“Beautiful view...”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is a must if you are in St. John's.
Was a very windy day when we went but it was such a peaceful moment being up on the hill.
We love the band signal hill, so this felt good actually being there and putting it all together !!
The view is incredible. The souvenir store has some neat things!

“The View!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Lovly historic site and a must see for visitors. The sun was shining and the skies clear when I visited so the panoramic view was just fabulous. The wind has a voice that high and it's much cooler so dress appropriately and wear comfortable footwear. You can make a real hike of the place.

“You can see Ireland from here...Almost”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The historic significance of the building is well explained by the guides and exhibits. As a visible landmark, it is both unique and recognizable worldwide. Viewing the harbour from this vantage point is veri impressive.
