Laugharne rather than Swansea is most commonly associated with Dylan Thomas. He first visited it in 1934, describing it as "the strangest town in Wales". It was an isolated English speaking town and was known for the eccentricity of its inhabitants. It was the scene of the blossoming of Thomas's relationship with Caitlin and eventually became their home. After his death in New York Thomas's body was returned to Laugharne for burial. Cailin was later buried in the same spot.
