Laugharne Tourist Information
A town immortalized by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas

Laugharne is an ancient coastal town which can be found on the banks of the estuary of the River Taf, it's positioned thirteen miles from the county town of Carmarthen and eighteen miles from the popular seaside town of Tenby.

Visiting Laugharne means enjoying a slower pace of life in a town that has a small sprinkling of shops along with a few cafes, pubs, and restaurants.

A real must visit attraction in Laugharne is the home of the renowned Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas. Dylan lived the last four years of his tragically short life (died in 1953 aged 39) with his family in the Boathouse which was bought for him by a wealthy benefactor, today the Dylan Thomas Boathouse is now a small heritage centre which houses lots of memorabilia and much of the original furniture as well as recordings of Dylan Thomas. Close to the Boathouse is a cliff-top garage that became Dylan's writing shed, it is furnished with his desk and writing materials. Both the Boathouse and writing shed have breathtaking views across the estuary which would have no doubt been a great source of inspiration to the great man, it is also where he wrote the poems "Do Not Go Gentle", "Poem on His Birthday", and "Over Sir John's Hill".

Positioned on a low cliff by the small River Coran and looking out over the estuary of the River Taf are the remains of Laugharne Castle, which was once a magnificent medieval castle turned Tudor mansion. Today the castle is in the restorative hands of Cadw who allow visitors to wander around and soak up some of the castle's history, stroll through its Victorian gardens, and enjoy some spectacular views of the estuary from the high points of the castle. Laugharne Castle also has a lovely garden summerhouse that was used by both the poet Dylan Thomas and the author Richard Hughes.

A few miles South of the town is the vast 7-mile long Pendine Sands Beach, one of the longest beaches in Wales. Owned by the Ministry of Defence (therefore sometimes sections are closed off to the public), it's a fabulous super long sandy beach that can extend to almost half a mile wide at low tide, allowing plenty of room for all beachgoers and making it just perfect for all those fun beach games. Pendine Sands is one of two beaches in Wales that allow vehicles to drive (legally) directly onto the sand, perfect if you've got a boot full of beach paraphernalia.

Anglers will find the area around Laugharne offers some good fishing for bass and flounders.
