All reviews rock hotel wildlife park animal sanctuary plants and trees an open air theatre cable car peaceful oasis water features busy town flora and fauna worth a visit free entry lovely walk walk around sunny day main street top of the rock
By incident we ended up in the botanic gardens (we did take the mediteranean steps coming down the rock) and it was a great suprise! It's realy beautiful with lots of palms and cactecea. Much of them in flower. It wasn't crowded and we enjoyed...More
To get to the Botanical gardens from the main town is so easy. There's one main street in Gibraltar. Just follow the street to the cable car for the Rock & carry on for a couple of hundred metres & your there. It's free quiet...More
Despite the awful weather for our week-long stay, we could escape across the road to the Botanic Gardens between showers and later in the day when the rain stopped and managed to see the whole area. We are used to seeing these types pf plants...More
Luckily our wedding panned out on the day - just about ... But not sure it would have necessarily if the hotel staff and suppliers based in Gibraltar hadn't been so proactive and amazing while we were there.The Botanical Gardens was the most beautiful setting...More
What a fabulous place this is, even in the rain. There are some great plant specimens here and some wonderful hidden spaces. Unlike Kew Gardens all the plants are out in the open air and really thriving. The amazing thing is it is all free!!....More
After marrying in Gibraltar, this is the venue we had the majority our photographs taken.
The landscape is full of colour and unusual flowers. The bridge was perfect for some of our photographs.
A large area for the little one to run around to capture...More
Was very disappointed at what could be interesting and beautiful gardens. A lot of the plants were or appeared not to be looked after although there was a good variety of hibiscus plants. It is as though whoever runs this area has lost interest, a...More
We came across this while walking around Gibraltar. We didn't expect much because hardly anyone was there and there was no admission fee. We were pleasantly surprised though at the diversity of the park and wound up spending almost an hour there. I recommend it.

There is a ramp for disabled access on Red Sands road opposite red sands house. Alternatively the gardens can be approached from the long stretch along Grand Parade ( behind the large car park by the cable car) or approached from the top of the gardens at the entrance below the Rock Hotel. Please note that there are a lot of steep hills in some places around the gardens and some rough paths that are not suitable for wheelchairs.

Hi Ell. My wife and I got married in Gib in November last year. We were due to get married in the gardens at the end of October but Monarch going bust did for that. It was not possible to have the wedding in the garden in November so we ended up getting married on the top of the Rock which was stunning. the Gardens were open to walk around so we got the best of all Worlds!
As for your reception many wedding planners will have their favourites and the odd place that likely thanks them for their recommendation in one form or another. We chose our own based on reviews and the ability for them to cater for a carnivore like me and my wife who is all but vegan. We went to Embers which is near the old market hall just off the main square. for us it was perfect as we had the ceremony, took lots of snaps on the Rock and then walked the 10 minutes or so from the bottom of the Cable car down the main street to the square. We have eaten is some top places around the world and found the food to be absolutely on the money.
There were just 4 of us in our party but for about 20ish I am sure that they will be able to come to an arrangement to close the restaurant for your party. if you are looking at summer there is a lovely outdoor seating area as well and a warm internal one.
Hotels - We had booked the Sunborn, staying in one of their executive rooms for the Wedding, and also had a night at the Rock Hotel as we were bumped off our return flight by BA as over booked (trust me if they offer this to you take it. £350 compensation and a free night at the Rock with Diner and Breakfast!) our opinion was that the Rock was a little more old world but the view of the sunset over the bay drinking their signature cocktails is something both of us will always remember. Over all we would say that the Sunborn is 'Business 5 star' (lots of style, little substance) but the Rock Hotel proper old world 5 star. Staff at both could not have been more helpful or pleasant.
