I would say if your going up the rock anyway this place is worth a glance around. My partner did get a bit bored half way through but that's because he's not into history. I enjoyed it. Plenty to look at and plenty to read about.

These Great Siege Tunnels are also a must see when visiting Gibraltar. The Great Siege lasted for three years seven months twelve days and the tunnels are a tribute to man's survival under extreme circumstancses.

Excellent and impressive military tunnels dating back to the great siege in the 1700's. It had rained the day before our visit (January 2016) and the water dripping into the tunnels only added to the atmosphere. A must do if you are visiting Gib. I did the ww2 tunnels on a previous trip to Gib, and in my opinion if... More

The tunnels are fascinating for anyone with an interest in history, either engineering or military. The tunnels are cool in January,so take a fleece. I imagine that in summer they will be much warmer. There has been a lot of effort made with set pieces to illustrate the fortifications. Dioramas with multi lingual narration make the learning experience enjoyable, and... More

You have to do this just to learn some real history of the Rock. A very well planned walking tour with lots of very interesting facts about the rock and how the tunnels were produced and why. For instance did you know the word Sharpnel was actually the surname of the British Army office who invented the 1st ordnance designed... More

Great place to visit. Very atmospheric. A lot of blood sweat and tears must have gone into the creation of the tunnels and the dragging of the cannons up the rock. Full of admiration for the soldiers who worked on the tunnels.

There are a couple of 'must dos' when you visit Gibraltar. The tunnels are fascinating especially when you consider that they were dug out by hand with rudimentary tools to assist. Lots of interesting facts to read and listen to in a variety of languages and it certainly makes you appreciate the history of Gibraltar. One word of warning is... More

Worth a look as part of a trip around Gibraltar and helps you get an idea of the history that led to Gib becoming British. Interesting view of the airport where the main road crosses the runway.
