If visiting the city of St. John's this location overlooking the Harbour, the City and surrounding area, which includes a view to the horizon of the Atlantic Ocean is a 'Must Visit' location. The hill has quite a history going back to the 1700's. Aside...More

I headed out, one morning this past week, from the Sheraton Hotel near bye, to walk up to Signal Hill. There is construction at the base of the road leading up to the tower, but despite this, I was able to navigate my way there...More

Always worth it to see the breath-taking views. City on one side and the ocean on the other. A must visit

When in the area, this is a site worth visiting. Amazing views over St. John's Harbour from the top.

We went here after we had been to Cape Spear. As such, it falls second in our hearts, but the different view is nice. You can really see the St. John's harbor and how small the cut is to get in. The historical photos and...More

My wife and I had the pleasure of walking/hiking? the North Head trail from the bottom up, just this morning. (Our pleasure rating may change when we wake up tomorrow morning). It is a daunting trail from description and appearance, and may have a 500-ft...More

I'd probably cab it - especially if there are a couple of you. It shouldn't be too expensive. Old town St John's has 'The Trolley Line' - a hop-on hop-off, 10 stop loop. In 2016 it ran Wednesday - Sunday from 10am to... More
