Nashville & Memphis Holidays

Land of country music and Delta blues – Nashville & Memphis holidays are old southern soul and surprising new delights

The legendary music cities of Nashville and Memphis serve up all the Southern flavours you need for an adventure into the rhythms of rock ’n roll, country and blues.

Jingling with welcoming vibes, honky tonk clubs and iconic theatres, the Tennessee capital of Nashville is a journey into the soul of the south. Famed for its country music, culinary scene and creativity, you can dive into the history of music, drink beer and whisky in gritty bars and dine your way around top chef Southern food restaurants. Grab tickets to an all-star performance at the legendary Grand Ole Opry or seek out up and coming performers at the bijou Bluebird Cafe where Taylor Swift got her start. Fancy shopping for cowboy boots to go along with those country music roots? Broadway is where you’ll find them. Prefer to see one of Jimi Hendrix’ guitars or Elvis Presley’s studio booth? Head to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Set along the banks of the Mississippi River, Memphis is a heady mix of barbecue, blues and rock ‘n roll with a strong Civil Rights Movement history. You’ll find the kitsch and novel on Beale Street and in the private home of Elvis Presley at Graceland. Visit Sun Studio, where B.B. King and Johnny Cash recorded albums, and the Rock ‘n Soul Museum for insight into the city’s musical heyday. Memphis is both cool and cultural; you can step back in time at the Victorian Village, taste proper southern grill at flavoursome barbecue joints and cruise along the Mississippi River on a historic paddle wheeler.
