Laugharne, like most rural welsh towns, has it's own historic monuments such as a fine Norman church and Laugharne castle which is set on a hill, raised up looking out to sea and surveying the whole town.

His grave is to be found in the churchyard marked by a simple white cross. Fans of Dylan Thomas and his work will be able to visit the' boathouse, from where the famous writer drew much of his inspiration, gazing out to sea over the spectacular estuary.
