See where Guglielmo Marconi received the world’s first transatlantic wireless signal. Watch as the Signal Hill Tattoo dazzle with military drills and drums. Explore iconic Cabot Tower, enjoy coastal hikes and take in soul-stirring views of St. John’s and the Atlantic Ocean.
Step back in time to 1862 and enlist in the Royal Newfoundland Companies on Signal Hill.
Thrill to cannon boom and musket fire as you witness soldiers in period uniforms demonstrate skills covering over a century of Newfoundland military service.
From the creator of the award-winning St. John’s Haunted Hike, listen to tales of looming ghosts, wayward pirates, buried treasure, tragic drownings, and the headless phantoms of Signal Hill.
