Very relaxing Amble I don't know much about botany. It did stir up an interesting walk. Look up as well as look forward.

Not the best time of year to go, but in the spring and summer I would have probably given this a very good rating. It was interesting to see the different types of plants growing. There was a small zoo at the top which is worth a look There are good paths and plenty of seating for the weary.

A really nice place to stroll around and a gentle walk back up to the Rock Hotel fro afternoon tea. Immaculate clean and some good lower level views of Gibraltar.

I understand that it was a national holiday but the place ( gardens ) were filthy. McDonald's packets everywhere and the smell of urine was... More

The gardens are very clean and litter free, the flowers even at this time of year are really pretty, plus the odd glimpse of a butterfly or bird. There is also a beautiful pond with Koi carp and the whole... More

Very nice gardens with a great deal of vegetation from across the globe, some are just outdoors and some tropical ones indoors. Think in advance about finding a proper parking spot as it can be a real problem in the neighborhood.

Very pretty and lush, even in December. Tricky to negotiate if you are unfirm or in high heels! Close by the cable car, so you can visit both attractions in one day.
