We were in Charlestown on Christmas Day. The town was absolutely dead! Nothing open and hardly anybody about. We wandered the town, including the Memorial Square. We enjoy architecture and history, so like to check out the buildings of any new place we visit. But there really is not much to see in Charlestown.

Not alot to see, but the war memorial is to the people on Nevis who fell in the great war. Worth a visit, on a walk round Charles town. There are seats in the square so you can sit if you need . However unlike European squares there are no pavement cafes and tables and chairs.

This memorial is to the fallen from the Great War 14-18. There is also an old field machine gun sitting to one side - remarkably well preserved. The road sign on the square has noise crossed out - assumably to preserve a quiet environment - the reality was huge speakers and much load music - but this all added to... More

Nice square which is always busy with locals going about their business. Nice to sit and watch the world go by.

A small square in the center of the old town surrounded by the court and library buildings. The square itself has a colonial feel to it, it has a heavy chain fence, more decorative than functional. There are benches and large trees that provide shade. A memorial to the dead from the World Wars.

Pretty, well maintained center of the capital of Nevis. Very pretty decorated for the holiday season. On Friday nights it is very crowded and music fills the air. A fun stop in Charlestown.

We were lucky enough to be here when the Culturama festival was on & Memorial Square is the focal point for a lot of the events, such as Poets in the Square, steel bands, clown dancing etc. On other days it is just a good place to sit under the trees out of the sun and watch people going about...

if you love people watching and have nothing else to do...then sitting in the square and soaking up the environment is a good time filler.....although its surrounded by traffic and the accompanying exhaust smells etc....many locals find time to sit and cogitate or to meet here and to eat lunch or have a drink...its shady and has a few artifacts...

Memorial Square is worth seeing if you are in Charlestown anyway, perhaps because you just got off the ferry from St. Kitts. This town square is not a world-class attraction, but it is the center of Charlestown, which is the capital of Nevis, and a lot of the 18th and 19th century style and spirit of the town is still...

WWI memorial. Nothing to write home about! Adjacent to the local bus/taxi depot. The centre of town. General dealer type supermarket with Chinese restaurant on one side of tri-angle and another Chinese restaurant on the other side of the road. There was a bank with ATM, which I used to draw money, but later on found another ATM that didn't... More
