Could be very nice but covered in weeds. Very quiet as not that noticeable it's there but worth a short visit.

Pleasant as opposed to amazing with an interesting variety of plants, the wildlife park was also good but very small....but the Lemur walk was brilliant, amazing that you'll could stand next to one and have it touch you.....although I took the advise posted and did not return the gesture!

We walked though the gardens early evening and then went to the Rock Hotel for a G&T to watch the sunset - magical evening

Spent a morning here. Very hilly so not for the infirm but a lovely place to just have a stroll. There is a small zoo with a £5 entrance fee which is well worth the money although quite challenging underfoot.

We eat our lunch here when we visit Gibralta. The gardens are very pleasant and it is right next to the Cable car.

Situated right next to the cable car, The Alameda Gardens are worth a visit. The gardens were first established in 1816 and are rich in history, which you will... More

Visited twice when in Gibraltar in the evening. I was amazed to find it virtually empty. Just the place to chill after a long day, listening to the birds and spotting the different varieties of plants. All free for you to enjoy.
