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

I get to say hi to Pocahontas on most days but 2017 will see a climax of events in March in celebration of links to Virginia USA with 400 years on from Pocahontas’s death. A lovely statue set in the gardens of St Georges church.

The Statue is not really in a nice area it was in the winter so the park area looked very bare and run down - apart from the statue not much else to see to be honest.

Located by a church this is a must see in Gravesend. The story is an important one and I recommend visiting.

It is a very good statue, however the Disney film is far more exciting. Whilst at the statue, if excitement is what you are looking for pop in St Georges church.

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.

The interesting thing, of course, is to find the link between Gravesend and Pocahontas; the statue itself is ordinary, but the history interesting and the link surprising. Well worth a glance, and a reminder of the story.
