Get a taste of Southern charm

Jazz it up in New Orleans

The home of jazz music and supreme Southern hospitality, you’ll definitely feel at home in New Orleans.

The very best of New Orleans

 Live music in New Orleans, Austin & NashvilleNew Orleans is a buzzing hive of activity and in the centre of it all is the famous French Quarter - a grid of streets lined by eye-catching buildings, showing off the city’s melting pot of multicultural influences. Here you’ll find Bourbon Street, perfect for the ultimate night out – or if you’re after some more authentic Jazz vibes, head down to Frenchmen Street for live music and street parties.

The food in New Orleans is another huge part of its culture and heritage, with creole and Cajun delights just ready to tantalise your tastebuds. Make sure to try local specialties of po-boys, jambalaya and gumbo, and stop off at Café Du Monde for beignets – a French doughnut-style sweet treat.

Delve into the city’s dark history with voodoo stories and cemetery tours, or for something less spooky, take a steamboat dinner cruise along the Mississippi, checking out the New Orleans shoreline. The Garden District is filled with colourful mansions, and if you take a trip outside the city, you could be alligator-spotting in a Louisiana swamp!
