Edinburgh Tattoo Coach Trips 2013
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
With Edinburgh Castle as a backcloth, the Edinburgh Tattoo, or the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo to giv it its proper name, is one of the worlds most spectacular evenings of music, pomp and pageantary. This year it celebrates the oustanding scenery of Scotland in the Year of Natural Scotland.
When is the Edinburgh Tattoo in 2013
The Edinburgh Tatto is taking place in 2013 from the 2nd to the 24th of August. This overlaps both the Edinburgh International Festival which runs from the 9th of August to the 1st of September and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (running from the 2nd to 26th August).
Why go by coach to the Edinburgh Tattoo?
Whilst it is obviously possible to stay in Edinburgh to go to the Edinburgh Tattoo, this has disadvantages. Because of the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe, which take place at the same time, Edinburgh Hotels and other accommodation are much in demand, and hence expensive. Using the coach, it is possible to stay outside Edinburgh and be driven to and from the Tattoo. Also of course, the coach provides a good value way of being transported to and from where you live.
Your choice of Coach Trips to the Edinburgh Festival
We have both three and four day coach trips. To break the journey, some visit various attractions on the way up. These include, depending on the tour, York, Scarborough and Gretna Green. When in Scotland, it is not just the Edinburgh Tattoo, some, again depending on the tour visit the Royal Yach t Britannia or, particularly aptly, considering the theme of the Tatto is the Year of Natural Scotland, visit the Trossachs and the Firth of Forth. Of course, there is plenty to see and do in Edinburgh, particularly as the other Festivals are taking place.
Please note that thevarious coach trips don't run on every date from every location.
At the Edinburgh Tattoo
Generally, as the hotels are outside Edinburgh, you will attend the early show, starting at 9 pm or 7:30 on a Saturday. The price of the various coach trips include the cheapest seat prices. It is possible, if the seats are available, to upgrade. (This may be compulsory if all the cheapest seats have sold out.)
