​Memphis Holidays​

Long live the King! The King of Rock 'n' Roll, that is. Elvis Presley's legendary mansion Graceland is right here in Memphis, and so massive is its popularity that it's the second most visited house in the States after the White House. Sun Studios, where Elvis recorded some of his classics, is also here - making Memphis holidays a no-brainer for rock 'n' rollers.

But Memphis' musical roots go even deeper, because it's also the home of blues and of soul. You can see the wooden shack 'Father of the Blues' W. C. Handy lived in preserved on Beale Street - and even better, you get to hear his legacy in action: Memphis' most famous of streets is packed wall-to-wall with bars and clubs, and  the intoxicating sound of live blues and rock pulsates from almost every building.

If soul is more your kind of groove, then there's plenty for you on Memphis holidays, too. Some of the sweetest soul singers around recorded at Stax Records, creating the Memphis Sound - and you can pay homage to stars like Otis Redding and Isaac Hayes at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. Get down to the Full Gospel Tabernacle church and you might even catch Grammy-award winning singer and ordained reverend Al Green leading his congregations in soulful song!

But Memphis isn't only about music. It's also about civil rights, since it was in this city that Martin Luther King was killed in 1967. The Civil Rights Museum records and commemorates that struggle, and makes for essential viewing.

As the barbeque capital of the USA, Memphis is also about food; plus it's about good shopping, great entertainment, and paddle steamer trips on the Mississippi River. It's a fascinating city that was close to Elvis' heart. We think it'll find a place close to yours too.

Graceland

Elvis GracelandGraceland, where Elvis lived for twenty years before his death in 1977, is preserved with its Seventies decor intact. The 'Jungle Room, complete with green shag-pile carpet and faux fur, is legendary. Tour the extensive mansion and estate, and see Elvis' record collection, his fleet of cars and planes, his awards, costumes, guitars - and grave.

Sun Studio

Visit this revered recording studio and step in the shoes of some stellar artists - Elvis, Johnny Cash and B. B. King for starters. This is where Elvis recorded his very first hit, 'That's All Right', in 1954, and set in motion a musical revolution. The tours are packed with fascinating stories and memorabilia, including Elvis' microphone.

National Civil Rights Museum

It's a crying shame that civil rights pioneer Martin Luther King didn't live to see America's first black president. Instead he was assassinated here in Memphis, on the balcony of his room at the Lorraine Motel, in 1968. The museum that now occupies the site charts the history of both the civil rights struggle and Dr. King's assassination. It's a uniquely moving experience.

Beale Street

Spending time on Beale Street is an absolute must on Memphis holidays. Hear the sound of the city in the street's string of live music clubs and bars, and grab a drink from a 'beer window' as you wander along. Visit legendary haunts like Rum Boogie Café and B.B. King’s Blues Club, or check out the many shops and restaurants instead.

BBQ

How do you like your ribs? 'Dry', rubbed in spices? Or 'wet', cloaked in barbeque sauce? Whatever you preference, you'll find the smokiest, tastiest pork imaginable at joints like Corky's and the Rendezvous...plus hundreds of others. Memphis is the pork barbeque capital of the world.
