Exeter’s Belmont Park is a large and sporty outdoor space perfect for a family day out, whether it’s a jog, a kick-about with your mates, or simply a long walk. Standing out amongst the play areas and stretches of green is England’s first garden created especially for the blind, the Sensory Garden. It was built in 1939 and contains a range of flowers and plants of stimulating scent, colour, and texture. To enhance the sensory experience, the plants are all kept at eye level and within arm’s reach.
Belmont Park is a short seven-minute walk from our Exeter hotel.
