You only have to look at any photo of the west face of the rock and you will notice that the upper half of the rock is mostly green. It is this upper part of the rock that has been designated the upper rock ‘nature reserve.’ in order to enter you must first pay an entrance fee.
There are three ways to enter the Reserve.
- Jews Gate
- Moorish Castle
- Cable Car
Should you buy a Cable Car ticket and a Walkers Ticket you are free to roam the Upper Rock accessing the Skywalk, Windsor Suspension Bridge and various footpaths. However, you will not be allowed access to any of the attractions e.g. St Michael’s Cave which are found within the Nature Reserve. You will be required to Nature Reserve Tickets. These can be purchased at the Cable Car and at the Gibraltarinfo kiosk on the Spanish side of the frontier. However please be aware that the tickets issued at the kiosk are vouchers only and will need to be redeemed at the Cable Car ticket office.
If you do purchase your tickets via this website or from the GibraltarInfo Kiosk located on the Spanish side of the frontier, you will need to redeem the vouchers at the Cable Car ticket office. You are also entitled to use the FREE shuttle service to and from the frontier to the Cable Car and to use the Fast Track queue at the Cable Car ticket office which is usually quicker and shorter.
