dylan lived with his wife and family in the last years of his life. On your way to it, you’ll pass the writing shed overlooking the Taf Estuary, where Thomas wrote his famous radio drama, ‘Under Milk Wood’. It’s been left just as though Thomas had popped out for a breath of fresh air.
