What can you Tell me About Rugby?
The town is an old one that was mentioned in the Domesday Book but remained a sleepy town until the coming of the railways when it became a hub on the rail network. From there it grew wealthy on the industries that were attracted to the transport links. Hand in hand with industry grew the reputation of Rugby School which, at nearly 500 years old, is one of the oldest and most respected schools in the country.

The town’s art gallery and museum is surprisingly good with exhibits dating back to Roman times and a good modern art collection too. The town’s pride is the James Gilbert Rugby Football Museum where the history of the sport is carefully documented and illustrated. Whilst the school is not open to the public, it’s possible to see its incredible Victorian architecture from the road that travels around the perimeter.
