The Gibraltar Study Circle exists to study the stamps and postal history of Gibraltar, a British overseas territory located at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar.

The circle was founded in 1975[1] by Walter (Wally) Jackson[2] and is based in the United Kingdom but with worldwide members.

A journal, The Rock, has been published since 1975.

The circle is not to be confused with the Gibraltar Philatelic Society which is based in Gibraltar itself.
