With a style and tradition befitting one of Memphis' grandest, most legendary hotels, The Peabody Memphis offers a magnificent bridge between the "Blues City's" celebrated past and cosmopolitan present. Take a trip back in time with a 1-hour tour of the "South's Grand Hotel" with the Peabody Duckmaster.
Peabody history dates back to 1869 when the original Peabody Hotel opened on the corner of Main & Monroe and immediately became the social and business hub of Memphis. In 1925 a newer, grander Peabody was built at its present location continuing the legacy of the "South's Grand Hotel."
It was 1933 when ducks were originally placed in the hotel's lobby fountain, setting in motion an 80-year tradition that continues today with the March of the Peabody Ducks. The Peabody name has become synonymous with the 5 North American mallard ducks that are now the living symbol of the Peabody brand.
Legendary, charming, elegant, and grand are just a few words that describe what sets Peabody Hotels apart from other hotel brands. Not only will you hear stories from nearly 150 years of history, you'll learn behind-the-scenes details about the charmed life of the world-famous Peabody Ducks.
Admission is $10 per person and reservations can be made by calling (901) 529-4108.
