We found out about this place on another travel related website whilst researching what to do whilst in St.Johns, where we had 2 extra days added whilst the itenary caught up with us.
We wanted to take the hop on / hop off bus, but that had finished for the season around 3 weeks previous, so we took a taxi from the cruise port costing $12 one way,
it was windy when we got to the top, but we were fine with that, found the signposts to all over the world including the place in Cornwall, UK, where Marconi received the signal marking the 1st trans atlantic phone call from.
There is a celebration gun on the hill normally fired at 12 noon in season, luckily for us there was some visitors from Ireland and they fired the gun especially for them, twice.
We went into the tower to see the history of that phone call and I climbed on to the roof, before seeing the souveniers in the gift shop.
We walked back down to the city stopping off at other places en route.
