The town’s landmarks include Gravesend Town Pier, Royal Terrace Pier and Gravesend Clock Tower and perhaps surprisingly the town is the place that Pocahontas died, aged just 22 in 1617, a fact that is commemorated with a statue. Gravesend has one of the oldest markets in the country dating from 1268. And New Tavern Fort, built during the 1780s, is a great place to visit, with artillery on display and a network of underground tunnels to explore. Gravesend is also home to the Guru Nanak Temple – the largest Sikh Temple in Europe.
