Great shopping experience - purchased a pair of binoculars really good value & the shop keeper game me a discount. Only problem is the smoking staff outside many stores causing you to hold your breath & make a run to enter the premises! Cigarette butts seem to be discarded on the pavements causing an unsightly & undesirable litter problem.

Love the cobbled pedestrian street, great selection of shops some larger chain stores & many individual shops to peruse, only problem seems to be the many members of staff who are allowed to smoke their cigarettes outside the stores & discarded the ends/butts onto the pavement ! What puzzles me is why ? the street cleaners to do a wonderful... More

The shops along the Main street are great for the duty free shopping of all kinds and you didn't feel pressurised by any of the shops we went into. The small cafes,restaurants and bars were very good. The only complaint is that we needed a lot more cash to take advantage of the fabulous shopping.

Good St for shopping although prices in my opinion are not cheaper unless you want cigarettes or booze.There are a lot of pubs which look like more English than England.The square is lovely with lots of places to eat.There is an area just off the main St called Irish and this has lots of poundlike shops and lots of cheaper...

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.
