Signal Hill and the Noon Gun, Cape Town Overview

Signal hill is just a couple of minutes away from the city centre. Climb up to the zenith and experience the glorious views of the entire capital with its stunning blue Atlantic Ocean, and table bay.

The summit of the hill which is around three hundred and sixty metres high, offers a great opportunity for hikers and trekkers. In addition to this, the popular Signal Hill is also known for its great historical significance since the times when signal message flags were flown from here to communicate any important message to the arriving ships. The Hill forms the main body of the Lion Head's peak and offers an intriguing drive at sunset. Living up to its name, this spot is particularly famous for the noon day gun, which is fired everyday, sharp at 12 noon, except Sunday.
