The Dylan Thomas Experience

“To begin at the beginning……………

……

poet and playwright, actor and broadcaster, scriptwriter and storyteller, in his sadly short, but eventful life, Dylan Thomas was all of these and so much more……

Whether a scholar or student, teacher or pupil, or perhaps someone who simply wants to learn more about the great man whilst experiencing something of the wonderful part of the world that so inspired his writing – the Wales of Dylan Thomas - The Dylan Thomas Experience offers a range of trips, tours and events to suit your specific requirements.

Through the actual streets he walked and the haunts and homes which so influenced Dylan’s thought and being, follow in his footsteps and experience something of the world that inspired his immortal words.

It would be our privilege to show the visitors something of Dylan’s Wales – visit the iconic Boathouse at Laugharne, where Dylan and Caitlin spent some of their happiest times. See the house at “Fern Hill” in the Carmarthenshire countryside. What about Majoda the house where Dylan and Caitlin spent some of the war years and which was raked by gunfire after Dylan had an argument in a New Quay pub?

Dylan was a prolific writer from a young age - See No 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Uplands, the house where Dylan was born and grew into adulthood. The house has been lovingly restored by its present owners. Visit the park of the “Hunchback in the Park” and the pubs of Swansea and Mumbles……. and where would you be if you were “Under Milk Wood” and in the village of Llareggub? A good question which continues to be much debated. By the way, try reading Llareggub backwards.

Our tours are accompanied by specialist guides and where appropriate by poets and actors, artists and storytellers.

Within reason we can structure your tour to suit your particular requirements. Our tour department has over 20 years experience and a wealth of local knowledge so you will be well looked after.

Subject to numbers, your transport might involve executive coach, mini bus or luxury car and schools, groups or anyone who might prefer a day trip are all welcome.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our web site – call us and enjoy your own Dylan Thomas Experience.
