We had a wander around but there really wasn't very much to see. The giant gun was good, we went inside it which was a bit novel. The views are great. It's quite a walk to get there.

We were on holiday in Spain, but I really wanted to see Gibraltar, so we drove there. It was a pitty we came a bit late, so we had only like 40 mins until closing, but it was definitely worth it. I liked it, but...More

This is up a very steep long hike from the road between the cable car station and the caves. It is not included in the inclusive ticket and costs £3 each. Great views but similar to others on the rock. No toilets or cafe etc.

We came but was closed so we can't say more. A part that we pay for the visit and we could get in. So maybe was the taxi that lie to us ... hope to visit next time

O'Hara's battery is located up a steep hill quite a walk from the rock sumitt. There are no toilet or drink facilities at the top. The mist from one side is very welcome.

Must visit location while in Gibraltar, it is part of Great Siege Tunnels while visiting Upper Rock.

Just as Fascinating as the other parts of the Tunnels. Good informative boards up, with sound effects as well! Lots of human sized models to give authenticity to the displays.

The gates to O'Hara's Battery were locked when we arrived and we would have been disappointed except our guide, John Lopez (Gibraltar Rock Tours), had a key. Breathtakingly beautiful views. At 420 meters above sea level this is the highest point on the rock with...More

Had a great day exploring the top of "the Rock" but the gates to O'Hara's Battery were locked when we arrived which was a bit of a disappointment as we understood that it should have been open. Fully understand that it isn't always possible to...More
