We visited the gardens after walking from our ship. It was quite a walk but very pleasant and we were in no hurry. We have been to Gibralter before and having seen the monkeys and done the cable car we thought we would have a pleasant stroll through the fantastic sounding gardens. The gorgeous plaque and entrance suggest you are... More

We visited the gardens when we came off the cable car. They are amazing; plenty of seating to take a rest or to take in the sights. The gardens are huge so be prepared for plenty of walking if you want to see all the gardens. There is an outside theatre which would be good for shows. It was very... More

The gardens really were beautiful. Well worth an hour or so. Gibraltar really does have a lot to offer for a break - we had 5 days and filled them easily. Recommend.

This is a must visit garden for its proximity to the famous rock, and for its abundant flaura and fauna species. We saw various butterfly species, and even a yellow canary! Every area had different flowers and healthy plants. The only negative points I have is the fact that many of the information signs and plaques were faded and not... More

The plants and flowers are lovely,however in the animal park bit of the gardens are caged birds and a monkey,what a shame to see him/her caged up,especially when we had seen the monkeys in their original environment,on the rock. Still can't get over it,disgusted really and very sad.

this garden is very old and full of beauty, you can forget you are even in a town and enjoy the peace and maybe if you get lucky a wedding at the fountain, even see the pets corner or to have a picknic

Much of the gardens are kept preserved by many of the local harity groups her as well as many family members and ancestors of many of the... More

After seeing the queues for the cable car we went for a relaxing walk in the gardens. Very nice spot, lots of history and a very interesting place to spend an hour.

Walked through these every day whilst in Gibraltar. The history and botany all wrapped into one makes these gardens a must for travellers. Some parts are hilly which might not suit everybody but it is a great location in which to unwind completely during your stay

There is obviously work going on in the gardens as they have been tidied up over the last few months. I visit regularly (every few weeks) and a walk in the garden is part of my daily routine. The labelling of the plants seems to be improving or else labels have been cleaned so more are visible. The children's section... More
