Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Why not beat the crowds and begin planning your trip to next year’s legendary Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, just a short distance from our doorstep?



Join more than 220,000 people in witnessing Edinburgh’s grandest musical display, as over a thousand Highland dancers, musicians, and soldiers perform on the castle’s iconic esplanade in a moving tribute to the monarchy, military, and Scottish culture. Since the event’s origins in 1949, many international performers and customs have been introduced, allowing the Tattoo take on a fresh and engaging new twist.

Concluding with a moving tribute from a lone piper on the castle’s ramparts, gather with loved ones and reflect on those who have come before us and those who lost their lives in conflict. Shortly after this poignant moment, the crowd will sing a rousing chorus of Auld Lang Syne, accompanied by an exhilarating military flyby, ending the night on a joyous high.
