A market town on the River Avon, Rugby is located in Warwickshire and has a population of over 70,000. As well as often being credited as the birthplace of Rugby football, the town is also home to the famous Rugby School.
Culture in Rugby
Rugby School Museum will be of keen interest to any rugby aficionados out there, as it tells the story of the beginnings of Rugby Union as we know it today. Rugby Theatre, owned by an amateur society which puts on ten live shows each year to a 313-seat audience, is the place to head for modern plays, mainstream musicals and classic dramas. Rugby Art Gallery & Museum, on the other hand, always makes for a fun and interesting day out for people of all ages.
