For tickets contact The Tattoo Office, 33 - 34 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1QB, telephone 0131 225 1188, email email@example.com or see the website below.
Planning ahead: seats are in the open and performances are not cancelled due to 'inclement weather' (come rain or shine, the tattoo must go on!). It is wise to have cold and wet weather gear with you. Wrap up warm for evening performances as the seats can be quite exposed.
The late performance on a Saturday is followed by a fireworks display.
