As the church that the American Mayflower Pilgrims worshipped at, I was a little overwhelmed walking in. There is certainly a sense of majesty and amazing history in this building. The docent who spoke with me was very knowledgable and had great stories and anecdotes...More

Walking into the immense empty space is an overwhelming experience. A booklet as given on loan to help you find your way, but it can be bought afterwards. The church has a long history, well-preseved gravestones, interesting names and lots of beautifully written golden admonitions...More

Really enjoyed our visit as part of a walk around Leiden. We stayed an hour in this really large former church. There is a small restaurant there also. It is historically interesting as it has been there since 1120.

We enjoyed our visit to this beautiful church. It has a lot of history including being the place of worship for the Pilgrim Fathers. The entry cost of three euros is reasonable especially when you consider there is no other revenue stream for the building....More

You enter the church through the cafe. It cost 3 euro each to go inside which I don't like paying to go into a church but this is no longer and actual church and more a monument which needs money to be cared for. When...More
