Laugharne CastleLaugharne's handsome old castle stands in the sleepy sea town immortalized by Dylan Thomas. Its history concerns comfort as well as conflict (medieval in origin, it was later transformed into a fine Elizabethan mansion). The castle last saw active service during the Civil War, after which it declined into a romantic ruin. Its extensive restorations include a Victorian garden. Dylan Thomas and Richard Hughes, author of the well-known book A High Wind in Jamaica, worked in the garden gazebo.
