Dylan Thomas Birthplace

5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Uplands
Swansea
Wales
SA2 0RA

01792 472555

The Birthplace of Dylan Thomas at 5 Cwmdonkin Drive in the suburb of Uplands was opened in 2008 after a three year restoration programme which brought it back to the condition when it was bought as a new house by the Thomas family a fe w months before Dylan was born in the front bedroom on 27th October 1914.

Dylan lived in the house for 23 years and wrote two thirds of his published work in his tiny bedroom which has been restored to look as it might have been in 1934 just before the publication of his first book of poems at the age of nineteen. It has been described as the first World Literary Heritage Site in Wales.

The house is open for house tours, overnight stays, Edwardian dinner parties and events. There are views over the "...splendidly curving shore..." of Swansea Bay and close by is Cwmdonkin Park where Dylan played as a child and wrote about in stories and poems including The Hunchback in the Park. Swansea, Mumbles and glorious beaches of the Gower Peninsula which also feature in Dylan's work are within a few miles travel.
