Signal Hill

Signal Hill

The birthplace of texting! Well, sort of. This historic site celebrates the rich communications and military history of Signal Hill, the reception point of the first transatlantic wireless signal by Guglielmo Marconi in 1901, and the site of harbour defences for St. John's from the 18th century until WWII. Enjoy a performance of the 19th-century military drills by the Signal Hill Tattoo (in season), or take a hike from the summit along the coast.
