Really enjoyed this scenic walk. If you're a keen hiker you can go quite a distance. We didn't walk very far, but enjoyed every second, and still managed some breathtaking views. The view from the top of the tower was great - despite what felt...More

I come home every year and have to make a trip to Signal Hill. It's rich history, scenic view of the city, the narrows, Cape Spear, and the walking trails, it's just breathtaking. The shop carries some awesome souvenirs as well. If ever you're in...More

This is a must see while in St. John's. The view of the city is great and could be a romantic spot to bring your wife in the evening after supper.

You cannot come to St John's without making a visit to Signal Hill. In reality you need to make 2 visits. One in the daylight and another after dark. This is a sight you MUST see.

Lovely views from here. Also inside is a gift shop and above some wonderful information on Marconi's history. We also went up to the top where it was extremely windy but such great views out to sea that it was well worth it

If you are in St-John's, drive up to Signal hill. Either drive all the way up to the top or park half way and take one of the many trails up to the top. Read the information/history panels along the way for some interesting facts...More

I'm sure on a sunny day this would have been fantastic, but still a great view of St. Johns. Fun to be as east as you can be in Canada.

I am not much for military sites, and expected this to be just another boring stop. Wrong. The views here were amazing and it also really helped me see the layout of the city. There is a beautiful lighthouse that you can see from up...More

A must-see! We walked from downtown St. John's to the top of Signal Hill. It's definitely possible, but I would recommend driving to the base at least. All along the hiking trails, you will find blueberry bushes!

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
