The entrance is beside the cable car for the Rock. The queue for the cable car was shocking so we went to the gardens. It's well worth a visit as it is very colourful and peaceful. Given the noise outside the gates it's a pleasant respite.

A good experience to visit, but not as much to see there as I would have liked. The entrance looks grand, but the plants there don't quite live up to the initial expectations they create.

The gardens were below our hotel, they are nice but not as nice as what I thought they would be. They could be better maintained. However, they are an okay walk through if passing by. But I wouldn't travel to come to them.

We walked though this quaint garden one day to see its charm and also to get to the other side to get a few supplies from a nearby supermarket.

What a great way to spend a few hours, wandering through these fantastic gardens, entry is FREE. The gardens are well tended, tidy and have a huge range of plants and trees. Be warned some of the walks are up hill (Like most of Gibraltar) but worth the effort, look out for the Italian sunken garden and the small pond... More

A nice place next to the Cable car. Lots of tracks - lots of flwers and bushes. Well worth a visit if in Gibraltar

Such beautiful grounds and so well kept. There are a stubbing array of plant, flowers and trees. One warning though, be prepared for the hills, can be quite tough, good exercise with the pram! You most go and see the little animal sanctuary at the top as well.

Gibraltar is a place where space is a commodity in high demand. The streets are narrow and bustling with people and cars. For this reason the botanical garden is a quiet and very interesting place, even if you are not a plant buff. There is also a lot of shade here. For kids there is a very nice and well... More

As this was opposite our hotel (The Rock) we walked through the gardens most days to get into town. It's a lovely haven full of flowers, trees and interesting plants. Plenty of lizards to spot basking on sunny walls too. Free to enter all but the wildlife park section.

These gardens are just by the cable car. They are free and well worth a look. There are some good views and they have some interesting plants. I have been to better botanic gardens (Kew and Sydney) but this is a nice area to relax and avoid the crowds.
