The Whalebone Arch

By Linda Tancs

Constructed in 1933 from the jawbones of two blue whales to commemorate the centenary of continuous British administration in the Falkland Islands, the Whalebone Arch is a popular tourist attraction in Stanley. You’ll find it in front of Christ Church Cathedral, the southernmost Anglican church in the world. LATAM offers weekly flights to Mount Pleasant Airport on East Falkland, where bus service continues to Stanley. A number of cruise lines also travel there as part of a South American or Antarctic itinerary.
