Today the Kings Bastion is a leisure centre for locals and tourists and boast a cinema, restaurant, bowling alleys, ice rink, gym and much much more. The leisure centre has been beautifully integrated with glass ceilings and modern architecture alongside the original walls so it actually feels as if you are in a fort or museum while enjoying the modern facilities. Really there’s not enough that can be said about this wonderful renovation that Gibraltar has done.
