Create an itinerary including Jacob's Ladder
One of the seven wonders of St. Helena, Jacob's Ladder connects the valley grounds to a fort on top of the hill. With a total of 699 steps, the steep stairway clambers up a rocky slope, with dizzying views of the sea and island. Once a mere rope ladder, today the repaired stairs each measure approximately 30 cm (11 inches) high and deep. Lighting at night makes it possible to climb at any time. Make Jacob's Ladder a part of your Jamestown vacation plans using our Jamestown attractions website.

  • Very steep but a must do when on St Helena. Make sure you attend the museum and have a look around along with submitting your time.

  • Take your time and dont forget to get your certificate when you have been up and down. Do take water and your camera.

  • Must-do walk. Unique experience with a fun view and St. Helena's most populous town at the top. Going down is definitely harder on the knees than going up. Try to do it when it's not a million degrees out.
  • Very nice place so friendly
