The Royal Military Tattoo is Scotland’s biggest, bestselling outdoor spectacle. We don’t want anyone to miss out. The venue itself is situated in the most popular part of the city by the Castle, high above the skyline. For this reason, it may present access difficulties for some. Mainly, the elderly, people with disabilities or of limited mobility, those with heart or respiratory problems and vertigo sufferers. We’ve planned as best we can to help as many guests as possible enjoy this fantastic occasion.
If you are in any doubt whatsoever about the venue accessibility, we recommend that you contact the Tattoo Office to discuss your particular requirements.
Wheelchair seating is designated within the arena along the front row sections 1-4 and 12-17 as well as at the top of Section 10 facing Edinburgh Castle and allows for an attendant’s seat at no cost.
Ticket holders in wheelchairs and their attendants can be seated in designated areas ahead of the main crowd.
While we do not provide wheelchairs for guests, every effort is made to assist ticket holders into their seats when we have the resources to do so.
Ambulant disabled access
A limited number of seats are available for those with restricted mobility in the front row of Sections 12-17. There are five steps to negotiate from ground level to these seats.
As the number of seats in the wheelchair and ambulant disabled areas are limited it may not be possible to sit your whole party together, as such it may be necessary to separate your party. We will however do our best to allocate seating for accompanying relatives or friends as close as possible.
Disabled vehicle passes
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, we are unable to advise at this time if we can offer disabled vehicle access. Details will be provided in due course.
