Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Red brick icon with massive whalebone structure outside. You can’t miss it! Inside, look up to admire the Regimental flags. A simple interior - wooden pews and red brick walls - oozes history. Read the Campaigns on the embroidered pennants. Look out for the kneelers stitched with penguins. Unmistakeably English feel. Sunday Service welcomes everyone.

We were in Stanley on a Viking Ocean cruise and had some time before our excursion. So we walked a block away from the dock to visit Christ Church Cathedral.

It’s a lovely church with several friendly docent around to answer any questions that may come up.

If you’re ever in Stanley I would put this on your list of places to see.

I love visiting different churches and cathedrals around the world. This one was very unique as it is such a unique destination. The cathedral is quite small, but filled with interesting memorials and artifacts. The building is in some disrepair, and they are doing fundraising. I found the inside very moving.

Pop-up cafe was the first thing I saw when entering the Cathedral. Perhaps it's there to get funds for Cathedral building work from cruise ship passengers. It was closed when we went in last week, but there was no cruise ship that day.
There are a lot of memorial plaques - the same surnames pop up here and there. All a bit higgledy-piggeldy. If I'd been looking for a particular one it could have taken quite a while as they're not in any order.

Wasn't impressed by the whalebone arch outside. It's been restored and now just looks like four cement curved shapes. Pity.

A well presented place of worship with very friendly and helpful volunteers. The cathedral was small but quite imposing for such an isolated community.

Nestled between the water and the town this brick structure embraces the aura of Stanley. With farming and fishing and wars this Place of God was a place to keep all Together. Wonderful stained glass highlights this building which shows a strong British influence inside. Please take some time to witness this and visit with members/staff on hand if available.

When you walk out of the Church proceed straight ahead and enjoy the Whale Bone Arch amidst the gardens.

It's situated on Ross Rd which is on the seafront and near to most tourist attractions. It has the Blue Whalebone Arch outside which is a photo opportunity in itself. The Cathedral is quite small, but I didn't expect anything too big due to the size of Stanley. It has influences of the1982 conflict, but island history too which is always interesting and lovely to see. Well worth a visit.

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 passengers and there is a small tea shop as well.

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.
