Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2023, from 04 to 26 August. Best events

Edinburgh Military Tattoo

WHERE: Edinburgh, Scotland
WHEN: from 04 to 26 August 2023

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 each edition of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo unique and unmissable. After the suspension of recent years due to a pandemic, the event made a comeback last year.

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 take place from Monday to Friday, only at 21:00. Only on Saturday, however, there are two daily shows, the 18:15 and the 21:30. There are no shows on Sunday

An extraordinary fireworks display with lights and fireworks awaits you at the end of each show. Every Saturday, at the end of the 21:30 parade, there will be a longer fireworks display.
The shows on August 18th and 19th will be filmed by BBC cameras.


To attend the event, you will need to book your unique seat, in one of the sectors of the stands. Prices range from as low as £35.00 (left side sector) to as high as £600 for the super-expensive Royal Gallery Dining Experience and £680 for The Gatehouse.

We recommend sectors 5 and 12. Excellent visibility, without spending a fortune.

Special packages are also available that may include, in addition to the entrance, also culinary courses, whiskey tastings, and more.

Obviously, the availability of coupons is rather limited, and it is better to move rather in advance. Tickets are on sale as early as October 2022, and can be purchased online, on the official website.
