“Delightful and Lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I love the architecture of all the buildings surrounding the square, the people sitting on seats resting in the hot sun; the shops and banks and the hustle and bustle when it is busy. The central tower and clock is charming, giving the circus its prominence.

“Action Packed during J'ouvert 2012 Dec 26th”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We visited the circus during Jouvert on 26th Derc 2012. This is the best place to view the bands as they march through the streets and dance and party with their painted bodies.

“See it if you go to Basseterre but don't go for it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We stumbled across this whilst walking around Basseterre. It was still pretty underwhelming. I can't imagine the impression it would give if you travelled in to town specifically to see it!

“If your in town...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

....it's worth a look to go by the clock but don't make a special trip to see it. If you need a taxi or just want to people watch, this is the place to be.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Not really anything to go out of your way for. It is a round about with a clock in the center. That is all.
