Best things to do in Rugby – birthplace of rugby football

It was 1823 when William Webb Ellis stormed with a football in his hands through a crowd of his fellow students at the Rugby School. While many of them saw it as a fun pastime back then, few would have imagined that it would become a sport of worldwide recognition. Nowadays, after years of regulations this practice has evolved into a game with millions of supporters. If you are one of them, a visit to its traditional birthplace is a must. Below are just some of the best things that you and your escorts from http://www.eros.com/ can enjoy in this small English town.

The birthplace of the best contact sport

Rugby is a small town in Warwickshire with less than 100,000 inhabitants. Despite of its minor size and quiet atmosphere, this tiny community attracts thousands of visitors every year. Its fame is rightly attributed to the invention of rugby almost two centuries ago. Tourists who come here have the unique chance of walking on the same turf where the first hurdles took place in the 1800s. Many of them are accompanied by a London escort, the ideal guide to this important bit of British history.

Today, rugby is considered the best contact sport in the world. Whether you are just passing through the West Midlands, or you are there for a longer time, you should take your escorts to The Close at Rugby School. Together with these beautiful ladies from EROS you can admire the spectacular memorabilia displayed here.

Fun things to do in Rugby

Few people know that rugby is not only about hurdles and touchdowns. This small town is also the place where the first jet engine was invented in 1937. You can observe it in the local museum, together with the first holograms developed here in 1947. Visiting this place alone would be a waste of time. Make this trip a memorable experience by taking a London escort with you. These girls love to have fun and discover historical places.

Over the years, Rugby has incorporated many of the surrounding villages. Today, a short stroll through its streets can reveal amazing architectural traits of times long gone. Some of them are the St. Andrews Church, the Clock Towers and the Caldecott Park. All of these make for a sensational trip that you and your escorts are bound to remember for years to come.

Visit the Webb Ellis Museum

Rugby started when William Webb Ellis broke the rules of football one day, during recess. His courage and the subsequent popularity increase of this sport have earned him an imposing statue located near the museum that boasts his name. This is the no.1 tourist attraction in the town and every London escort that visits these places has her picture taken here.

The street that leads to the Webb Ellis Museum is adorned with 50 bronze plaques dedicated to the best rugby players ever. A fun game played by many visitors is to try and recognize as many of them as possible. Take this opportunity to play an engaging game with your escorts. This is the best way to tighten the bond between the two of you and build a stronger friendship.
