Gibraltar is packed full of so much to see and do. In the evening Gibraltar can especially come alive. Depending on your desires, there’s always something for you to do.
Right in the middle of Gibraltar’s shopping district you’ll find Casemate’s Square at the end of Main Street. This area is packed with nearly anything you could wish to buy. CafÃ©s, restaurants, bars, and stores. This is the heart of both, Gibraltar’s daytime shopping and Gibraltar’s nightlife.
Casemate’s Square was formerly a barracks and the site of public executions. The buildings were used as an ammunition depot. It now is home to many shopping and tourist opportunities. You can purchase nearly anything your heart desires. Household goods, electronics, tobacco, alcohol, perfume, practically everything is available.
Traveling up Main Street, you’ll come upon Gibraltar’s Parliament. In the rear of Parliament is John Macintosh Square, which houses City Hall. While heading south, you’ll come across the Courts of Justice. It was here that Yoko Ono and John Lennon were married in 1969. The King’s Chapel and the Governor’s Residence are both in the area as well. Built in the late 1490’s, the Governors Residence, named the Convent, was constructed as a convent for Franciscan Friars.
For dancing or drinks you can head to Little Rock CafÃ©, The Tunnel or All’s Well. Little Rock CafÃ© offers incredible food and a nice outdoor eating area. The Tunnel offers a fully stocked 40′ bar, and a decent menu. They do a good job of combining a club and pub. They have five large TVs for sporting events and a sound and light system that would blow you away. All’s Well is a theme pub, you can be sure a good time will be had once the sun sets.
To take your chances with Lady Luck, you can head over to Gala Casino. Gala Casino offers poker, slots, sports betting and bingo. They also have a restaurant if you begin to feel famished while trying your luck.
For a real treat, you can pay a visit to Gibraltar Time Tunnel, the world’s only holographic cinema. In about 20 minutes, the show will take you on a trip through the fascinating history of Gibraltar.
If you take a trip to Gibraltar and claim you didn’t have fun, you can only blame yourself. There is so much to do and see, you couldn’t possibly leave without having been entertained. If you enjoy keeping busy while on vacation, Gibraltar could drain you. You’ll be completely happy you saw as much as you did, but you may need a vacation from your vacation upon returning home.
