New Quay has strong links with writer Dylan Thomas, who wintered in the area in 1944-5 when he composed ‘Quite Early One Morning’.
Thomas had several relatives living in the area and New Quay is often cited as inspiration for the fictitious village of Llareggub (try reading it backwards) the fictional Welsh fishing village setting in his most famous work ‘Under Milk Wood’.
More recently (2008) the feature film The Edge of Love about Dylan Thomas’ life, starring Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley, was filmed locally.
There is a Dylan Thomas related trail in the region too.
The town has an array of facilities inclucing car parking, eateries, a Tourist Information Centre and public toilets.
