The Rugby Central Shopping Centre is a two storey shopping precinct in the town centre of Rugby, Warwickshire, England, managed by EFM Facilities Ltd. The precinct includes clothes stores, game shops, thrift stores and food outlets. There is a large multi-storey car park at the rear and the towns main bus stops are at the front of the centre.

The precinct, originally known as "Rugby Shopping Centre", changed its name to "Clock Towers Shopping Centre" after the clock tower in the town centre, and adapted its name as a theme; the shopping centre features clocks and other time-related decorations – in 1995, the precinct installed two ornamental clocks, both loosely based on the traditional grandfather clock design. The first, named Chiming Clock, was designed to chime and play music on the hour and half-hour as a tortoise and hare raced around the dials, reenacting Aesop's fable.[1]

It took on its current name in October 2017.
