There are numerous car parks located close to the Ram Trail and other options too depending on your favoured mode of transport.
Located adjacent to the inner ring road and with easy access to the main trunk roads and the M1, the Derby Ram Trail is easily reached by car. You will find excellent parking facilities in the city including multi-storeys, surface and on-street parking. For further information regarding car parks located in the St Peters Quarter and Cathedral Quarter BID areas click here.
Derby has direct rail services to a large number of destinations across the UK including London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle and Cardiff. The city’s train station is a perfect starting point for visiting the Derby Ram Trail as the eye catching ‘Railway Communities’ Ram is located just outside and allows you to RAMble through to the Derbion Centre taking in some other Rams along the way.
Derby is served by an extensive public transport network covering the East Midlands and beyond. The city’s modern bus station is located on Morledge in St Peters Quarter and is lucky to have the gorgeous ‘Memories Fade but Warmth Remains’ Ram situated outside as a great find for your first trail discovery!
The Ram Trail map can be collected from the following locations.
If you spot the St Peters Quarter or Cathedral Quarter Rangers, they will also be able to give you a copy.
The map can also be found on the free Derby Ram Trail App which can be downloaded to your smartphone from the App Store or Google Play. You can use the app to track down all 30 rams and add them to your trophy cabinet. Hidden with each ram are ART eFACT cards, where you can discover fascinating objects from Derby Museums’ collection.
Depending on your pace, the Ram Trail can take between 1.5-3 hours to complete if walking.
There is no time limit on how long you can spend viewing the trail and you can also indulge in lunch and a spot of shopping along the way!
The St Peters Quarter and Cathedral Quarter BID areas are brimming with award winning pubs, cafes and restaurants for you to enjoy some refreshments along the way.
