Gibraltar. Free Glass Blowing demonstration.

Whilst many cruisers rush off to Morrisons supermarket or the very British High Street which claims to be cheap, there are many tours. Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. It has an area of 6.7 km2 (2.6 sq mi) and it borders Spain, so those beaches are an option. Sotogrande is not far.

If you go for a stroll, it is very familiar, very British. What might have you transfixed for a while, is the glass blowing which is well worth a visit. It is on the left as you walk into the square.  Take a look at our walk of the local town film.


The Rock is another adventure and that is another film. That needs thought and planning, or a tour or a taxi. Real hikers might try it by foot; we did. We also have an interview with Robert Daws, who you will recognise from Casualty and The Royal, who writes a crime series set on The Rock. (click picture for book)

If you are using Gibraltar to go into Spain, then take a look at our videos which cover the coast from here to Malaga. They include Sotogrande, Estepona, Duquesa, Marbella, Mijas, Malaga.

We stopped this time on the Britannia ship, Click on the picture to join the Britannia Group chat. If you are in Gibraltar, you are not doubt going somewhere in the Mediterranean. See our Mediterranean ports menu for the many guides.
