Very well presented with many artefacts and information boards. A little strenuous, but we'll worth the effort. Some good siege history and plenty of cannon.

Very enjoyable experience, a huge undertaking for the soldiers at the time of the great siege, and instrumental in breaking the Spanish siege of the British garrison. You could spend a good couple of hours here and the views over the airfield are breathtaking.

The siege tunnels dug in the Rock of Gibraltar were used in a number of different wars. The scope of these tunnels are not to be believe. They wind and twist though out the rock. Tough angle walking out of the tunnels so be prepared.

A pleasant walk up to the caves with a great view of the Port and away in the distance to Spain. The caves are well worth a visit and give you a good feel for the history of the place.

Really enjoyed the tunnels and learning so much about the siege. It was very informative and interesting. You have to have good mobility for this visit but worth it

If your time is limited, for sure, taxi up. That way you are not at the mercy of a tour schedule.
