Basseterre St. Kitts. The capital Basseterre may be French by name, but St Kitts is part of the Caribbean’s earliest British colony. The town’s Georgian centrepiece named the Circus is modelled on London’s own Piccadilly. This scenic island is simply stunning when viewed from the Fortress of Brimstone Hill, where you’ll see a panorama of volcanic slopes, verdant sugar cane plantations and neighbouring islands.
