“A windy welcome to Newfoundland!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

High atop Signal Hill you can imagine the ships entring the harbour and the importance of identifying friend from foe! Gorgeous and historic.

Great place to go. I am 77 years old and had a hard time walking up the hills but it was a great view, The weather was very good and we could see all around Signal Hill . Worth the walk up the Hill.

A great place to enjoy fabulous views. Good parking, definitely a must to visit. We were lucky to have clear weather and one could see 360 degrees around!

“Not For The Weak of Heart”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The view from Signal Hill is amazing. We hiked down the paths and even though I walk a lot, it was challenging. I wouldn't attempt it with young children as there were too many areas where you could slip. We were commenting that it would take emergency crews a long time to get there to respond as they also would have to hike to get to anyone in distress. Winds can be very strong here, so hang onto your hats. Well worth the time, if I lived there, I would make that walk part of my daily routine.

“Rife with history.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The view is amazing, and the history of this place is equally so. Marconi sent his first transAtlantic signal from this site. You can feel the importance of this site in your bones as you read about its history!!!
