Visit Wales: The Richard Burton Diaries Sweepstakes
Win a trip for two to Wales! Visit Wales is holding a sweepstakes to celebrate the publication of The Richard Burton Diaries, praised by the Sunday Times as “a waterfall of pleasure, funny, self-lacerating, highly indiscreet, competitive and rifted with an elegiac melancholy.”
The Grand Prize Includes:
- 6 day/ 5 night stay with accommodations for two
- Roundtrip flight to London for two
- Airport and rail transfers to Wales
- A private guided excursion to the seaside town, Tenby
- A tour of Richard Burton’s hometown, Pontrhydyfen
- A tour the Richard Burton Centre at Swansea University,
- A meeting with Professor Christopher Williams, editor of The Richard Burton Diaries
- A viewing of the original draft of the diaries

With the news that Burton will be receiving a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the 85th Academy Awards next weekend, and the continued praise for this “immensely entertaining account,” we thought you also might enjoy a photo we shared on our Tumblr blog, taken backstage with a couple more Hollywood stars during a broadcast interview with Diaries editor, Chris Williams.
