Cabot Tower is on top of Signal Hill lookout over the 'Narrows" entrance to the harbour. It can be very windy, but the views are fantastic. They have an interesting museum on the top floor and walking trails around the hill.

You will surely enjoy your visit to St. Johns by visiting Cabot Tower. On a late spring day you can see many Icebergs and whales from this point. I will always remember my visit to Cabot Tower and its fine museum.

Pretty much your usual gift shop. Found a few items to buy. Prices are reasonable for a gift shop. Lack of knowledge from the people working there was a let down.

Is a favorite place for me to go, just to sit and watch the city below. Cabot tower itself is really neat to go into. A great place to go to just relax.
