Norwich is a city and county ton of Norfolk in the East Anglia region on England. The city lies on the River Wensum and in May 2012 it was designated England's first UNESCO City of Literature. Norwich has a rich history of art, literature and publishing which continues to the present day. Norwich had the first provincial library in England, opened in 1608, and the city newspaper, the Norwich Post, was the first provincial newspaper outside London in 1701. Today, Norwich accounts for 5% of the United Kingdom's independent publishing output.
Visitors to Norwich are attracted to its cathedral, its cobbled streets, the museums of old Norwich, Norwich Castle, Cow Tower, Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum, Dragon Hall and The Forum. In addition to its architecture and monuments Norwich is also in the UK's top 10 destinations for shopping. The city has a good blend of national chain retailers and independent shops. Norwich Market is also one of the largest outdoor markets in England.
Each year the Norfolk and Norwich Festival celebrates the arts, drawing many visitors into the city from all over eastern England. The Norwich Twenty Group, founded in 1944, presents exhibitions of its members to promote awareness of modern art. Norwich was home to the first arts festival in Britain in 1772.
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.
