Covering an area of around 7,500 square kilometers in the southern part of the Atlantic Ocean, the Falkland Islands encompass some 778 islands. Despite the fact they're only 483 kilometers off the coast of Argentina and 12,000 kilometers from England the islands are a British Overseas Territory.
The culture of the Falkland Islands is essentially analogous to that of British culture. The Falkland Islands have a large non-native born population, mainly white and from England (and to a much lesser extent, other parts of the British Isles), but also from Saint Helena.
The Falkland Islands are basically represented by two wider territories: East Falkland Island and West Falkland Island and several hundred small islands. During time, Spanish people occupied the territory, so local influences of these strongly personalized cuisines can be found, especially in the only city, Stanley.
