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 loved learning about Cayman History. Beautifully restored building with fascinating past. Easy parking. Restaurant adjacent. Informative movie to watch before the tour.

  • Must see destination. Inexpensive tour with good condensed version of history of this place and Island. The theater (short movie is played) is an amazing experience. One of a kind of theater experience. House is very nice to visit and take wonderful pictures to lock in memories. First destination to see when arrive to Island to set a nice mood. Anju, tour guide was friendly and great asset to the place. Oh, bathrooms are clean and also a restaurant on this property.
  • 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!
