About Gibraltar (U.K.)

One of the "Pillars of Hercules," Gibraltar is an historic landmark with British and Spanish influences. Guarding the entrance to the Atlantic, the great rock still serves as Britain's threshold to the Mediterranean. Take a cable car to the top of the rock for a spectacular view of two continents as well as the famous Barbary apes.

Booked the cable car at home from the Gibraltar website and the tickets are valid for six months. We walked from the ship to the cable car which took about 30 mins and joined the que for prepaid tickets which was much faster. Wonderful views from the top and we decided to walk down and then through the town and back to the ship. Also visited St Michael's cave and the 1902 gun battery on the way down...


This is one of my favourite ports, it’s just a shame we didn’t stay there long enough! Duty free shopping was great! And some lovely little cafe/restaurants in the main square that are not to be missed. Fairly easy walk from the port into the main town square which takes around 10/15 minutes for someone waking at a reasonable pace.


Pre-booked tickets for the cable car to see all sights at the Rock. We only had 6 hours in Gibraltar, about 5 by the time we got off ship and the time we had to be back by. Non of the taxis at port were willing to take us to the cable car, they wanted us to do a tour with them. Walked to town which took about 15 mins and a taxi there took us (£4.30) got there early enough so only waited 10 mins for cable car. Saw the majority of all sights at the rock but it was a mad rush of crazy fast paced walking as we also wanted to go Main Street. Overall enjoyed it, although time was so limited so by the time we got back on board we were knackered. Gibraltar is fab for cheap alcohol and tobacco and I got great price on some of my favourite perfumes saving a fortune on what I’d pay back in the U.K. enjoyed the rock but it’s one of those places that once you’ve done it you’ve no reason to re-visit again.


What can you say about Gibraltar shop shop shop til you drop there is bargains galour at trip up the cable car is a great way to see the monkeys and a visit to the caves is a great place to visit there is also plenty of history to take in .

We love Gibraltar having visited several times before. We just walked into town and had a mooch and a cocktail. A tip is to walk in if able rather than a taxi as it's only a 15 minute stroll.
