Jamestown Cruise

Jamestown, cruise to St. Helena | MSC Cruises

On the path of the colonials

Jamestown, a stopover on your MSC Grand Voyages cruise, looks like a small English country village with its characteristic atmosphere. If it weren’t for the fact that it is in the middle of the ocean and it is set in a splendid valley formed by volcanic rock.
A line of coloured houses flank the sides of the Grand Parade and Main Street, the town’s two main roads. During your excursion on land, you will find attractive stores for shopping and bars and eateries where you can spend a pleasant couple of hours. Then we advise you to go up to the Ladder Hill plateau from where you can admire the splendid view of the town , the valley and the bay. There are two ways to reach the plateau, either by road, or by walking up the 699 steps of Jacob's Ladder .
Built in 1829, it leads up the180 meters that separate Jamestown from Half Tree Hollow. Once you get to the top, don’t forget to ask for the certificate of your ascent that will be given to you by the local museum . In alternative, explore the town with a cruise along The Run, the canal, paved in 1857, which presumably retraces the course
