Easy stroll around historical Leiden passing good cafes, churches and lovely little streets. You pass the meeting house where the pilgrim fathers set off from on their journey that eventually ended in America!

We walked across Leiden after taking the train from Harlem. It had beautiful shops with bargain prices. We shopped for jackets and accesories
