Well it is already answered at 2 or 3 places here, but I had to search a lot to find the shortcut and even go to Google instead. – Esamo Jan 10 '14 at 4:59

Switch to the next tab to the right > Ctrl + Alt + PageDown .

For the left < tab change the last key to PageUp.

See Custom keyboard shortcuts in gedit.

Also more gedit shortcuts at[...].
