The Rugby Rural District was a former rural district in Warwickshire, England. The district covered the rural areas surrounding the town of Rugby, where the district council was based, but did not include Rugby itself which was administered separately.

The district was created in 1894. In 1932 its boundaries were significantly altered. The district was expanded to include the whole of the abolished Monks Kirby Rural District, parts of the abolished Foleshill Rural District and parts of the abolished Nuneaton Rural District. It also briefly included Bulkington, but in 1938 this merged with Bedworth. At the same time it lost some territory as Rugby's town boundaries were expanded.

On 1 April 1974 the district was abolished and merged with the Rugby municipal borough (which covered the town of Rugby) to form the present Borough of Rugby.
