Create an itinerary including Pedro St. James National Historic Site
Visit the oldest building in the Cayman Islands, Pedro St. James National Historic Site. Built in 1780, the house belonged to plantation owner William Eden, and underwent restoration in 1996 after decades of abandonment. The old manor served as the birthplace of democracy in the Caymans, where notable island citizens met and decided to vote for their representatives. Step back in time as you roam the interior, carefully restored with period furniture, and imagine what life was like for the wealthy Englishman that built the mansion in the 18th century. Discover how to plan a Bodden Town trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • We had no idea that this was such a great site to visit. Wish we had allotted more time to see the 25 minute video. Lots of history about Grand Cayman, great buildings to see, kind staff and a gift....  more

  • We had an incredible time visiting Pedro St James! We were not sure what to expect, and due to some construction we couldn’t go into the great hall, however we really enjoyed the movie and walking around the grounds. The guides were super helpful and flexible, even though we showed up during their team meeting, they were still on top of helping us. I definitely will come back when I can go inside the great hall!
  • A Beautiful Location Full of History Easy to find, well sign posted, well organized, historically important site, highly informative about Caymanian culture and history, ample parking, guided tours or self-tours available. Friendly, helpful, & knowledgeable staff and guides. Lovely restaurant on site with ocean views & indoor and outdoor seating. Pedro St James is an important Caymanian historical site that combines a beautiful natural location with island, and world, history. A short informative film introduces the tour. There is information about the history and culture of Cayman at all the locations around the site.
