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 « less

In the twelfth century the castle was mainly owned by the first Earl of Warwick and his family. In 1203 the lordship of Gower was given to the de Breos family who ruled until the 1320s when it passed into the hands of the de Mowbray’s via Alina de Breos who married John de Mowbray. The de Mowbrays lost Gower to the Beauchamps for some time due to a legal decision and in 1461 it passed to the Herberts, the Somersets and then to the Dukes of Beaufort who held it until 1927 when it was transferred to Swansea Corporation. Currently it is the responsibility of the Swansea City Council and supervised by the Friends of Oystermouth Castle. « less

A big thank you to all our visitors for their patience in putting up with the building works, dust and disruption. Work will soon start on our new visitor centre, shop and reception but we will be open for business as normal every day. Please check our website or answer machine before travelling just in case we very rarely have to close early. Visitors are encouraged to pick up and handle items and take photographs. The museum is constantly evolving and in response to visitor demand in Autumn 2013 we built a small walk through indoor trench and dugout to commemorate the sacrifices of the Great War 1914-18. The main indoor street scene continues to display life during the Second World War, as you walk past an RAF Operations Room, through an air raid Shelter and into our 1940s street. Play the piano in the Three Lamps Pub then have a Camp coffee or Spam sandwich in our gift shop, where we sell replica Ration books, identity cards and wartime recipe books. Just 2 minutes from Jnc 42 of the M4 we are open all year but please note that on some Winter weekends we may close to work on new displays and exhibitions as we have school groups visiting every weekday. Disabled facilities. Onsite parking. Admission charge applies. « less
