Holidays in Louisville

Whilst being something of a Mecca for horse enthusiasts (they descend upon Churchill Downs every summer for the Kentucky Derby), there's a dynamism and energy unique to Kentucky’s biggest city; beyond its equestrian appeal. Marvel at the architecture of the Old Town, before sampling the city’s arts scene with a stroll through Market Street. Clamber up to the hill at Iroquois Park for awe-inspiring views of the city and enjoy stunning waterside panoramas along the sun-kissed Ohio River.
