Laugharne Town Information

A fascinating harbour town with its own part-restored castle, Laugharne was both the home and the watering hole of the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas who drank in a local pub and lived humbly in wooden boathouse. He apparently immortalised the place as ‘Llaregubb’ in his work ‘Under Milk Wood’.

Thomas’s house behind the castle in Cliff Walk has been turned into his shrine. He actually wrote many of his poems in a shed in the garden. Half a mile south is St John’s Hill, which featured in one of his poems.
