Dylan Thomas Boathouse

Poet Dylan Thomas lived in the Boathouse in Laugharne, Wales with his family between 1949 and 1953, the last four years of his life. It was in this house that he wrote many major pieces including Under Milk Wood. The boat house is set in a cliff overlooking the Tf Estuary.

Thomas first visited the village of Laugharne with a friend, the poet Glyn Jones, in 1934, and was attracted to it. He moved there four years later, and the Boathouse was later bought for him by a benefactor.

It is now owned by Carmarthenshire County Council and serves as a museum. It is open to the public for most of the year. It contains Thomas memorabilia and some of the original furniture. Close to the main house is the "writing shed" where Dylan spent much of his time. It receives about 15,000 visitors a year.
