Edinburgh Tattoo Package at Mercure Edinburgh Quayside

This tour operates on: Every Day

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a world famous pageant of military marching and music. In its original format it was a celebration of British martial prowess and our links with the Empire. Whilst it still retains a strong sense of imperial connection and the presence of redcoats and bearskins recalls the British Army's many campaigns, it has broadened its scope to celebrate skill and military traditions around the world and it enjoys both the serious and the theatrical nature of army life. It does not forget the courage and steadfastness of the soldier and many a visitor will feel a shiver down their spines as the haunting lament The Flowers of the Forest calls out across the auditorium from the castle battlements played by the lone piper and remembering all those who went off to war, but never returned.

We have a number of packages in different hotels around town with tickets available for any night of the tattoo. We have listed different packages according to the accommodation. 

Please note that Tattoo tickets are limited in their availability and once we have sold out of our tickets, we cannot get any more for that night - so get booking!

About the Edinburgh Mercure Quayside

The Mercure Edinburgh Quayside is a new hotel in a newly developed area of Edinburgh called the Quayside which used to be the home to the enormoous Fountainbridge brewery. Today, the canal side location is home to offices, hotels and apartments and in the developer's dreams is the new fashionable artist's quarter of Edinburgh. Sadly it is not. The good news is that it a ten minute walk across a few streets to the Castle and the Tattoo arena. The area is safe and is handy for just about anywhere in the city. As you would expect from a 4 star hotel - all the amenities and good rooms.
