“Worth a visit to see Table Mountain from a different view”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

There's nothing up there other than a viewing area but is worth a visit to see Table Mountain and Lions Head from a different perspective. Also the Paragliders are jumping from there so is fun to watch them :-) The City looks closer for you to enjoy and take tons of pictures.

“Not very interesting”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I hear it's a great place to hike as well, but otherwise looking at the cannons isn't all that exciting.

“Picture Time!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Took a nice, easy drive up Signal Hill. It does not take long and it is a free site. If Table Mountain is closed, make sure you come here. I would do both if possible. The HOHO bus does not go here during the daytime. We had great views of the city bowl, V&A, inside the stadium, Sea Point, and of course Table Mountain. If you don't have a long lens, which you would need taking pictures from Table Mountain, this is a great place to be. Walking around the top of Signal Hill affords you many interesting angles for picture taking. There is a small parking lot and rest rooms. If you're lucky, maybe the local para-sailors will snag a customer while you are there, and you can watch a tandem jump. Next time, we will try a night visit.
