After a short transfer to the visitor centre, take a self-guided walk to get insight into life in the Falklands, where approximately 2500 people call home. Guides will be on hand for demonstrations and questions at regular intervals.   

Disembark the shuttle bus at the Jetty Visitor Centre and head to the Jubilee Villa Gardens where there will be a guide to explain the flora and fauna of the gardens and some basic history of the Villas.  Take a stroll along Ross road to the Christchurch Cathedral, built in the late 1800’s, with Cathedral wardens available to explain the history of the church and answer any questions.  

Further along there are plenty of photo opportunities, such as the Whalebone Arch, constructed from the jawbones of two blue whales and erected in 1933; there’s Victory Green, alongside the harbour wall and the mast of SS Great Britain, some of the many picturesque points. 

End your walk at the Historic Dockyard Museum and learn about previous explorers, the history and heritage of the island as well as the animals, plants and sea all around. Explore at your leisure with museum staff available to answer your questions.
