Gibraltar's Top of the Rock Cable Car Ticket
The Rock of Gibraltar features magnificent views of Europe, Africa, and the surrounding seas, but its 1,352-foot (412-meter) summit can be a challenge to climb. Enjoy a relaxing ride on a cable car and access the viewing spot with ease, looking out for its resident Barbary macaques. Save time with a short journey each way, keeping the rest of your day free to explore other sites in the historic city.
What to Expect

Arrive at the departure point on the Grand Parade. Enter the cable car station and board your gondola, riding to the top of the Rock in just a few minutes. Gaze at the stunning vistas as you ascend, before alighting at the summit, 1,352 feet (412 meters) above sea level. Enjoy incredible views of Gibraltar, Spain, and Morocco, looking out for significant landmarks, such as the Trinity House Lighthouse.

Relax with a snack or drink, available for purchase at the Top of the Rock Cafe, and meet the famous Barbary macaques who live at the peak. It is recommended not to touch or feed these wild animals, and keep a hold of your personal belongings, as their inquisitive nature can cause mischief. When ready, board a descending cable car and head back to ground level, leaving with unforgettable memories and unique snaps of your experience.

Cable Car

My experience with the Cable Car was very poor. Parking was a challenge and ended up with a towed car. The wait time was relatively long eventhough I pre-purchased the tickets online. The view from the cable car on our way up was fair compared...More

Best views over "the Rock" but at a price!

Let's face it, if you're not a WWII fan, there is not much to do or see in Gibraltar (besides the symbolic aspect of crossing a border and listen to some English while travelling through Spain). Getting up to the top of the Rock is...More
