Here you can learn more about the life and works of this famous Welshman, who after Shakespeare is the most quoted writer in the English language. You can also hear some of the world’s most famous voices (including King Charles) reading lines from Dylan Thomas’ works.

Mumbles Village

The quaint village of Mumbles (also known as Oystermouth) is known as the ‘Gateway to the Gower’ and marks the beginning of the Gower Peninsula’s coastline. It is steeped in history and tradition. Mumbles railway is famous as the place where the world’s first passenger railway journey took place in 1807, as well as traditional Welsh gifts at the Lovespoon Gallery.

Ever popular, the coastal walk from Langland Bay to the glorious sandy beach of Caswell Bay is a real ‘must see’. With stunning views of amazing coastal scenery, this path offers the chance to spot wildlife such as rare birds, grey seals, lizards and even adders or a basking shark! The rock formations in the cliffs here are designated as a site of special scientific interest.
