The Rock itself is an impressive sight but it’s only when seen from on high that you appreciate why so many have wished to conquer this small isthmus and how it has played such an important part in world history. From the terraces of the Top Station you can gaze down over the town below, look North towards Sierra Nevada over the Costa del Sol, look East over the blue Mediterranean Sea and South across the Strait of Gibraltar to the Rif Mountains of North Africa. In short you will view 2 continents, 3 countries and the meeting point of 2 great bodies of water. Impressive is not the word!
Built and completed by a Swiss Cable Car manufacturer, Von Roll, in 1966 the Cable Car is a must for all visitors to the Rock. The Top Station is the best place to meet our most famous residents, the Barbary Apes, not to mention the views and the unique hand-held personal Multimedia Guide all included in the price of your ticket. You can also download, for free, all the info on the Multimedia Tour to your own personal mobile device via the CityGuide App – click here to download the App and learn more about the Cable Car Experience. On purchase of your Cable Car ticket you will be issued a WiFi code from which you can access your preferred app store and download absolutely free!
The Top Station is the perfect location to relax while enjoying the spectacular vistas with a hot or cold drink and a light snack from the Top of the Rock Café or enjoy a more leisurely meal or cocktail at the Mons Calpe Suite Restaurant and Bar. You won’t be disappointed. The Top of the Rock Souvenir Shop is also packed with unique gifts not available in town.
The Cable Car is located just beyond the southernmost end of Main Street right next to the Alameda Botanical Gardens. The GibraltarInfo exclusive and direct shuttle service will take you from the Gibraltar side of the frontier to the Cable Car base station. The shuttle bus can be found on the left side of the road just before the runway. Cross the road at the first set of traffic lights, keep walking passed the large advertising billboard and you will find the shuttle bus located just beyond that on the left. The shuttle departs every 30 mins however please be warned that traffic in Gibraltar, including the landing and taking off of planes, might cause delays to the service. The GibraltarInfo shuttle buses will have a sign on the front window. If in doubt, please ask for more information at the GibraltarInfo kiosk located on the Spanish side of the frontier and they will be able to offer assistance also see TICKETS for Shuttle Bus schedule.
If you are coming from the land frontier with Spain and have pre-purchased your tickets online or at the Gibraltarinfo kiosk, you are eligible to use the Gibraltarinfo Cable Car shuttle. This is located on the left-hand side of the road just before you cross the runway. Local bus number 10 also stops very near the Cable Car.
Local transport buses number 10 will all drop you off within sight of the Cable Car base station. Just ask the helpful bus drivers to point you in the right direction. There is stop near the frontier and near the Cruise Liner Terminal.
If you do plan to drive in (you are warned you might find yourself in a lengthy queue to enter and/or exit Gibraltar) and are looking for a car park you might be lucky and find a free space on Grand Parade. Please read the signs carefully as there are zones for local cars, free spaces and paid parking.
