South Atlantic islands : South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands : South Georgia Island : King Edward Point
King Edward Point is a kilometer across King Edward Cove from Grytviken on South Georgia Island. The Government Officer and Post Officer live here. A Fishery Research station is run by scientists of the British Antarctic Survey for the Government. Winter population of around 14 swells to twice that in summer.
The base is home to government officials and researchers; visitors are welcome to pass through on their way to the end of the point, but should take care not to disturb those who live and work here.
Shortly after the base was built the residents added what was felt to be an important missing feature, and today the bar is the center of the area nightlife. Sadly, it is for use of base personnel only.
The base is for the use of researchers and government officials only. Any visitors will need to sleep aboard their boat.
Mail can be sent from the post office at King Edward Point (KEP).
