There is a lot of history to this island, and if you are here, you do need to go, read, observe, and learn. Plus is pretty, on the water, on the main road!

A big monument to a very stupid war. But very important to the proud local people to mark their victory.

The sculpture on the memorial is an extraordinary and original figure. If you have seen WW1 memorials elsewhere you will not have seen one like this I think. She's lovely!

Not to be confused with the 1982 Liberation Monument. Commemorates the battle between the British and the German fleets in 1914. The most southerly memorial to the Great War. The date of the battle, 8 December, is a public holiday in the islands.

This memorial is further from downtown than the Liberation Memorial, probably about 1/2 km walk. It has some artistically done plaques and ironwork on a tall obelisk. It is in memory of those who defended the islands a century ago.

Just want to say how much we enjoyed the 74 Day tour with Tim Miller. He is a very knowledgeable host and is very enthusiastic about what he is talking about. We would highly recommend any tour with Tim Miller.

A visit to the battle memorial is a walk from the pier on solid road. It is a sobering reminder of the the Falkland Island’s past. It’s worth a visit.

The monument is interesting to view. It is located along the coastal front road from the centre of Stanley. It stands in a neat little walled area and is worth 5-10 minutes visit

I don’t know the answer to this question for certain. I don’t recall seeing any wreaths there but I also didn’t see any sign saying you couldn’t place a memorial object there.
