Home to the game of Rugby, where the sport began in 1823, Rugby School, where the game originated, is still used for matches to this day and was the subject of the well-known Thomas Hughes novel 'Tom Brown's School Days'. The school is also famous for its headmaster, Dr. Thomas Arnold who, during the 19th century, changed the character of education and is largely responsible for the pre-eminence of the British public schools.
Enthusiasts from all over the world visit to see the statue of William Webb Ellis, credited with the invention of the game of Rugby Football, and read the famous words on the commemoration plaque at Rugby School Close. There is also a museum dedicated to the game of rugby football.
Close by are the towns of Warwick, with its beautifully preserved castle and Leamington Spa with its fine Regency buildings and its Pump Rooms. Also close by are the towns of Lutterworth, Daventry, Kenilworth, Northampton and Southam.
