Situated on the banks of the Tawe close to the Maritime Quarter, the Dylan Thomas Centre serves as the National Literature Centre for Wales. The center houses a permanent Dylan Thomas exhibition, art gallery, restaurant, and café-bookshop, and hosts the annual Dylan Thomas Festival. The poet's fans can buy a booklet that outlines the Dylan Thomas Trail around South Wales. It includes the Boathouse (now a museum), in Laugharne, where the poet lived and wrote the last four
years of his life.
