This grand little plaza has an extensive choice of eating choices, great public entertainment (occasional concerts and other public goings-on taking place here), and a great number of gift and souvenir shops. It is easy to spend quite awhile here. We especially liked the Rock Fish and Chips cafe in the square and would happily frequent that business establishment again.... More

Went to Gibraltar on a day trip from Torremolinos and had a great time. The main street is busy and the people are so friendly, check out the jewellery shops offering great deals. We also did the mini bus tour of the rock which is also worth its money.

We have travelled to Gibraltar a few times now, whilst cruising, and always visit the main street particularly the jewellery shops which are amazing. Try Essardas on main street, we have met Jennifer a few times and she remembers us from years previously. No matter where we go on the island the people are generous and kind, pleasant and happy...

This is a happening Street! Full of shops selling clothes, food, souvenirs and so on. Part of it has traffic passing through, but the pedestrianised part is a lot calmer. Lovely place to be.

This is the high street. This is where you get cheap alcohol...£8.50 for a litre of gin. Also cheap perfumes a nd cosmetics you get an extra 10% off when there is a cruise ship in. Some good shops and some cheapy ones

It seemed to go on and on, there were hundreds of shops. The shop keepers were very helpful. In some of the jewellers at times they seemed a little pushy

You have a wide selection for everyone. From english shops such as Marks and Spencer, British Home -stores, Mango, Peacocks etc to Tabacco/alcohol shops at duty free prices. Little lace tabblecloth.bedlinen shops, jewelry shops where diamonds are certainly a girls best friend. And some wonderful places to stop for a bite to eat and a coffee. Well worth a visit.

Leaving Casemates Square, Main Street has an alluring range of shops for around two thirds of the mile or so walk uphill towards Trafalgar Cemetery. Most sell electricals, alcohol & tobacco, perfume or jewellery & watches, although there are a few clothes shops too. Although this is supposed to be a tax free zone, you need to have done your...

A great shopping area for dining and relaxation but if you flew in then bye your duty free at the airport in the way home as it is if much cheaper that the so called '"duty free" shops in town! We also used the local buses to get around with a senior hop on/off ticket at just £1-20 a day,... More

A nice walk through the town. Loads of recognizable shops from home. Lots of places to eat as well. Hot tip. You do not need euros for Gibraltar, stick with the good old £
