Royal Edinburgh Tattoo, Cruise & Rail

Here's a great way to experience Edinburgh's world famous Military Tattoo, which gives you bags of value!

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo showcases the musical talent of the British Army, who are joined by international military and cultural acts. Pipes, drums and kilts galore, with Edinburgh Castle as a backdrop, this is a sell-out spectacle every year.

The 2019 performance, titled “Kaleidoscope”, is inspired by the optical invention of Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster. This is sure to be a thrilling evening whether it's your first or fifteenth visit.

Travelling to Scotland has never been more relaxing than aboard Cruise & Maritime's Marco Polo. Conveniently setting sail from London Tilbury, this is a traditional, and unmistakably British, cruise ship experience. Its small 800 passenger capacity ensures an intimate experience, and we expect you'll quickly fall for its welcoming ambience and old-world charm.

Our suggested itinerary below combines fantastic value for money with an easy and comfortable round trip from London to Edinburgh. With a centrally located hotel, you'll have plenty of time to explore the Scottish capital, and you won't have to contend with congested roads or the hassle of airports.
