Rugby is a local government district with
boroughstatus in eastern Warwickshire, England.
The borough comprises the town of Rugby where the council has its headquarters, and the rural areas surrounding the town.
The borough has a population of just over 91,000. Of these, over 60,000 live in the town of Rugby, with the remainder living in the rural areas surrounding the town.
The borough stretches from
Coventryto the west, to the borders with Northamptonshireand Leicestershireto the east. It borders the Warwickshire districts of Warwick to the south-west, Stratford to the south, and Nuneaton and Bedworthto the north-west.
The present borough was created on
1 April 1974by the Local Government Act 1972. It was created by a merger of the municipal boroughof Rugby (which covered the town of Rugby) and the Rugby Rural District.
The town of Rugby had gained the status of an
