Monkeys and the Rock! The edge of Europe
Sometimes when big city life is draining and you need a break from the busy London life, a change of scenery for the weekend is the best thing. If you’re looking to get away from the big smoke and escape to a sunny paradise, there’s no better place than the historic port and British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.
Just 3 hours flight away and 15 minutes walk from the airport terminal, across from the Spanish towns of La Linea de la Concepcion and Algeciras in sunny Andalusia. It’s the edge of Europe guarding the entrance to the mediterranean basin. Imagine waking up every day to the sound of the ocean and taking a stroll down to the beach where you can relax in the sun. If that sounds like the type of a getaway then Gibraltar is your destination. As a British Overseas Territory on the edge of Spain, Gibraltar is very, well, British and Spanish at the same time. The historic coastal town still maintains its rich culture and traditions but has adopted the British way of life with open arms.
