I always say Hello to Pocohontas when I visit Gravesend. She is always there and always alone and doing her best to look out to sea (the River Thames). The church and churchyard are so interesting and both are deserving of more visitors. No wonder...More

Easy to find, very poignant to see. I recommend walking by to see the statue in front of the church, and gaze at the other gravestones lining the field.

Gravesend is a soulless redneck slum, lacking character or charm and a tacky monument changes nothing. It's a world of £1 shops and bookies. Nothing can prepare you for the disappointment of being there, nor the joy of leaving. The statue and church are nice...More

Such interesting history a stones throw from where I live. This lady was real not fiction. The children's film tells the story. But Gravesend has the Princess and a beautiful statue in the church.

I was very emotional when I faced this statue. If you are familiar with the Native Americans you will know her story and being where she has been it's been very emotional

Located the famous statue of Indian Princess Pocahontas in the churchyard of St George's Church - lovely peaceful setting in the well kept flowerbeds of the church - looks nothing like the Disney version though :-)

This is an interesting statue but needs some renovation. More I think needs to be made of it. Most people use the church as a cut through into the town from a carpark so unless you were searching for the statue you could easily miss...More
