Have memories to last a lifetime at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Visiting Edinburgh in August for the Military Tattoo? Add memories to last a lifetime by staying at Fraser Suites Edinburgh.

The Royal Military Tattoo is one of the biggest events on earth and takes place throughout the month of August as part of the wider Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A number of Military tattoos are performed by the likes of the British Armed Forces, international military bands and the Commonwealth on the promenade at Edinburgh Castle.

The 2016 event is set to be one of the largest yet as the tattoo will pay tribute to the Queen as part of her year long 90th birthday celebrations. The sounds from the military bands from Britain, New Zealand, Norway and Jordan will complete an unforgettable event for spectators and performers.

Situated near to the famous Royal Mile, Fraser Suites Edinburgh is located in the ideal position for tourists, a place where you can absorb all the action, while enjoying relaxation without all the hustle and bustle of the festival season.

Get the day off to the ideal start with breakfast in Frasers own Broadsheet Bistro.  Serving continental breakfast until from 7.00am, energise yourself the right way for the day ahead.

Fancy a tipple or two before the event? Sample some of the best Scottish whiskey around in the Whiski Rooms on North Bath Street. If you want a proper Scottish day out then this place should be part of your itinerary.  Walk north away from our serviced apartments  for one minute along St Giles Street where you will meet North Bank Street and the venue will be on your left.

Reaching Edinburgh Castle from here is relatively simple.  Walk west on North Bank Street towards the Royal Mile. Turn left on Milne Crescent then at the end of the road, look right and walk down the Royal Mile and you will see the glory of the castle in front of you.

If you would like to explore more of the city after your evening at the tattoo, many bars and clubs are open near to Edinburgh Castle for you to party the night away.
