Signal Hill in St John's, Canada

The capital city of Newfoundland and Labrador has a rich, colourful history. St. John’s has oodles of old world charm, interesting architecture, historic landmarks, beautiful countryside and a cultural scene as fresh as the Atlantic.

St. John’s first permanent settlers were the British in the mid-18th century, and North America’s oldest city has long been an exploration gateway to the Avalon Peninsula, Cape Spear and the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve.[ReadMoreMob] To this day, St. John's is much-loved by visitors who arrive for the chance to see indigenous wildlife such as puffins, whales and other natural wonders.

St. John’s jelly-bean-coloured houses line hilly streets, and the city is home to artists, musicians, and wonderful, cutting-edge eateries. The Downtown district typically offers the best food, pubs, entertainment and shopping, while Signal Hill, one of Canada's National Historic Sites, provides incredible views of the spectacular harbour and surrounding areas.
