The view here is breathtaking... so much ocean to see. When you walk the trail you get a stunning view of the St. John's Harbour. A must see!

What a great view. We watched a group of humpback whales feeding from the viewpoint. The interpretative centre is very informative and interesting.

What a view of St John's from here. The vista goes on and on. Noon Day gun set off and the noise is heard well into town. Most people seemed to have ear plugs, a must for kids. Learn about the usage of signal flags,...More

The views are breathtaking (especially of the harbour at night). The information that is in the courtyard is very informative about the history of Signal Hill.

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
