“Almost Aerial Views”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Views of the City of St. John's and the harbour entrance are fantastic. Good place to view icebergs in the spring. Lots of history here with Marconi having broadcasted the first trans-atlantic wireless message.

“Great views, and nice gift shop.”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Not to be missed if in St. Johns. Best views of the city from the harbour side. The gift shop was well stocked and very friendly.

“A view like no other”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

You look out over open ocean on one side and over the city on the other side. You can see whales when in season and also a great place to view icebergs. Dress warm because it is always windy.

“The Hill!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We walked up from our B&B on a cloudy day. It was SUPER windy when we got up there, but such an amazing historical site. Read all the little boards and hit up the visitor center if you can. It's fascinating when you look at Canadian history. I had no idea that St. John's played such an integral role in Canada and switched hands with the french so many times!
