Located in the county of Warwickshire between Coventry and Northampton, the town of Rugby is best known as the place where the much-loved sport of the same name was invented.
Legend has it that William Webb Ellis, a student at Rugby School in the mid-19th century, popularised picking up and running with the ball in a game of football, thus giving birth to what has become known as Rugby football.
Today the town, which is close to the River Avon, is home to a museum on both the school and sport for which it has become so renowned. The Rugby school museum is focused on the history and heritage of the famous school itself whereas the Rugby Football museum is dedicated entirely to the history of the sport. Located in the town centre, it features extensive memorabilia and to this day traditional Rugby balls are made at the site.
From Overslade to Bilton to Hillmorton, Floom’s Rugby flower delivery applies to the entirety of this historic town.
