Camping in Laugharne

Laugharne is a town in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on the estuary of the River Tâf. It is known for having been the home of Dylan Thomas from 1949 until his death in 1953, and is thought to have been an inspiration for the fictional town of Llareggub in Under Milk Wood.

The cockle industry was once a significant part of the Laugharne economy, and the well-established pickling firm Parsons have their origins in Laugharne. Prior to this, fishing in Carmarthen Bay was of great importance.

Architecturally, Laugharne contains many fine examples of Georgian townhouses, including "Great House" and Castle House, Laugharne a 2 Listed building, with a scattering of earlier vernacular cottages.

Attractions in the town include the 12th-century Laugharne Castle, the town hall and the birdlife of the estuary.
