DATA: 03 - 25 August 2018
PLACE: Edinburgh, Scotland.

There are about 100 millions (!!) people who follow this event, from all over the world. Edinburgh Military Tattoo, in fact, is a global event, broadcast on TV in over 40 countries of the world, with the BBC in the forefront.

Great international artists come from all over the globe to perform in this fantastic military parade, which entertains an ever larger audience. Event that takes place in the Scottish capital, in conjunction with the famous Edinburgh Festival.

Among extraordinary performances of Scottish bagpipes, dancers, and international artists, the show is guaranteed. Music. Entertainment. Wonderful fireworks and gunfire. And, of course, a truly unique and suggestive location: the huge square in front of the Edinburgh Castle.

Each year, the event focuses on a specific theme. All this makes every edition of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo unique and unmissable.



The best way to get to the Scottish capital is by plane. The international airport, is well connected with direct flights, with the main European destinations. From the airport, you can reach the center by public transport.

The Castle, home to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, is located in the city center, about a 10 minute walk from the Waverley train station.


The shows are held from Tuesday to Friday, only at 21: 00. Only on Saturday, however, there are two daily shows, at 19: 30 and at 22: 30.

At the end of each show, there are fireworks. Every Saturday, at the end of the 22 parade: 30, there will be a firework display of greater duration.
The shows, from the 13 to the 17 August, will be filmed by the BBC cameras.


To attend the event, you will have to book your unique place, in one of the sectors of the stands. Prices start at a minimum of £ 25.00 (left side sector) to a maximum of £ 340.00, for the super-expensive Royal Gallery.
We recommend the 5 and 12 sectors. Excellent visibility, without spending a fortune.

Special packages are also available that can include, beyond the entrance, also culinary dishes, whiskey tastings, and more.

Obviously, the availability of the coupons is rather limited, and it is better to move in advance.

Tickets can be purchased online, on the official website, from this link.
