What a fabulous view of St. John's and Harbour and Fort Amherst from Signal HIll. Tattoo in summer is great and impressive event...great for photo and video opportunity. Wonderful view of the city lights at night. During May'June- iceberg sightings. A must see event for tourists to St. JOhn's. Often there are the HUGE luxury cruise ships in the harbour as well!

Signal hill is a must visit. The trail that is available for hiking around the hill is long and difficult but truly worth the effort. If you take your time and make the complete loop it would probably take a couple of hours to complete. This isn't for the out of shape as the climbs are significant in some areas (although the trail is beautifully maintained with stairs and clear paths). You will experience a tremendous view of the harbour, the ocean and the cliffs below as yo make you way along the trail. If you prefer you can drive to the top and just enjoy the view from there or venture part way along the trail and then back up. Don't miss it!

I was out there and an actual Iceberg floated by!! But that being said.. I am an Italian citizen and I love Marconi.. SO to have the priviledge to go to this museum/signal hill it was special.. The bluffs around it are just an amazing view.. the weather was spectacular that day.

Great view of the harbour and city, a must if you are going to be in St. John's. Nice walking areas and friendly people, plus a sense of history.

Loved the walking trails. Lots of signage and little historical information on site. The staff in the tower was very friendly.
