Wales is a land of myths and legends, Dylan Thomas and actor Richard Burton are two of the Artistic Legends who were born on the opposite sides of Swansea Bay and became work colleagues and friends. Both now have trails dedicated to them in their home towns of Swansea and Port Talbot.

Thomas' Welsh trail starts in Swansea, goes through to New Quay in Ceredigion, west Wales and ends in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire. . As an acknowledged Thomas tourist guide, there has been an increase in bookings for guided tours by Anne from trans Atlantic journalists and special interest groups.
