Fodor's Review

Dylan Thomas was born in this suburban Edwardian house, which remains a place of pilgrimage for the poet's devotees. You can wander the house with no restrictions (they're proud of the fact that nothing is roped off), or prebook tours that are tailored according to how much time you want to spend here. Devoted fans can hang around for hours at 11, 1, and 3. You can also arrange tours of other Thomas-related sites in Swansea and farther afield in the region. The house can be rented as self-catering accommodation for around £150 per night or £580 per week.
