Swansea City Centre Trail, Walks Swansea, City of Swansea - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


. Swansea City_of_Swansea Wales
Dylan Thomas' work was influenced by many people and places in and around Swansea, Gower and South Wales. If you would like to visit the places that Dylan Thomas knew well, what better way of doing so than to follow our trails? The Swansea City Centre trail takes you around the Swansea that Dylan Thomas knew well, from landmark buildings to the pubs in which he drank. What Swansea residents and visitors see today is a vastly different Swansea from the one in which Dylan Thomas grew up. Even during his lifetime, the German Luftwaffe s Three Nights Blitz had bombed the heart out of the city, leaving the desolate picture Dylan described so movingly in his radio piece Return Journey (first broadcast in 1947). Since then, re-development has further altered the cityscape - Dylan s ugly, lovely town is now a city. However, this city still contains a wealth of solid and tangible relics, remains and reminders of Dylan s Swansea to be discovered. A true impression of the wonderful pre-war architecture is still much in evidence. A wander through Swansea even today gives more than a hint of Dylan s Swansea where he grew up, worked and played. Enjoy yourself as you meander through the greatest influence on the greatest of Poets.
