The historic clock (the last one to survive) sits in the middle of of the new tourists orientated shops and the local's places.
You should really explore the stores and some of the little shops beyond this clock up and around the streets. You will...More
This tiny circus was once the site of slave auctions and is dominated by the clock tower which was constructed in Glasgow. It is busy with taxis, ambling tourists and hens pecking at the sidewalks but is redolent of times past. worth a visit.
The clock and drinking fountain in the centre named the Berkeley Memorial was designed and built by a company in Glasgow, Scotland.
Three others were built from the cast with slightly modified decoration. One was installed in Glasgow and two in Leeds, England. The sole...More
One of many British marks left on the island. A roundabout in the center of Basseterre with the Berkley Monument in the middle. Definitely reminiscent of British occupation. We drove through it on our way out town. The area looks a little rundown, but was...More

Basseterre is not specially a very picturesque and tourist attraction therefore there are a fee place of mention and this one is one of them. Colonial clock is a pretty square with a few interesting shops and restaurants

Eating out is a personal thing. There are a lot of different restaurants in and around Basseterre, St. Kitts, which do breakfasts and lunches. My wife and I had a wonderful inexpensive lunch at the Ballahoo Restaurant in the Circus at Basseterre. Recently visited this restaurant on the island of St. Kitts. Entrance at the side, go upstairs to restaurant. Open air, but with a roof. Sat at front on the balcony overlooking the Circus, which is a square with a clock tower in the middle, which acts as a roundabout for the traffic. Watching the traffic was an interesting pastime in itself. We were served by a lovely, friendly Jamaican waitress named Anseta. She was most charming, friendly and helpful. She explained the menu, which was extensive. We decided on the fresh Lobster, but not the Thermidor, as on the menu, but freshly grilled with a salad. There was a beautiful tasty sauce/dip with the Lobster, but is a secret of the chef. We had an excellent bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to accompany the meal. A lovely lunch, served by a lovely waitress, watching the world drive by in the sunshine. Very good. Enjoy your trip.
