We visited Pedro St James Sunday 27 November. This was a superb place to visit. Ample car parking. We had a dedicated guide for the first part of the tour. A local and he really knew his stuff. A very good multi media history of the place followed before we visited the remainder of the site under our own steam.... More

This house (sometimes called Pedro Castle) is historic in terms of the Eden family and also the law makers who met here. The house is well restored with interesting furniture and artefacts. There is also a very good guide ( Stacey) who is descended from the Edens and who introduced the cinema presentation, together with the resident moggie called Ginger.... More

Would recommend the tour of Pedro St. James rather than a do-it-yourself. Lovely grounds, interesting history. Enter and exit thru gift shop, prices were surprizingly good.

Driving back to George Town from the North Bay we saw this sign to Pedro St James. We arrived just before 4 pm and told the last tour of the day was leaving. It turned out to be a private tour as we were the only people on it. It starts in the " movie theater" with a story of... More

Nice grounds high up off the beaten path. However I do not declare this a must see attraction. Definitely a well kept historical landmark. But hard to spend a lengthy amount of time at Pedro as a "historical site". I prefer attending Pedro for weddings, events and private parties. I give it 5 stars for events.

This was an awesome historical attraction of life in the late 18th century in Grand Cayman. Even my 4 year old grandson thought this place was cool. Located about 15 minutes east from the Georgetown cruise ship docks. Highly recommend even if you are not a history buff.

You can not leave Cayman without seeing the Pedro St. James Castle and historical site. It was a worthwhile experience; mahogany floors and furnishings to see life as it was through centuries... and the stamp museum is a collection of royalty of the times...can not miss this

I'm not a history buff by any means but I was interested in getting a sense of the island. With that said- I walked into this tour expecting a boring lecture and quick dry run through. I was so very very wrong. This is, by far, the most entertaining, lively, and FUN place we stopped at. Even my husband, who... More
