The Cable Car

The Cable Car is one of the ways to the "Top of the Rock" and a must-see attraction for all visitors to Gibraltar. The journey takes passengers 412m above sea level in approximately 6 minutes offering spectacular views all the way. From the Top Station one has uninterrupted views southwards across the Strait of Gibraltar to Africa; westwards, of the City of Gibraltar and across the Bay to Algeciras; a birds eye view of Gibraltar airport and Spain to the north; and the blue expanse of the Mediterranean and the beaches and cities of the Costa del Sol to the east. Visitors can also pick up a bite to eat at the Top of the Rock snack bar and watch the apes get up to their tricks from the comfort of the air-conditioned inside viewing area.

Pocket Multimedia Tour: A personal state-of-the-art Interactive Multimedia Guide is available to all adult passengers on arrival at the Top Station, allowing passengers to gain an insight into Gibraltar's fascinating history whilst being guided around the Top Station terraces.
