Dylan Thomas Trail, New Quay on New Quay travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Walks in Wales and England >  Dylan Thomas Trail, New Quay
The Dylan Thomas trail in New Quay is a short walk, roughly 3 miles, around the town of New Quay in West Wales. It takes in the haunts of the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his wife Caitlin, and is based on the assumption that Dylan was inspired to write the story of Under Milk Wood after his stays in New Quay. Whether this is true or not (the people of Laugharne in South wales may disagree for example) it is an interesting walk and if you like a pint of beer with your walking there are plenty of opportunities to slake your thirst along the way.
The trail starts close to the harbour at the Tourist Information Centre where there is a colourful information board that shows pictures of the route and from where you may pick up an information leaflet on the walk. Immediately opposite the TIC is London House the one time home and shop of Norman Evans who inspired the Nogood Boyoe in Under Milk Wood. A few yards up Church Street is the Dolau Public House said to be the favourite pub of Dylan's hard drinking and long suffering wife Caitlin. Caitlin would complain in later years that all the heavy drinking was doing her more harm than Dylan as she was physically unable to down the pints of beer and would have to drink the more alcoholic shorts.
