UKAHT would not be able to deliver its programme of conservation and education to a worldwide audience without the generous support of other organisations. 

Antarctica is an extremely difficult and costly place to operate. With the fantastic support UKAHT receives from its sponsors, it manages to reach goals that would otherwise remain unobtainable. UKAHT has an ambitious conservation programme to restore our British bases on the Peninsula. Port Lockroy remains our flagship operation, offering a window to life on base as it was for the early scientists in the late 1950’s to visiting tourists. UKAHT manage six historic sites in total, all of which require care and attention to ensure they remain accessible and representative of their history and reflect the human endeavour which went into their creation and the important scientific research carried out on base.

JELD-WEN (Formerly Boulton and Paul) created the original prefabricated building ‘Bransfield House’ at Port Lockroy during WWII, which included the original windows, and was flat packed and assembled on site by the Royal Navy.

Our Mission

We exist to preserve, enhance and promote British Antarctic heritage to engage, inform and inspire a global audience.


We support UK and overseas polar institutions and individuals with grant aid towards outreach and education projects that fulfil the mission of the Trust.


Conservation is at the heart of everything we do. The practical care and management of our historic sites and their artefacts in Antarctica is both our biggest challenge and our greatest responsibility. Our ongoing work to protect and stabilise these buildings and artefacts aims to ensure they will be available for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
