  • Visit a traditional pub

    At one time Rugby was renowned as the town in England with the most pubs within the square mile of the town centre.

  • Visit the birth place of Rugby Football

Rugby Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Recently Rugby has started a serious parking régime. The area now known as the "Independent Quarter", Regent Street and Albert Street, is crawling with traffic wardens (usually in pairs). They give no mercy.

Rugby Tourist Traps

    by redflame100 Written Oct 18, 2004

    We bought a three hour car park ticket and were back within less than an hour having exhausted the beauties of Rugby.

    Although car parking there is cheap you really do not need long unless you plan to shop, visit the rugby museums or walk round the place 3 or 4 times.

    It is beautiful but there is not much to see.
