The staircase inside is narrow but going inside the tower is something to do at least once in your lifetime! There is a little gift shop inside as well.

Worth the walk up to visit. Go along the trails on the right side of the hill (not the walkway) to get better views and visit more locations. Views of harbor and ocean amazing. Can see miles away.

Go inside the tower and take the stairs up to the top and check out the beautiful views of the ocean.

See review of Signal Hill for a description of the tower and surrounding area. The telegraph station is on the second floor where messages were received from Europe and transmitted to the rest of North America.

The landmark that you see from the harbor and from downtown and just about everywhere. It's the old tower on the top of Signal Hill.

A must do for the views alone. Be aware of how windy it can be. It was the strongest I had experienced 12 days in NL! Be sure to visit the 2nd and 3rd floors to read about Marconi and the first trans-Atlantic wireless communication!

TripAdvisor will likely be your best resource for things to do and places to stay. There is a tourist info office in St. John's if u are looking to speak to someone directly 1-844-570-2009
