Rugby Town Guided Tours

Our award Winning Rugby Town Guides take residents and visitors on a journey of discovery through the town centre, revealing fascinating facts. The guides are all experts in the history and heritage of the town and love to share their unique knowledge with visitors from around the world.

The free town tours start at Rugby Visitor Centre and visit the Webb Ellis Football Museum, the Webb Ellis Statue and The Queen’s Gates at Rugby School’s The Close. Other stops include Regent Street, High Street, the Rupert Brooke Statue, Sir Frank Whittle’s Monument and St. Andrew’s Church.

Tours run regularly in spring and summer. For tours during autumn and winter, please contact the Visitor Centre on (01788) 533217 or e-mail visitor.centre@rugby.gov.uk.
