Christ Church Cathedral, Stanley

4.1
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Falkland Islands
Visit Christ Church Cathedral, the southernmost Anglican cathedral in the world and one of the most architecturally impressive buildings in the Falklands. Pay special attention to the cathedral's intricate, colorful stained glass windows, as well as the large wooden chancel. Looming trees obscure the church from the front, though their preservation is a priority for environmentally-minded Falklanders. Head inside to read numerous plaques written in English, remembers the battles of 1982 fought between British and Argentinian forces. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Stanley trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This small church is worth a visit just for the decor and atmosphere, helped by some outstanding stained glass windows. The volunteers inside the church give a good history to visiting cruise ship...  more »
  • Our least favorite attraction on Ross street but worth a quick stop on the way to the Thatcher/War Memorials. Home of the Whalebone arches and a historical older church.  more »

  • We received a very warm welcome whilst visiting from Norwegian Star in December 2019. This church is clearly Christ centred. It also happens to be an attractive building, with a lovely stained glass window featuring a bicycle! Weird I know, but it belonged to a much loved member of the community.
