Dylan Thomas’s Village
Dylan Thomas’s village, Laugharne, Carmarthenshire
Approx 18 miles: “The strangest town in Wales” is how Thomas described Laugharne on his first visit. But he kept coming back and the town is of huge significance to his work. The town of Llareggub (“bugger all” spelt backwards) in his radio play Under Milk Wood was based on Laugharne, and it was in his shed-cum-study above the Boathouse that he wrote it and many of his other works. Across the road from Browns hotel is the Pelican, the tall Georgian terraced house where Thomas would visit his father to do the crossword and chat.
