Take a peek at the highlights of living in Rugby. The town itself has a fantastic farmers market every month, boutique stores and lovely restaurants and cafes, in addition to great road and railway networks; London Euston is only 52 minutes by train. It is also home to the famous Rugby school where the sport was founded by William Webb Ellis.
The pretty village of Dunchurch has not only got lovely scenery but an interesting history. Who would have guessed it was where the Gunpowder plotters waited before taking action? Besides from this, it has everything you need in easy access, as well as excellent schools and a prep school that feeds into the renowned Rugby school.
The attractive village of Thurlaston is a no- through village with around 150 dwellings and is situated just a mile from Dunchurch where there is a good range of day-to-day facilities and just five miles from the centre of Rugby. Draycote Water can be accessed from a path in the village and Whitefields Golf Course forms the other boundary to the village making this an ideal rural retreat. There are more extensive shopping facilities in Rugby, Southam, Daventry, Coventry and Leamington Spa and there is a high-speed train service from Rugby to Euston in under 50 minutes. There is also easy access to the extensive road networks making commuting less onerous Private education is available at Rugby School, Bilton Grange as well as in Leamington, Bloxham, Princethorpe and Warwick with excellent Grammar schools available in Rugby.
Rugby has grown to become Warwickshire’s second largest market town, boasting a variety of designer and high street shops, restaurants and pubs. Famed for its public school, the birth of rugby football and the Frank Whittle jet engine, Rugby is also home to the green open spaces of Caldecott Park, Coombe Abbey Country Park, Brownsover Hall and Draycote Water. With a range of excellent schools, Rugby is ideally placed for a well-rounded education. Equally so for transport too, thanks to its convenient motorway links and speedy rail services to Birmingham, Leicester and London Euston in around 50 minutes. Situated on the northern edge of Rugby, this location combines the relaxation of a semi-rural retreat by the River Avon, with plenty of amenities close by including a new retail park at hand and the Warwickshire countryside beyond. Positioned in the heart of England the county is famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare. There are no cities in Warwickshire since both Coventry and Birmingham were incorporated into the West Midlands County in 1974 and are now metropolitan authorities in themselves. Warwickshire hosts several key towns including Leamington Spa Warwick, Stratford upon Avon, Kenilworth, Henley In Arden and Rugby to name a few. The northern tip of the county is only three miles from the Derbyshire border. An average-sized English county covering an area of almost 2,000 km2, it runs some 60 miles north to south. Equivalently it extends as far north as Shrewsbury in Shropshire and as far south as Banbury in north Oxfordshire.
The town comprises a historic market centre surrounded by much modern housing and light industrial development. On the edge of the town centre is the popular Daventry Country Park and reservoir, just east of the A425. Daventry itself is a great location for commuting being only a short drive from major road networks and only fifteen minutes from the closest railway station.
