“An absolute must”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you are visiting St. John's, make sure you have time to visit Signal Hill. In fact, you should probably plan a trip to St. John's to see it. One of the most beautiful spot in the country with great exercise on top of it. I have seen Signal Hill during the day, at night, during the summer and also during the winter. It never deceives, you always see something you have not seen the previous time and the views are unbelievable...360 degrees of them. The ocean, the port, the city... it's hard to describe it all. The history that comes with the place is also very important....let's face it, whitout Marconi doing his thing up there, I may not be writing this review as all communications might have not evolved the way they did. Take your time, visit the monument, take in the views and walk on the many trails.

“Oh what a view!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Did the hike around the new Signal Hill Park and took some photos on the lookout. The new lookout behind the Visitor's Centre is a must. I can't wait to go back in the night to see the lights of the city and harbour.

“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!
