The Berkeley Memorial is a historic green structure presiding over Basseterre’s main center in the middle of the Circus. It features a fountain and a clock with four different faces, each of them positioned in the direction of the four streets leading to the Circus. The memorial is in honor of Thomas Berkeley, a president of the General Council in the 1880s.
You can visit the Berkeley Memorial as part of a walking tour through Basseterre, taking in the National Museum, the courthouse and the town’s churches. Visiting the memorial can also be combined with a sightseeing trip to Brimstone Hill Fortress and a visit to the beach. To really appreciate the landscape, history, and culture of St Kitts, join a full- or half-day island panoramic tour.
Insider’s Tip: Though the climate in St Kitts is tropical, you might want to note that Basseterre's rainy season runs from May to November when selecting a walking tour of the city.
The Berkeley Memorial is hard to miss if you’re in Basseterre. It’s located in the center of the Circus (named after London’s Piccadilly Circus).
