See Scotland and Edinburgh at its most exciting time: The Edinburgh Festival!

The Edinburgh Festival is the largest Arts Festival in the World and the main event is THE ROYAL EDINBURGH MILITARY TATTOO, a truly spectacular pageant staged at night in the grounds of EDINBURGH CASTLE. It features a mass display of pipes and drums performed by the Scottish Regiments, plus colourful displays from other countries invited to contribute each year.

Included are excellent seats for Saturday night's TATTOO. Choose the early performance from 7.30 – 9.30 pm, or the late performance from 10.30 pm – 12.30 am. The late performance includes a colourful FIREWORKS DISPLAY. Experiencing this extravaganza is truly unforgettable, and many of our expat clients have said it was the high spot of their entire time in the U.K.

The Internationally acclaimed EDINBURGH FESTIVAL AND FESTIVAL FRINGE is now in its 69th season and attracts artists and theatrical groups from every corner of the globe. Every taste is catered for, including comedy, drama, musicals, dance, children's entertainment and much more; the list is endless! Indeed, many famous celebrities began their careers performing at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Our package includes a choice of hotels for 2 nights and 3 days, or 3 nights and 4 days (must include a Saturday) for each of the four weekends of the Festival. You will have plenty of free time to experience the wonderful Festival entertainment and soak up the atmosphere and fun of what the EDINBURGH FESTIVAL and FRINGE is all about.
