Saint Helena Island Info

You can call up the above menu from anywhere using the popup menu icon (top, right).

There are quite a few places in the world called St Helena (or some variation thereof), but our island has the distinction of being the original! Our St Helena was discovered and named in 1502. The places in America and Australia now called St Helena were all not named such until the 19th Century, at least 300 years after we claimed the name…

 

To explain: although St Helena is over 8,000Km from the UK, Saints remain fiercely loyal to crown and country.
