Enjoy a three night stay in our hand-picked four star hotel located in Edinburgh together with top price stand tickets for the event. These short breaks are designed so you can, with our expert local knowledge, enjoy the very best of the capital in the buzzing festival month of August – perhaps also including a show from the International Festival or world famous Festival Fringe. Of course, you can link this experience into a longer tailor-made tour of Scotland, too – just advise us at time of enquiry.
The 2021 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will take place over the period 6th to 28th August with performances on Monday to Friday at 9.00pm and on Saturday at 7.30pm and 10.30pm. There is no performance on Sunday. The 2021 seating plan has been considered to allow social distancing measures, with a reduced overall capacity and tickets available in sections of up to four seats together.
More details on the artistic theme for the return of this unique spectacular will be available shortly.
