Tourist Information Centre
The Tourist Information Centre is based at the Jetty Visitor Centre, situated on the corner of Ross Road and Philomel Street and is a first-stop for anyone visiting the Islands, no matter how long or short your stay. The friendly staff will be happy to assist with information about Stanley, the Islands in general and answer any questions you may have.
Street maps of Stanley can be obtained showing visitor facilities and attractions.Wi-fi is available and the shop stocks a range of souvenirs including locally crafted items, stamped postcards, artwork and clothing. Aspects of Falklands’ life, history and the natural environment are on display.
A traditional red telephone box is situated outside the Centre, perfect for a photograph or even to make a phone-call – cards can be purchased in the Centre. Or for the technologically advanced, a web-cam looks out to the front of the building so you can connect with your friends and family overseas with a cheery wave!
The Visitor Centre is easy to reach on foot from accommodation establishments in Stanley. If you are arriving on a large cruise vessel, a tender from your ship will bring you straight to the door. Smaller cruise ships berth at FIPASS, just a few minute’s drive away - courtesy shuttle buses make frequent trips to and from the Centre.
Sheltered areas with seating are situated to the front of the building with lovely views across the harbour. Rest awhile and look out for a stray sealion or watch the birdlife along the shore.
Toilets/restrooms are located alongside the main building.
The Tourist Information Centre is open in summer months from 10.00 am to 12 noon and 1.00 to 4.00 pm on weekdays, 9.00 am to 5.00 pm Saturdays and 10.00 am to 4.00 pm Sundays with extended hours on days of cruise visits.
