Within easy walking distance of Port Zanté. Not much to see once you're there, but the clock tower is quaint.

Having made several trips to London, I was familiar with what to expect from something called ‘circus’. The intricate clock tower was interesting and historic. This is in the middle of the historic part of town.

I can't say I was impressed by this "attraction". It's a nice enough memorial but I wouldn't go out of your way to see it.

To my wife and me, this was an extremely average looking traffic circle with the Berkley Memorial in the center. We didn't see anything that captured our interest while we walked through it as part of our self-guided walking tour of Basseterre after our scenic...More

This place was supposedly going to be a copy of Piccadilly Circus in London... We passed it on our tour and later came back to see it again on our way back

This is in the heart of historic Basseterre. Several roads meet at this junction. It is the Berkeley Memorial Clock. It pays homage to the former president of St. Kitts’ Legislative Assembly, Thomas Berkeley. As a local, I visit this spot all the time. This...More

Supposedly based on Piccadilly Circus is London, this looks nothing like Piccadilly. It's just an average island traffic circle with a statue/clock in the middle. We passed it on our driving tour. I'm glad we didn't stop.

The place everyone visit in the heart of town. Everything is in walking distance of the circus and its located on one of the busiest streets in Basseterre.

Don't miss the clock when touring Basseterre. The Circus is the main square of the town and worth a look

Hang out in the center of the town to get a real feel for the culture and people...restaurants and shops are plentiful.
