Gibraltar (U.K.) overview

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...

Walked to the rock took around 30-40 mins. Could have got the bus or shuttle or cable car but was not prepared to pay silly money. The walk was amazing abd such beautiful sights. Wish we had longer in port to spend more time with the apes but would definitely want to go again.

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.

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.
