Base A British Base "A" is worth the trip to explore while visiting the Antarctic Peninsula. It's the only working post office & museum. It's a great place to check out a real working base while in the land of the ice. Don't forget to a wee bit of shopping in the gift shop, don't worry they accept credit cards or Euros, Pounds or US Dollars & please don't fell guilty for shopping because all the proceeds go to funding the base. Also, you can't forget the priceless views of the penguins from the window. For more about the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust please visit: www.ukaht.org/!
