That's it really, it has a smattering of small English shops, debenhams is opening there soon! M&S is the largest, lots of stores selling cheap electronics, tobacco and alcohol! Lots of pubs, bars and restaurants selling English breakfast and fish and chips. Bit sad there's nothing else to show for the British culinary scene here but it is what it... More

Busy shopping street at the heart of Gibraltar. Lots of duty free shops plus familiar high street names such as M&S, Mother care etc. Plus the tourist office is close, worth visiting for information as well as the Gibraltar museum. Worth a walk round if you are looking for duty free type products.

Very long shopping street with all kinds of shops you can imagine. The small streets that come off the main one are very interesting and picturesque. Many jewelry stores! Always many visitors go shopping there, especially those from English cruise ships - they get 50% discount across all of the stores - others unfortunately not which is a pity.

While there is not a lot of land mass, this place has a lot of history, the Main Street has a quaint village feeling, with lots of nice shops and eateries. Due to the different countries that have inhabited the place over the centuries you can find British and Spanish influences with a number of high end shops supplying Italian... More

If you come to Gibraltar and do not walk up and down main street a few times you are missing out. This is their main shopping street, having said that many of the shops are for the cheap cigarettes and booze. Also some pubs down here that do pub grub type meals. Watch out as on days when a cruise... More

The main street was vibrant with singing, guitar playing and lots of bars. Less to see, cost of various items were from very cheap to silly high prices. Overall a definate place to visit. Plenty to do for a few days at least. Stunning views out to sea from everywhere you go. Really recommend this rock. The apes are great.... More

Main street is just ok. It is in dire need of a bit TLC to ensure tourists keep coming. Many of the shops look run down and tired.
