Dylan Thomas Boat House in Laugharne, CarmarthenshireDylan Thomas and his wife Caitlin lived at the Boat House in Laugharne from 1949 - 1953, the last four years of his life. It was here where he wrote 'Under Milk Wood', one of his mayor works.

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea, but his family roots were in Carmarthenshire. Dylan and his wife Caitlin were regular visitors to Laugharne and he was particularly attracted to the boat house, which eventually became their family home. The boat house is set in spectacular scenery, on a cliff overlooking the Taf estuary, and is open to the public for much of the year. There is an exhibition of Dylan memorabilia, a tea room, a bookshop and of course the famous 'Writing Shed', where Dylan did most of his writing.
