Narrative

Denominada por la Expedición Inglesa, que dirigió Edward Bransfield, el 24 de enero de 1820 recibe su nombre en reconocimiento del soberano reinante de aquella época en Inglaterra. Esta bahía rompe la continuidad de la costa S de la isla Rey Jorge por un trecho de 4 millas. Las costas de la bahía están constituidas por acantilados de hielo; sobre la costa N descarga un extenso glaciar del que se desprenden trozos de hielo.
