About the location
Gibraltar is a welcome home from home for any UK epxat or traveller and a “little slice of England” for anyone coming from further afield. It offers UK high-street shops as well as smaller boutiques, perfumeries, IT and gadget shops and a range of delights for any keen shopper. For anyone wanting more than shops, the Gibraltar Museum is a treat – filled to the brim with artefacts, models, displays and even the odd Mummie or two! There’s also plenty to keep you entertained including an ice skating rink, two cinemas screens, ten pin bowling lanes, an amusement arcade, restaurants and bars and a gym all housed in King’s Bastion Leisure Centre, a lovingly restored military fortress that was once used to defend Gibraltar against invading forces during the 18th century. For worship, tranquillity or reflectiveness, visit Kings Chapel, St Andrews Church, Holy Trinity Cathedral, The Great Synagogue and the Flemish Synagogue or Catholic Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned.
