Rugby is a market town located in the county of Warwickshire, in the West Midlands region of England, United Kingdom. With a population of around 70,000 people, it is the second-largest town in the county after Nuneaton.
Rugby is perhaps best known for being the birthplace of the sport of rugby football, with the Rugby Football Union being formed in the town in 1871. As a result, the sport is deeply ingrained in the town's culture, and there are several local clubs and facilities dedicated to it.
In addition to its sporting heritage, Rugby has a rich history dating back to Roman times, with several historical buildings and landmarks to explore, including the 14th-century Rugby School and the Grade I listed St Andrew's Church. The town also has a bustling town centre with a mix of high street shops, independent boutiques, and local markets.
Rugby has excellent transport links, with easy access to major motorways such as the M1, M6 and M45, and a direct train link to London that takes just over an hour. The town is also situated near several other notable destinations in Warwickshire, such as the historic city of Coventry, the charming market town of Warwick, and the stunning countryside of the Cotswolds.
