A big, bright city with a pure country heart

Let this friendly city take you on a whistle-stop tour of its top sights, every honky-tonk you pass will have its own mini music scene. But ‘Music City’ is far more than a music museum (though it has plenty of those). 

East Nashville is now a hipster quarter – flick through vinyls with one hand, holding a hot dog in the other. There’s massive portions of barbecue food for the hungry – and you just have to try the hot chicken. Hunting down the Parthenon in Centennial Park or taking a tipsy whiskey tour of Jack Daniel’s distillery, on Nashville holidays there are plenty of places to strut your stuff. With direct flights to Nashville, what are you waiting for? If you book flights and hotels together you’ll save with our package holidays.

Carefully selected Nashville hotels

Find the right hotel for your holiday in Nashville

Our carefully selected rooms around the popular West End, Downtown and Opryland areas suit all budgets and travellers. The three-star Doubletree By Hilton Nashville Downtown is a short stumble back from the Wildhorse saloon and the Downtown nightlife or try the BentoLiving Chestnut Hill if you'd prefer a self-catering apartment. The Inn at Opryland, close to the airport, is  the ideal base for a trip to a show at the original Grand Ole Opry. For family-friendly luxury choose the Gaylord Opryland Resort, with a mile of indoor gardens and waterfalls in the glass atriums and a whole village of on-site restaurants and shopping. The Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown is a popular four-star, just one block from the State Capitol with sweeping city views. Or if you're travelling in a group, crash at the luxurious W Nashville and congregate at its vibrant rooftop bar to watch the sun set over the city.

Nashville holiday FAQs

Stay in the centre of the action in Downton Nashville, which straddles the Cumberland river. Here is the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hatch Show Print next door. There’s also an important Ryman Auditorium, a venue for the Grand Ole Opry, the weekly country music show. There are plenty of hotels in this area. Once you’ve danced through Downtown, discover the rest of Nashville. Hopeful musicians still make pilgrimages to Music Row. There’s a wax museum of country music stars opening in 2017 and RCA Studio B, where Elvis recorded much of his music.

Between Music Row and Downtown you have the Gulch. Once an industrial heartland, visit the brewery taprooms in the area, one of the largest is the Yazoo Brewing Company. There are plenty of hotels in the Opryland area, just above the airport. The original Grand Ole Opry is here, set in an attractive building with a barn-themed stage. There is a new out of town shopping district, Opry Mills and Gaylord Opryland Resort nearby. Lying West of Downtown, in the centre of West End, you’ll find pretty Centennial Park. And in East Nashville and around 12 South, you’ll find vinyl shops, tattoo parlours and people sporting excellent street style.

  1. This city is brimming with musical delights. If you’re not a lover of country music, you’re bound to change your tune after Nashville’s top sights.
  2. The Country Music Hall of Fame is massive and pretty comprehensive. Feel free to take it at pace, but stop to admire the architecture from outside – the windows are configured to look like piano keys and the whole design is roughly based on a bass clef. Nearby is the walk of fame park, where you can walk over Hollywood-style stars on the sidewalk until you spot Jack White and Kings of Leon. As part of your ticket you’ll also have access to a far more intimate site: RCA Studio B.
  3. It may not look like much, but RCA Studio B is where Elvis recorded over 200 of his songs, and Dolly Parton wrote ‘Jolene’ and ‘I will always love you’. In the corner are a string of Christmas lights, hung up to help him get in the festive mood for a July recording of some Christmas songs. And there is the ancient piano he would use to warm up and record. Perhaps you’ll get your own flash of inspiration.
  4. You can’t miss the Parthenon, situated in Centennial Park. Make this a relaxed walk before lunch, pop in to see the largest indoor statue in the western hemisphere (a big, gold Athena). You can walk all around the park and build up a fine appetite.
  5. Be sure to book ahead for a table in the tiny Bluebird Café. This unassuming venue is an intimate performance space for songwriters, where everyone from Taylor Swift to Faith Hill has sung on their way to stardom. Jam into a chair in the packed-out listening room, where the atmosphere will sizzle. Doors close late, and then it’s back to the hotel, humming all the way home.
  6. The Ryman Auditorium, birthplace of bluegrass, is worth a tour to hear about the legends that performed here. Originally a tabernacle, and still featuring pew seating, go backstage to the dressing rooms and stand on the stage where Helen Keller, Charlie Chaplin, W.C. Fields all stood before, and where the Grand Ole Opry once hosted its show – Hank Williams received six encores when he played the venue. The new show is at Opryland, just out of town.
  7. Navigate the Honky-Tonks of Nashville on the aptly-named Honky Tonk Highway. There’s an exhausting amount of live music every single night, often multiple bands on multiple floors, and you can shuffle along until you find a crowd and sound you like. Look out for Brazilbilly – as the name suggests, it’s country with a Latino edge, or the giant, lit-up boot that symbolises Robert’s Western World. Pull up a stool.
  8. Time to branch out from country and bluegrass. Visit the Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum and GRAMMY Gallery. Great for the starstruck, the gallery introduces the GRAMMYs – the music awards (U2 have 22, conductor Georg Solti has 31). There are plenty of interactive exhibitions, film props and instruments. You’ll want to take your time, whether you idolise the piano where Elton John composed, worship at the altar of Roy Orbison’s prescription sunglasses or long for a go on Santana’s Woodstock drum set.
  9. The beautiful grounds of the Belle Meade Plantation beckon. A winery, former thoroughbred stables, as well as a historic house. It makes a pleasant afternoon of sipping and strolling, as you learn horse racing and wine tasting from guides who take old fashioned hospitality seriously. They’re even in period dress. This is where Seabiscuit and Secretariat’s great grandsire was raised: trace back the bloodlines of two of the greatest horses in American history to this green pasture.
  10. Nashville has a great selection of unusual shops. Yes, there are cowboy boots a plenty, but head to 12 South, a street that’s fast becoming the hippest in town. Reese Witherspoon, a Nashville native, opened Draper James here, purveyor of upmarket dresses in gingham and cotton. Imogene and Willie does a good line of denim, hit White’s Mercantile for tasteful homeware, owned by local singer Holly Williams and a couple of fun vintage stores.
  11. Head out to Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage. The seventh president of the United States has a driveway that‘s shaped just like a guitar. When you get inside, you’ll discover his fascinating story – fighting the British at thirteen, orphaned at fourteen, raised to rank of general and finally president. He fought for democracy and earned the moniker ‘people’s president’. Visit his garden tomb after a tour of the house.
