Nice photo ops with many vendors and shops in the area. Souvenirs and art are plentiful in the area. The memorial has history, but its not fancy. Take a look if you can.

This one-of-a-kind memorial is right in the center of Basseterre and right in the center of "The Circus". You won't find another like it. I personally think it's a beautiful clock, although some people won't like it; you have to enjoy Victoriana. Actually, go there just to take some photos. An image of this square with the big green clock,... More

Berkeley Memorial is typical icon for Basseterre. It really demonstrates it's history and makes you feel like years ago... It is also centric point to walk around - and taxi point in case you search for one.

The tall Berkeley Memorial is a fine tribute to those name on it for their loyal service and ultimate sacrifice, standing high andproud and serene in a beautifully elevated position overlooking the harbour and shore of Basseterre.
