The Circus is a busy commercial area just a block from Port Zante and the cruise ships. Many shops, restaurants, bars etc.. Good place to start to see more of the real St Kitts. In the center of the Circus circle is a clock built...More

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.
