Stanley

Life in the South Atlantic

Island Inspiration

  1. Things to Do
    The Falkland Islands are a natural wonder of spectacular landscapes and stunning vistas, teeming with wildlife. With so many adventures to enjoy, from walking and hiking, wildlife watching, fishing and sailing, kayaking and cruising, the Islands offer you a unique opportunity for truly getting away from it all.
  2. Eat & Drink
    Hearty, home-cooked and locally sourced produce are characteristics of Falklands' cuisine. The tradition of 'smoko', home-baked cakes, biscuits and other treats piled high and served mid-morning or afternoon, is hard to resist!
  3. Stay
    There are many special places to stay whilst on a trip to the Falkland Islands, from well-appointed hotels in Stanley, cosy lodges in the countryside and on the islands, self-catering cottages, or even camping in the wild outdoors.

  7. Historic Dockyard Museum_Stanley_Falkland Islands
    Located on Ross Road, in Stanley, the Historic Dockyard Museum contains many exhibits of social and maritime interest and is a “must-see” for all visitors. Life in the past is exemplified though farming stories, items for entertainment and relaxation, recreations of shops, homes and buildings including a wash-house and old smithy. Maritime exhibits include models, seafaring tales, artefacts and relics from ships stranded in the Islands. Natural history is also on display with the world’s oldest remains of the Warrah, a fox-like animal now extinct, and Falklands’ birds brought to life through taxidermy.

  8. Lying at the east end of Stanley Harbour is Stanley's most imposing and iconic shipwreck. Known as Lady Liz, the ship was launched ain Sunderland in the UK in 1879 and suffered damage whilst rounding Cape Horn in 1913.  She limped into Stanley for repairs but the high cost prevented any being carried out.  After various moorings in Stanley Harbour, a violent gale in 1936 forced the Lady Liz into her current resting place.
  9. These villas were built in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. They are typical examples of British terraced town houses of that era, making a curious contrast to the rest of Stanley's architecture.
