History of Rugby
The town is most famous for being the birthplace of the Rugby football and is well known for the famed Rugby School, which is one of the oldest and most famous private schools in the country founded in the year 1567. Its main claim to fame is the Rugby game, first played by William Webb Ellis, a student of the school, who ignored the football rules and took the ball in his hands, running with it.

Settlements were seen here from the Iron Age, and in the 13th century it became a small marketing town. When the Oxford Canal linked Oxford to Coventry, via Rugby, the town became a major junction with the development of the Railway. The famed writer Charles Dickens has satirized Rugby in his short story called Mugby Junction. The town had an Afro-Carribean as well as Indian community, becoming a multi cultural town with even a Hindu temple in it. Today, you can see a lot of Victorian architecture, with many pubs in the town centre. The Rugby School offers the grandeur of the 19th century, combined with the relaxing calmness of the Oxford Canal.
