Beautiful views from the top. We met the artist, Ishmael, and heard his story of letters he wrote to Bothe during the apartheid years. Then we had time to watch the loading of the cannon for the noon gun. Thanks DC Tours

Had a great experience at Signal Hill the day was clear and you could see for miles over beautiful Cape Town and while standing doing the admiring and taking photos the lunch time Gun went off what a noise but so pleased we were there to hear it. On the way down took photos of a beautiful tree out in flower reminding me of New Zealands Pohutakawa which is always out at Christmas in the North Island

Friday evening, nice wine, a blanket....jsut the perfect time to enjoy a wonderful sundet.
OK, the Signal Hill becomes more and more popular to ALL tourist. Thus it's getting crowded. You need to like buses full of tourists.

i have not climbed the rock for a while (reviews only go back so far) it is a lovely climb with chains to assist the last part. When you reach the top you are rewarded with breathtaking views. I suggest to walk in a group for safety.

I walk up Signal hill from time to time. The effort of the walk is totally rewarded by the view at the top. I'd recommend this to any visitor to the city. If you don't enjoy walking, you can always take a car or bus up.

Do pack a picnic - there's lots of space at the top to enjoy a meal while checking out the panoramic view over the ocean, Green Point Stadium, Sea Point Promenade and the new park.

Also look out for the paragliders who take off from signal hill and land on the Sea Point promenade. Join in if you have the stomach for it. It's an amazing ride. A bit expensive for locals, but if you're a tourist it might not hurt your pocket too much.
