If you go down the main street in Port Zante and go through the museum at the end, it will take you to the main street / town. The Berkeley Memorial is about a block away from the Museum entrance.

When you get in to the town after passing the National Museum the first thing you will see is this big Memorial clock at The Circus. It's a bit to bad it is in a middle of a very busy street, it would have been nicer to have it in the park close-bye.

Most visitors to Basseterre, do not get beyond the cruise village that adjoins the cruise ship pier. However, if you go through the archway in the National Museum at the edge of the cruise village, you come to a much different world. It is not one targeted at tourists but rather where the people of the island live. Just from... More

This is a different memorial - large and so imposing and it's located in it's own space in a colourful square in the centre of the capital. A cultural area with which the well cared for memorial fits well. If you're about do have a look.

Not a lot to really 'see' here... but you will not miss this monument as it sits in the center of the main roundabout. A bit rundown, and should be given more care and attention.

This monument is the center of town, and was built in honor of Thomas Berkeley, a former president of the General Council in the 1880s. The monument had 4 different clock faces.
