Owner description: This guided walking tour around Rugby School includes the School Museum, The Close, Chapel and other points of historical interest. Our museum houses many fascinating artifacts, including the first written rules of Rugby Football and examples of early balls and caps. See 'The Close' where the game began, The Old Quad where Tom Brown played, and walk in the footsteps of Lewis Carroll. There are many examples of William Butterfield's stunning architecture. Drop in tours run most Saturdays at 2pm. Groups at other times by arrangement.

Very interesting to hear about the history and visit the buildings. It is amazing to see some of the classes that remained the same for such a long time.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

Small but full of information regarding the history of Rugby Union/League. Rugby is a historic town and well worth a visit although parts of the shopping area are showing signs of Britains economic downturn
