Mainly traffic free and very frequently cleaned. A good mix of international chain stores with local companies, all seeming to be good on price. Several tobacco, booze, jewel leery and electronics independents. Plenty of cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants. Easy walking from the town gate to the main square.

Every day seems like a Saturday here, hustle and bustle, however since my last visit many of the local traditional shops have given way to a multitude of jewelers shops. |Some bargains to be had but need seeking out.

we went into many shops and their are some good bargains to be had ! But remember that you have to go through the boarder maybe so be aware of their rules when passing from Spain to Gib and visa versa ! their are many coffee shops and little places to eat during the day !

An interesting mix of shops to amuse you. You need to do a bit of bargaining in jewellery, electronic and luggage shops. Very cheap booze and cigarettes, even cheaper in Gibraltar airport duty free shop. It pays to compare a few shops prices as they do vary by a couple of pounds either side.

There's not a lot to say - imagine the high street in any middle-England town. Perhaps with a little more rubbish strewn about and with better weather!

I walked along Main Street to just look out for something interesting to buy in Gibraltar. Ended up buying soap from the Soap Shop with soaps handmade in Gibraltar. Really cute stores along the street!

If you are after jewelry or a specific watch, few places give you a better price than the avasilabel shops on Main Street. If you are planning on travelling to Gibraltar and want a good price on a specific item, get in contact directly with a retailer and arrange for collection. All around great prices and very good customer services... More
