Port Stanley on East Falkland Island

Capital of the Falkland Islands

Stanley has been the capital of the Falkland Islands since 1845 when the seat of government was moved from Port Louis.  The choice of the site was dictated by the need for a secure and accessible anchorage for the sailing ships of the Royal Navy and was not universally popular; one contemporary reference describes it as "the most miserable bog hole" in the Islands.
