Edinburgh has been voted the best city in the UK by a top travel magazine and we believe it is a perfect staycation destination – a city break combined with a visit to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
2020 will be remembered as a challenging year that has forced many of us to change the ways we go about our lives. It has also changed the way we travel and spend our holidays. Even though we may not be able to travel to our favourite places now we can start planning for the long term and have something to look forward to in the summer 2021. Scotland ranks as one of the most popular destinations for domestic holidays for UK travellers. This trend is thought to continue well into 2021. Most Scottish residents already spend their domestic holidays in Scotland but a boom in staycations in Scotland is expected throughout 2021 as international travel may not have enough time to recover fully.
Edinburgh is great for a short city break, as well as a perfect starting point for a longer Scotland itinerary. You will be taken back in time with a walk in Edinburgh’s Old Town, exploring hidden closes and cobbled alleyways. The city also boasts many gardens, parks, walking paths, and several viewpoints that offer stunning views of the city – such as Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill to name just a few. Finally, Edinburgh is also a world leading festival city and the home of world-class events and performances. In 2020 the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo would have marked its 70th anniversary – although we were all sad the event could not take place this year, the organizers have staged a special ‘socially distanced’ performance to mark what would have been the 2020 finale – the video can be found here https://www.edintattoo.co.uk/news/presenting-the-2020-tattoo-finale
Accommodation & Ticket Packages for 2021
We are delighted to see the Tattoo is now back on schedule for next year – it will take place from 6th until 28th August 2021. As part of our packages, we offer a minimum of 2 nights accommodation in the city centre and official tickets as standard. The packages can be tailored to the type and length of your holiday and can include a range of attractions, such as the Scotch Whisky Experience, Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Yacht Britannia and many more. Are you looking to explore Scotland a little more but are short on time? No problem, we can include a suitable day (or half day) tour, offered by our trusted partners, that will cover the most popular points of interest. If you have a little extra time and prefer to explore at your own pace – we will create a bespoke self-drive itinerary that can be linked with your Edinburgh stay and a visit to the Edinburgh Tattoo.
Our standard Tattoo packages can now be booked online here.
Your package can be booked for as little as £75 per person and as part of our covid-19 policy, we will refund all monies due if the event is fully cancelled.
