The house in which the late Welsh poet Dylan Thomas was born and lived with his family for the first 23 years of his life.
Enter Dylan Thomas Birthplace and you go back in time to when the Thomas family bought No 5 as a new house in 1914 just a few months before Dylan was born in the front bedroom. Soak up the atmosphere of the house in which he lived for 23 years and wrote two thirds of his published work
The Dylan Thomas Birthplace is unique in that it allows you to stay in the house as a visitor. When you book the house you have exclusive use during your stay.
The house has a growing reputation for introducing new literary and musical talent from both Wales and the rest of the world.
The house is open for house tours every day at 11am / 1pm / 3pm and the relaxed journey takes you through the beautifully restored rooms to give you an insight into life in the Edwardian era and a perfect starting point to discover just how Dylan was inspired by "...this sea-town..."
These tours generally last 1hr 15mins.
Pre-booking is advisable as on occasion the house is required for filming, meetings and other purposes which will mean the inability to carry out house tours at times where advertised. We do of course, apologise for any inconvenience which may be caused in these instances. Pre-booking can be done by phone or email
