To drive through this town is like stepping into the past. The houses are really pretty. We walked to the "Gentleman's Swimming Hole." It's worth the walk.

It took about 20 min to walk around & see the few homes. The picture that is shown of the cute little church is the best thing there. We drove from Nashville, about a 2 1/2 hr. drive, to see the fall colors and it was too early for the peak colors. Don’t waste your time.

Rugby is really lovely, particularly in the fall and spring. Take the tour, it's worth it. We stayed in Percy Cottage. Don't expect a luxury accommodation! This area really attempts to stay true to the late-1800s vibe with a few upgrades (i.e. central HVAC, wifi, electricity, etc.).

We were staying in Huntsville so drove over to Rugby at someone's suggestion. What a quaint little village - like stepping into a Charles Dickens's Christmas scene. But we didn't have time to visit any of the shops & the Visitors Center wasn't open yet on a Sunday. The Harrow Road Cafe must have had a recent FIRE so was not open -- caved in roof which is too bad. Worth the drive to see this little gem out in the country.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Victorian Rugby and want to come back and lodge there, and participate in special events. Sue was an excellent tour guide after we watched the movie. Found a couple of items to purchase in the gift shop. Sue made us contact with a private homeowner for a tour related to family history research. We learned a lot.
