There is some impressive Victorian and Georgian architecture to see around the Berkley Memorial Clock Tower which is in the middle of a junction in Basseterre. Blink and you will miss this caribbean piccadily circus!

Not a lot to really 'see' here... but you will not miss this monument as it sits in the center of the main roundabout. A bit rundown, and should be given more care and attention.

This monument is the center of town, and was built in honor of Thomas Berkeley, a former president of the General Council in the 1880s. The monument had 4 different clock faces.

The Berkeley Memorial is the Big Ben of St Kitts, positioned in the centre of "the Circus" (named after Piccadilly Circus). Obviously, the Memorial looks nothing like Big Ben, any more than The Circus looks like Piccadilly Circus. It's humour - like having a bathtub in your back yard and saying "I'm going to go lay by the pool". It's... More

As part of our tour of St. Kitts we viewed this lovely old weathered clock (not keeping time), in the center of a roundabout in the heart of Basseterre. We dined at Ballahoo where we also had a great view of the clock and the traffic circle activity....and all our Canadian banks! Part of the Basseterre experience down at Port... More

If you're in Bassterre anyway you can't help but bump into the memorial. I won't give the significance away, so you'll still have a reason to visit yourself. Very close to all the Canadian banks so if you're doing any banking it's only steps away. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it though.

This place is bustling all hours of the day and night. Locals will blare music from different sound systems, and there are restaurants all over the place to visit. I was on the island for 8 days, so my perspective may be different than a visitor on a cruise ship. If you want to visit the area, but not be... More

Visited while Basseterre was packed with enthusiastic shoppers on the one VAT free day of the year. Lots of loud music blasting.

We were surprised to walk out of the tourist area and see this monument. It looked just like a place you would see in Europe.
