  • Starting at:

  • A 5.7 mile walk around the seaside town of New Quay on Cardigan Bay where Dylan Thomas and his wife Caitlin lived during the second world war.

    Dylan Thomas’s time in New Quay was short but prolific and the breath-taking views along this trail, which follows in his footsteps, easily show why he was so inspired. Stop-offs along the route give glimpses into his life at this seaside resort including the local where he enjoyed a tipple, his writing haven and the spot of an infamous incident which generations later brought Hollywood to town. The walk’s closing chapter is a stunning sea cliff stroll overlooking the blue waters of Cardigan Bay before dropping back into the picturesque port.
