Our Flagship - Port Lockroy
The United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust works to conserve Antarctic buildings and artefacts, and to promote and encourage the public's interest in its Antarctic heritage.
Besides its flagship site at Port Lockroy the Trust conserves five other British historic sites on the Antarctic Peninsula. The Trust supports sister organisations to look after heritage sites in other parts of Antarctica.
Each season a dedicated team lives and works at the base running the museum and post office at Port Lockroy and continue with the conservation of the buildings and artefacts.
Keep updated with team and follow the Port Lockroy blog.

Scott's and Shackleton's Centenaries
We have just finished celebrating Robert Falcon Scott's British Antarctic Expedition 1910 to 1913. It is one of the most famous and stirring stories of world exploration.
But we are about to start celebrating Ernest Shackleton's most famous expedition, the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition 1914 to 1917. He lost his ship Endurance in the Weddell Sea and was forced to make one of the most famous open boat journeys in history. Forthcoming information and events can be seen at www.shackleton100.org.
The Trust's sister organisations - Antarctic Heritage Trust (New Zealand) and Mawson's Huts Foundation look after historic huts from the heroic era built by Borchgrevink, Mawson, Scott, and Shackleton.
