Laugharne

Go to Laugharne, it is very special and the home of the late Dylon Thomas. The boat house and the castle are worth seeing and there are also some really nice places to have a meal.

A castle has been on the site for centuries. The current incarnation, which is now a ruin, is from 1500s I think. You can no longer go inside the castle ruins. But you can walk all around it. Beautiful gardens nearby, and the views over the estuary are fantastic in all directions. Laugharne itself may be best known for its... More

Closed, also Cadw so no National Trust free access even if it was open. Only £3.30 to get in when open so not a big problem

A lovely castle to walk around with great view of the estuary. Give it a try before or after a visit to Dylan's place.

Located in the pretty village of Laugharne, turn off at St Clears between Carmarthen and Tenby. The castle is more a romantic looking Castle than a defensive one, however it is in reasonable condition for a ruin. a small museum tells about the history of the Castle. All the staff are very friendly. worth a visit The pubs are good... More

We briefly visited here - had a very quick look at the Castle and the home - the"Boathouse" of famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. It was very quiet despite this being his 100th birthday month. The house of Thomas and the 'writing shed' were up a fairly steep path but worth a little walk to peek inside. No time to... More

The views were stunning and considering its mostly ruins the kids had a great time exploring, running around and climbing. Even though its ruins there is still plenty of information to fill the gaps in your own imagination
