“Main Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Great shopping place. Nearly had a coughing fit when i saw the price of the fags.Elsewhere there are some very nice leather goods to be had at very reasonable prices. There are some very nice little cafes and some traditional english type pubs, interspersed with one or two very nice restaurants. It also leads into Casemates square (depending on which end you start from). A must if you visit Gib,but there again if you go for a walk then you can't miss it.

“Just like a UK highstreet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

It is nice to walk along, but it is very touristy and to be honest a lot of it you couldn't buy and carry for a tourist anyway, like TVs etc. There is no tax so bottles of drink is cheap but again, its the hassle of getting in through customs or if you only have hand luggage on your flight then you wont be able to take it through check in.

Otherwise, look forward to some recognisebale names like M&S, Early Learning Centre, Tommy Hilger and Mothercare.

“Alright if you lik perfume, electrics, jewellery and leather”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

This has certainly improved considerably over the years and is packed all day during the week with cruise passengers lining the streets.
Good for shopping for the above mentioned things, and for cigarettes, at less than £2.50 per pack. Alcohol is hit and miss.
The best bargains are furthest away from Casemates Square ad there are some very traditional pubs lining the street.
Worth walking all the way up and taking in some of the old buildings.

“Great little shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

I was walking the main street on a recent visit and came across a great little shop on main street opposite peacock clothing shop called aura creations, great bargains and they have great designs in silver jewellery fashion jewellery and other items like bag's and scarfes, the people inside were very friendly and helpful I would recommend this shop to all as most of the other shops are overpriced.
