Discover… Dylan Thomas in the Maritime Quarter

Discover… Dylan Thomas in the Maritime Quarter

Enjoy a Dylan Thomas-themed wander through part of the Maritime Quarter. This gentle, flat stroll is around 1 kilometre in length, and can take 20 – 25 minutes.

Dylan Thomas was born, and spent the first 20 years of his life, in Swansea. He returned frequently in the subsequent years, and continued to write about his ‘beautiful drab town’ and its people.

Dylan’s writing will be your guide as you follow this short trail and discover Swansea Marina through his eyes. You’ll see first-hand some of the history and industrial heritage, and see the lasting effects of the Blitz of Dylan’s ‘marble-town, city of laughter, little Dublin’ (letter to Vernon Watkins).
