maybe i am missing something, but this is just a street. it does again tie up all the attractions and guides visitors along the shops bars and restaurants on their way between attractions, and it does have UK style 'attractions' like the red postbox etc, but is it anything remarkable? i am not sure. there are some nice pubs to...

I doubt the prices are a real bargain, the mains treet is full of electronic brand tobacco and alcohol shops. Thedere's an M&S though and I foudn really nice shoes for cheap prices. Free toilets int he back of the Shopping Centre.

We had holidays in Gibraltar when our son was working there it is a beautiful place with a local feel to it. Main street is ideal to eat, drink, browse, grab a bargain as it is duty free. Cigarettes, tobacco, cigars, wines & spirits are all at a knock down price & plentiful. There are a number of camera/electrical shops... More

A serious tourist trap but very enjyable, my wife the two-handed shopper loved this. there is a huge variety of shops with of course the majority being tobacconists and spirits - Gibraltar is duty free so think 200 fags for £20, a litre of Bells for £6.50. The local currency is pounds, but you'll be given change in Gibraltar coinage... More

Main St is just like being in the UK only cheaper! Lots of great deals on drink alcohol and electrical goods shop around though and be prepared to haggle you will get a better deal... Don't forget to look at the buildings though, there is lots of history and interesting places to visit.

We did this at the end of a day on the Rock and enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the street and the shops and personalities along the street. At the western (Spain) end of the street is a giant plaza with many cafes. This is a good place to stop for a break and watch the world go by.

What remains in your mind is this strange atmosphere: you're in Spain, but people speak english and it's really like you were in GB... Absolutely worth the visit!
