About Pedro St. James National Historic Site, George Town
Pedro’s Castle stands for not only what an 18th century castle looked like, but the 1780s was also a time when the population of the Cayman Islands was a grand total of 400. Dubbed as the oldest stone structure of the Cayman Islands, the Castle was rebuilt after a massive fire destroyed it. There’s no refuting why the Castle is a historic site- the first elected parliament democracy presided over proceedings here and the Slavery Abolition Act was signed in this former court and jailhouse.
Don’t miss out on the multimedia presentations that happen on the hour that tells a riveting tale of the Pedro Castle.

Pedro St. James National Historic Site, George Town Reviews
Pedro St. James is one of the few historic sites to visit on the island. The restored building is a quick tour, but worth the effort. The visitor center is a nice place to hang out and the bar is really one of the best locations on the island; great view and Cayman Spirits rum. This is a short visit, but a brief history of the island is nice to acquire when visiting and this is the place to get that.
Shore excursion from Georgetown Cayman islands through Regent. First stop was a botanical garden. Very nice. Nearby visit was to Pedro St James. Very knowledgeable guide who is a decendant of the original owner. Nice presentation of the history of the house and land. Saw some birds including the local green parrots.
Wonderful historic site. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Be sure to enjoy the multimedia presentation before visiting the house. The history of Grand Cayman really comes alive. Makes you love this island that much more. Don't miss the rum tasting room. Extra 5 bucks and well worth it.
A must see in Grand Cayman. Loved learning about some of the history of the island and also about the oldest remaining standing structure. Rum tasting at the end was fun and a good way of selling souvenirs.
I'd say it's more of a 3-3.5 star, will give it a 4. It's a great location and neat to see. But there truly isn't much to see. It's a 3 story home with much neat history. But isn't worth the $12 entry fee, it's worth more like a $5.
