Tennessee Tourism

Tennessee is the “Soundtrack of America”. No matter the reason for your visit; whether searching for some relaxation, outdoor adventure, great music or a history lesson - we have it all right here.

Music is synonymous with Tennessee. Whether it’s the rock ‘n’ roll infused sounds from Memphis or the country twang of Nashville, Tennessee is a melting pot of sound and culture. From Graceland, to the Grand OIe Opry via the Country Music Hall of Fame, there is plenty to salivate musical palates.

For the explorer, East Tennessee is home to the Great Smoky Mountains, where adventurers can trek over gorgeous mountain cliffs, wonder at dazzling waterfalls, and bask in glorious colours of the scenery around them.

Don’t forget to experience a tour of Tennessee’s greatest export – Jack Daniel’s whiskey. The distillery is located in Lynchburg, and a short hop from Gatlinburg; the gateway to the Smoky Mountains. Nearby is scenic Pigeon Forge, home of Dolly Parton’s theme park, Dollywood.

Not forgetting the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel, the nations tallest and deepest underground waterfall – Ruby Falls, the Tennessee Aquarium and Beale Street. There is so much on offer in Tennessee, you may need to come back more than once to experience it all.

Fly direct to Nashville, Tennessee with British Airways and experience the excitement and sounds of Tennessee sooner than you think!
