“Good photo op but beyond that?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

It's a clock in the middle of a busy road basically. What's the big deal? Good photo op I guess but beyond that? As Tegan F suggested in his review, "Don't go out of your way to see this." Agreed.

“Don't go out of your way to see this”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

If you happen to pass through Basseterre this is worth taking a look at but on a whole Basseterre offers nothing but tourist souvenir shops and a place to be hassled to go on tour trips.

Kitsch looking victorian memorial in the centre of the "circus". Well worth making the effort to go take a look

“Definitely worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

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, the tall Royal Palm trees and the elegant colonial buildings says "St. Kitts" and "Basseterre" more clearly probably than any other image.

“Basseterre's Typical Icon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

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.
