Listen for the sonic boom of cannon fire atop Signal Hill, as you journey back to when British and French forces vied for strategic control over the harbour. 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.
