|Owned by:||The Crown|
Sir Ernest Shackleton stayed here at the conclusion of his famous expedition, the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Allegedly, he described his time there as being "far colder than any time on the ice". Whether that refers to the welcome he received or the temperature is not clear.
Government House is a listed building.
The estate was the site of a major battle during the Argentine invasion of the Falklands in 1982.
