South-west of Carmarthen is the small town of Laugharne with its imposing castle standing on the foreshore of the Taf estuary looking out to Carmarthen Bay. It was rebuilt in stone during the later C13th and early C14th and was subsequently transformed into a Tudor mansion in the C16th; the garden retains its early C19th layout of lawns, shrubbery, formal rose beds and borders.
Dylan Thomas, the best-known English-language poet from Wales, lived at the Boathouse in Laugharne for the last four years of his life from 1949 to 1953, during which time he wrote many major pieces of work including Under Milk Wood. The Boathouse is now a heritage centre and contains audio visual presentations, original furnishings and memorabilia, a themed bookshop and a tea room.
