Located on the south coast of Devon, the city of Exeter is an historic mid-sized cathedral city with a good blend of arts, education, retail and history. The central area of the city is fairly small, so it is easy to get around on foot. However, buses within the city are available and are operated by Stagecoach Devon, who also operate buses to most regional destinations. Other regional routes are operated by FirstBus, and by small independent operators. Cycle paths of varying quality run through the city with the most scenic route running along the canal towpath.
To enable people with limited mobility to enjoy the city, Exeter Community Transport Association provides manual and powered wheelchairs and scooters (called Shopmobility) for use by anyone suffering from short or long-term mobility impairment to access to the city centre and shopping facilities, events and meetings with friends and company.
Located just outside the castle, Northernhay Gardens is the oldest public open space in England, being originally laid out in 1612 as a pleasure walk for Exeter residents. There are many statues in the gardens, including the war memorial by John Angel, The Deer Stalker by E. B. Stephens, and the Volunteer Memorial from 1895, which commemorates the formation of the 1st Rifle Volunteers in 1852.
