Flight time from London
Start in Downtown, spend the night on Honky Tonk Highway, dine in Germantown and shop along 12 South. If you’ve come to spot stars, look down at the paving stones on Music City Walk of Fame park, where Kings of Leon were one of the most recent inductees to earn an inscription on a slab of sidewalk.
The Nissan Stadium, across the river, is where the country’s biggest fourth of July fireworks take place and the performers who are now superstars come back to play. Road names pay homage to the greats (Chet Baker street, anyone)? But keep your eyes peeled: the people walking the streets, guitars in hand, might one day be even more famous. You never know what – or who – you’ll discover next in Nashville.
From summer 2019, you’ll be able to fly straight to the Music City every day of the week, up from its current five weekly flights. Clearly the buzz around Nashville shows no signs of abating, making it the perfect time to head across the pond for some Christmas cheer Nashville-style, or to ring in the new year with Keith Urban, fireworks and the midnight Music Note Drop.

Southern food means a lot of chicken and shrimp, a good barbecue and a hearty breakfast
Formed in Nashville, Kings of Leon share their excitement as British Airways announce a new route to Music City. From May 2018, British Airways will start flying direct between London Heathrow and Nashville.
