The statue is beautiful in calm and pleasant surroundings. It looks bronze and is sad and romantic. It is not contemporary with her death.

This is a tale of love and tragedy and everyone will be entranced The gardens are very nice too and it's just a short walk from the town centre Everyone will be interested in Princess Pocahontas and her story Make sure you visit the riverside too so you understand the story better

The nearby tourist information centre had lots of free information regarding the story of Pocahontas and overlooked the church and statue. The grounds and statue were kept in immaculate condition

Well worth a visit to this statue in St Georges churchyard. It is in a quiet location in from of the church and tells the story of an Indian princess who is laid to rest nearby.

This statue needs a lot more publicity than it gets. It is a great love story from years gone by, more signage needed to educate people about when why and how it got there, especially our friends from over the pond will be more than interested. My only regret is that a lot of the "students" are inclined to abuse... More

Had some time to kill on a lovely sunny afternoon in Gravesend before an appointment and didn't want to sit in a stuffy restaurant so bought a sandwich and sat on a bench by the Pocahontas statue. It sits in the grounds of a lovely old church ⛪. Very relaxing peaceful spot considering so close to the main thoroughfare of... More

I love this statue and the story behind it, I took my children when they were younger and now I take my grandchildren. It's regal and sad.
