Learn about the history of Stanley and the Falkland Islands at the Falkland Islands Museum, where you will browse among whaling paraphernalia.

Driving along Ross Road by motorcoach, you will see the memorial from the war with Argentina in 1982. Your guide will explain to you why Britain and Argentina went to war in the 20th century to settle, once-and-for-all, a decades-long dispute about ownership of the remote Falkland Islands.

Photograph Government House, where building work began in 1845, but it was 1859 before the first Governor took up residence.

Outside Stanley, enjoy a drive by the local airport and Surf Bay to see the beach and minefields from 1982. At Whalebone Cove, see the hull of the Lady Elizabeth -- a three-masted iron barque from the turn of the 20th century.
