Fascinating sense of history.

We only went through a small part of the tunnels, but it was very well worth the effort. I would love to have more time to explore.

Something that you don't even know exists! This is really impressive - learning about the tunnels and their history. It is a walk for those with stamina, as the tunnels dive down (easy walking) and of course, you then have to walk BACK UP. There are exhibits and plenty of explanation as you go so leave enough time for that.... More

We walked up to the tunnels from main street. We bought a ticket at the Moorish Castle which included the castle, these tunnels, the caves and several other smaller attractions which at £10 was great value. We wanted to spread the visit to these over a couple of days and Paul at the castle was very helpful, writing a note... More

Visited here and liked the history, the views back over towards Spain and the tunnels themselves. Simple but very much worth a visit, just adds to the strong history of Gibraltar. Only annoying thing was external tour guide who kept telling us to turn off the audio descriptions as it was getting in the way of her talking to her... More

We'd stopped by here after visiting the Monkeys. Worth a visit though there's a good bit of walking involved and on the way back out of the tunnels I found myself needing a break. How long you spend is really up to yourself, we read each article and savoured the views and it took around 45 minutes!

Unfortunately we were running short of time when we got to the Tunnels, so only got to see a small section of the exhibition. You only realise when you're inside, just how impregnable these defences are, and the strategic importance. Lots of information plaques outlining the history of the site, along with real canon implacements and manikins of the soldiers... More

Great spot to see Gibraltar sprawled at your feet and the city's airport runway cut in two by a highway. The caves themselves with cannons and lookout spots add to the charm and (British) history of the place.

The story is interesting. For history buffs it would be worth it. For me there were probably better options to explore

I had spotted what looked like cave exists in the Rock during a walk from the airport to Catalan Bay. These turned out to be some of firing positions from the Siege Tunnels. The tunnels are difficult to get to without a car. I had a long walk down from the cable car. The route is poorly signposted and may... More
