Guided walking tours

Our very own Rugby Town Guides take residents and visitors on a journey of discovery through the town centre, revealing fascinating facts about the history of the borough.  Our 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 and St Andrew’s Church.

Tours leave the visitor centre at 11am on Saturdays every week between 6th April and November 2019. This is a drop-in session and there is no need to pre-book. Tours are also scheduled at 2pm on a Wednesday. However, these must be pre-booked by contacting the Visitor centre.

A dedicated sports heritage tour can also be arranged for those visitors who have a specific interest in the birth of the game in Rugby. 

If you are arriving in the town outwith these dates and times or if you would like to arrange a sports heritage tour, a bespoke tour may be arranged. Please contact the Visitor Centre on (01788) 533217 to discuss your requirements.
