After a couple of days of walking the main streets of Gibraltar with the hustle and bustle and honking horns, we needed a break from the noise and the Botanic Gardens certainly was the place to spend a quiet morning. October isn't the best time to see the flowers but we enjoyed wandering round the gardens under the shade of... More

Lovely, tranquil gardens with a variety of plants that thrive on the climate. Lots of benches where you can sit and chill, and quite a few of them are tucked away, so perfect if you want to get away from things. Free to get in too, which is also a bonus.

Well worth a visit, well maintained, you can see the rock hotel from here, lots of different species of plants. The animal part is well worth a peak. The entrance way is impressive, there are steep parts to it, and good pair of shoes would be disirable.

I used to play in here when I lived in Gib as a child. It's very different - now it is turning into a real botanic garden. Parts of it are really beautiful and there are promises of more to come. Worth a visit.

The most magnificent vegetation and some of the spectacular butterflies I have ever seen. These nice gardens are easy to walk, I used a special mobile phone app for Gibraltar, so even solo without the guide I got to learn a lot about the history and the fact of this attraction. Recommended.

We got married in the Botanical Gardens on 13th September 2014. The venue is excellent, we had visited earlier in the year to check it out. The ceremony was conducted in a private area of the gardens, you walk along a bridge before you enter the gates in to the garden. Photos are taken in all areas of the gardens... More

We walked through the gardens every day on our way to and from our hotel and it really is a little oasis. Beautifully designed, peaceful and enchanting.
