We provide affordable studios, build networks, and offer support, learning and facilities to inspire everyone to realise their creative potential. Plymouth must have a vibrant art and making culture that keeps creative jobs in the city, and we are here to help every maker in their journey. Making strengthens communities; it gives people confidence and a voice.
Have your voice heard through our unrivalled programme of events, masterclasses, tutorials, and exhibitions. RAMP is part of the Real Ideas Organisation, and you are welcome to participate in our activities, whatever your age and experience.
How to find us
You’ll find us in the world-famous Royal William Yard, a former navy victualling yard built where the River Tamar flows into Plymouth Sound.
Constructed between 1825 and 1831, the Royal William Yard is steeped in naval history and considered one of the most important groups of historic military buildings in Britain and the most extensive collection of Grade 1 Listed military buildings in Europe.
We’re in the Factory Cooperage, a group of buildings built to support the enormous demands on the supply of barrels for the store on board royal navy ships.

Royal William Yard,
Plymouth PL1 3RP.
Ocean Studios has an accessible entrance; however, some areas are uneven due to heritage restrictions. We have worked hard to create an accessible building. Ocean Studios has accessible toilet facilities and lift access to the upper floors. Blue badge parking is available throughout the Royal William Yard – please advise us of any additional needs so we can make your visit enjoyable and comfortable.
