Gibraltar offers different attractions and perks throughout the year. Peak season is from July to mid-September when British tourists tend to descend on the Rock and hotel prices rise. This is also when the Costa de Sol swells with Spanish and foreign holidaymakers. For cheaper prices and fewer crowds, consider April, May, September and October, when the weather remains warm and more favourable for walkers. The low season from November through March is generally mild and offers great winter sun deals. However, some services are reduced, particularly in neighbouring Andalucía.
With a wealth of bars and restaurants, captivating historical attractions and pretty gardens, Gibraltar has much to offer. Families are particularly spoilt with the Bay of Gibraltar’s wildlife watching opportunities. What’s more, there’s a delightful blend of raucous nightlife establishments and cosy waterfront bars, making it a fun destination for groups of friends. The cable car trip up to the Rock and surrounding views can also be very romantic, but make sure you avoid the cruise ship crowds which can swell the key attractions.

You can visit many of these historic sites today, with tours of the WWII Tunnels possible with advanced bookings. Other military remnants include O'Hara's Battery and the Great Siege Tunnels, where the British hewed rocks by hand in the unsuccessful 18th-century siege by the Spanish and French.
