Pedro St. James , Pedro Castle Road, Savannah, Savannah KY1-1501, Cayman Islands
Travelers responsible for own transportation to the site
Make your way to the Pedro St. James National History Site, located outside of Savannah just 20 minutes from George Town. The site is open daily from 8:30am-4pm.

Once you arrive, you can opt to take a guided tour (departs every hour on the hour between 9am and 4pm) or do a self-guided tour on your own. 

Guided tours (duration: about 2 hours) begin with a screening of the 3D movie detailing the site's history, followed by a detailed look at the property accompanied by commentary from a guide. The self-guided tour allows you to wander at your leisure and takes about an hour. 

Regardless of how you explore you'll learn about the construction of 'Pedro Castle' more than two centuries ago and its iterations through the years, including turns as a jail, a restaurant, a courthouse, a cotton plantation, and the founding place of democracy in the Cayman Islands.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Pedro St. James National Historic Site
Self-guided tours can be completed in one hour. The walking tour allows you the freedom to explore all the grounds and enjoy seeing the 18th century Great House and its related artefacts. Absorb the beauty of panoramic ocean views, across seven landscaped acres, and the old stamp room and picture collections. Since its construction more than two centuries ago, Pedro St. James has been put to use in a variety of ways – as a cotton plantation, courthouse, jail, Government Assembly and even restaurant – before the Cayman Islands government finally purchased the property in 1996 and restored it to its 18th-century grandeur. Perhaps best known as the “birthplace of democracy in the Cayman Islands,” Pedro St. James was the venue for a meeting on December 5, 1831, where the decision was made to form the islands' first elected parliament. Later on May 3, 1835, the proclamation ending slavery in the British Empire was read from its steps. There is also a gift shop and restaurant on-site.
