Enjoyed hiking the Grand Concourse from the pier up to the hill on a fairly clear day. Windy on the top but nice views of the narrows and coastline. Canon placements are neat.

Must see on a clear day. A great view of the harbour and North Atlantic Ocean. It’s worth the treck up if you are a history buff. In 1901, the first ever transatlantic wireless signal was received by Marconi. Also, due to it’s strategic placement...More

Go. Close your eyes. Breathe in history. Imagine what it must have been like to get that first transatlantic message. Been there twice now and would go back to just see the harbour. Feel the mist on your cheeks when you are in the clouds...More
