Be sure to go inside. Beautiful with memorials. Worth the short visit. We did it as part of cruise. No charge. Get photo of whale bones outside.

Visiting the Church is a must in any travel, even if you are not religious or you don't have a religious belief, but this Church is particularlly very cozy and nice. Not to many ornaments, not heavily adorned, just classical and nice.

This church has lovely stained glass windows reflecting Falklands history. I especially loved one of a beloved visiting nurse, standing with her bicycle. Kneeling cushions embroidered by local women and reflecting local culture/history are absolutely lovely. I am so glad I took time to stop...More

This mainly Victorian Cathedral stands in the middle of Stanley overlooking the bay. Plenty of history attached to it and reading the various memorial plaques brings its history to life.

If you can walk, you can manage to see. This is the main church in Stanley. These are Great Britain people and the majority are Protestant. Very close community of people. Falkland islands is a wonderful place due to the people and the penguins.
