Walking through the tunnels (with plenty of fresh air blowing through) I was amazed at the work that had gone into making the tunnels. The history and information was great it's well worth a visit. The view of the entire runway from outside the tunnels is very impressive too.

Great part of a visit to the rock and shouldn't be missed. Very informative and provides some great views. Also good for keeping fit, to see everything and all the gun ports you need to trek down a long series of tunnels, and whilst it's always great going down hill just remember you need come back up. Phew!

I found the history here mildly interesting, but the sheer fact that troops needed to blast through all that rock makes this place interesting. The exhibits are a bit weak, though.

We took our family up to the great siege tunnels.Another hidden Gem in Gibraltar . Our bus had to park up about 150 metres from the entrance and we walked the final way up to the entrance . It was uphill so I was pleased it was a little cloudy. We were met by monkeys and fantastic views over the... More

What a surprise this was! I had no idea that there was this complex of tunnels with guns all pointing across the border to Spain. Best way to get there is hire a taxi van and they will take you to the top with the monkeys and to the Limestone caves for £22 pp including entrance fees.

As you maneuver through the labyrinth of tunnels, you will find information signs explaining a particular area or event. According to the history of the Great Siege Tunnels, the British wanted to recapture the Rock of Gibraltar from France and Spain resulted in the building of a series of tunnels. The tunnels were built with the shear strength of men’s... More

We decided to visit the tunnels shortly after arriving at the top on the rock and decided to walk there planning to go back to the top; what the map doesn't show is that the walk is quite steep and we didn't walk back to the top afterwards. The tunnels themselves are interesting with a well written history and displays.... More

A piece of history that holds your interest, with exquisite views of the Country and of Spain. Well worth a visit especially as part of a tour of the rock you can book for £22 a person.

The kids enjoyed running through the tunnels and the history of the place was interesting. Spending time on the rock is a must if you visit and as long as you're there you might as well visit the tunnels. Not crowded and we really enjoyed the views and the monkeys (who were incredibly tame). Take a taxi up the mountain... More

Beware this is around half way up the rock. If you take a cable car to the top and walk towards it you may not want to walk back towards the top so be prepared to walk to the bottom. What I would say though is that the tunnels were well worth a visit to get a feel of the... More
