  • The VC Bird Monument is situated on what was originally the Market square at the junctions of (the commencement) Marker Street, New Street and The All Saints Road. The much larger than life fenced monument is essentially a concrete statue from the waste up of Antigua and Barbuda's Former Prime Minister and late National Hero. The VC Bird Monument is a point of interest in the St. John's City and definitely worth a visit.
  • Nice statue... located in the midst of town
  • Very friendly atmosphere.
  • Not the prettiest statue but well maintained and respected. Nice tribute to Antigua's first prime minister overall. The market building is just behind and good for a visit too.
  • It was peaceful..warm and pleasant
