Dylan Thomas Square
Wales

The old dockside buildings and warehouses of Swansea have been developed into what is now the Swansea Maritime Quarter. Here is Dylan Thomas Square, with a large bronze statue to the great poet (1914 – 1953) by John Doubleday. Around the square are the Dylan Thomas Theatre, National Waterfront Museum, the Swansea Museum Tramway Centre (celebrating the Mumbles Railway, the world’s first passenger carrying railway, opened by act of Parliament in 1804 and closed in January 1960). What was the old pump house of the south dock, is now a pub and restaurant. On the western edge of the Maritime Quarter development is The Tower, Meridian Quay at 107m it is currently the tallest building in Wales. At the pontoon are the Helwick Lightship and the Canning tug, both part of the Swansea Maritime & Industrial Museum collection.
