Shopping in Gibraltar

Edit This
One of the world’s most well-known landmarks and located in on one of the world’s busiest shipping routes, Gibraltar exudes the big city bustle while maintaining its historic elegance. Gibraltar Shopping always promises to be good, and with its location and competition – always promises to be cheap compared to the neighboring countries in Western Europe.

Main Street

Aptly named, Main Street is the main shopping street of the city. Nearly everything can be found here in its variety of shops – textiles like silk and cashmere, perfumes, handicrafts and electronics, you name it. All goods sold in Gibraltar have reduced taxes, thereby ensuring that prices are kept low. Jewelry, in particular, is the main selling item here, and there are shops simply clamoring for any tourist to step in and take a look. Most of the area has been marked out for pedestrians, so visitors need not worry that cars would pose as a safety problem. Public Market Gibraltar’s public market is an indoor market with fresh produce on sale. Located very near to the Main Street, just off Casemates Square, the public market is the best way to see locals in action, particularly on a weekend afternoon. The market building itself is very old – just about over 80 years of age, and exudes a sort of Mediterranean charm. Tourists may not interest themselves in the raw produce and vegetables, but there are stalls that sell cooked food and a taste of traditional local fare. Street food is also popular here, and there are stalls selling churros and chocolate-based sweets that are available for any tourist to buy and try. Gibraltar Crystal and Glassware Those looking for something more different and intricate to bring home can always look here for ideas. This crystal and glassware shop is better classified as a factory of sorts, selling everything from crystal goblets and dining ware to glass vases and ornaments. Engraving services are available for those who would like a personalized souvenir from Gibraltar. Visitors looking to try something different can opt for a glassblowing session, where masters of the art teach you to turn a glob of heated glass in a traditional furnace into something beautiful and memorable. Gibraltar offers so much in terms of the city sightseeing and shopping, being a place of importance historically and in the modern times. The shopping here is truly a different experience, with a tinge of history in every shopping spot you can find. ************************************************* Gibraltar is still one of the few remaining VAT free holiday destinations in Europe, offering its visitors a unique and diverse tax free shopping experience.

In addition to the numerous perfumeries, electrical stores and jewellers, Gibraltar’s Main Street is home to many British and European chain stores such as Benetton, BHS, Top Shop, Dorothy Perkins and the Body Shop, not to mention the last remaining Marks & Spencer's in continental Europe. The introduction of late night shopping on Thursday nights, means extra time for some retail therapy!

Main Street, Gibraltar's principal shopping thoroughfare, runs almost the length of town and most shops have windows packed with goods of all kinds at attractive prices. The range, originating from all over world, is tremendous. Items to look out for include jewellery, fine glassware, leather goods, watches, eyewear and the latest in hi-fi technology and TV's.

BUT beware, some shops may apply prices that are higher than in the rest of Europe so you may not benefit from ‘no VAT’ and ‘competitive prices’ and pay much more than expected.
