The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

From its early days, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has been an international favourite. Performers from over 48 countries have taken part in the Tattoo, with around 30 per cent of the 220,000 audience each year are from overseas.


Each year's Tattoo is very much a 'global gathering' - showcasing the talents of musicians and performers from every corner of the globe. In addition to this, the Tattoo has been televised in more than 40 countries. An annual television audience of 100 million watches the coverage worldwide.


The international flavour of the Tattoo has been deliberately developed as a key element in its capacity to entertain a huge, cosmopolitan audience. The Tattoo's unique ability to bring together thousands of people for this annual celebration of music and entertainment continues and the public's appetite for pomp and ceremony shows no sign of diminishing.



Important information

Please take careful note of the advice regarding access given by the Tattoo Office:


Castlehill, the old-cobbled approach to the Castle Esplanade, is a short walk of some 80 metres, though on a steep incline, and consequently, may prove difficult for some. In addition, there is on average, a further 60 metres followed by a five or so steps to be negotiated, to reach the front rows of all the spectator stands in the arena where, generally, the seating is quite steeply tiered.


Please advise us on booking of any mobility needs.

Where tourist services are provided orally this will be done in English.

The size of the tour will not exceed 61 and in the majority of cases will be less than this.

The minimum number of persons required for the holiday to take place will be notified to you at least 20 days before the commencement date.
