Trains to Rugby

Visit the town of Rugby, the birthplace of this quintessentially British sport. Whether or not you’re a sports fanatic, it is worth taking a tour of Rugby School and visit the spot where, in 1823 during a game of football, pupil William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and started to run. You can also visit the Webb Ellis Rugby Football Museum which houses a treasure trove of rugby memorabilia and the former home of legendary manufacturer, James Gilbert, who made the first rugby ball.

Rugby town centre has much more to offer than just its sporting heritage. Take a trip to Rugby Art Galley & Museum and explore the town’s Roman past or stroll through the award-winning Caldecott Park. Indulge in a little shopping on Rugby’s high street, where you’ll find both high street brands and boutique stores.
