Royal Ascot Hat HireIn September 2009, we joined forces with the Royal Ascot Tennis Club, for the Hiring of Mens Top Hats, Ladies Designer Hats, and Car Parking, during the Royal Ascot Races. This initiative helps raise funds for the Community Tennis Club, while providing a need that had long been unmet to Race Goers - A Hat Hire in Ascot, only a short walk from the Racecourse entrances. Arriving by train? We are on route on walk up Station Hill from the Station. Driving - You can even park with us too, making it even more convenient - Park your Car, Pick Up Hat, then walk over road to the Races. Coach customers can access via High Street. Limos welcome to drive up to us. Helicopters potentially a problem!
This is a totally unique service for Race Goers during Royal Ascot, with the pick up and drop of at the Royal Ascot Tennis Club, such a short walk from the Entrances.
This service allows you to Hire your Hat for only day required, and save the two/three day charges companies away from Ascot may charge if you cannot collect, wear and return your hat all in the same day of Royal Ascot.
International customers flying in from all corners of the globe have found this service invaluable and make up over half our customer list each year. No longer the need to carry bulky hat boxes on the plane, or allow extra days ahead of the races to find a Hat, our site allows you to view rotating views of each hat, with sizes advised, and tips for selecting the right hat. These customers can now fly without hats, and simply collect and return their booked hat in Ascot on the day.

Chris Evans Colomn for Mail on Sunday and Mail Online - May 2012. "Guess what's just opened in Ascot? Our first hat shop. For crying out loud, how come no one's thought to do this before? More behatted heads than anywhere else in the world descend upon Ascot for five days every year and ladies of a certain disposition will always be prone to an additional purchase. It's so blindingly obvious, it's almost annoying. It just proves that a lot of the time you can make hard work out of looking for the next best thing when it might be right under your nose all the time. Helmet shop in Silverstone, anyone? Or if you really want to make a killing, a pasty and tea shop combined - and as close to my front door as possible."
"Natalie Pinkham, the Sky TV Presenter and BFF of Prince Harry, wears our In-House Handmade Gold Pheasant Veiled Headpiece for Glorious Goodwood with Zara Phillips, and features in Marie Claire online coverage of the Fabulous Hats of Glorious Goodwood Races 2013, and The Telegraph Newpaper." - August 2013.

She Knows, Australia, Jan 2013. If you're ready to dive into the deep end of OTT fascinators, this is the piece for you.

"To turn up in one of the main Ascot picnic car parks on Ladies Day to collect a £300+ hat is always a thrill. The hat quality and design, Fiona's advice on compatibility with the entire outfit, and the other ladies in my party agree that this service is a gem. Will use at Goodwood, weddings and alike.

Hire of Hats and Headpieces for Any Other Event than Royal AscotAll the Hats and Headpieces are also of course available to hire year round for any other event outside of the Ascot Races, and can be either collected, or available on Mail Order. If the event in question is during the same week as Royal Ascot then sadly of course there will be high probability that the hat is booked. Any other week of the year though, we would be able to make available to you a few days before the event, and just ask that you return in the few days after.
To view the hats and headpieces online, then simply browse the Ascot Hats and Headpieces, as the collection is the same collection, but then upon booking be sure to use the Mail Order booking form instead of the Ascot Booking form.
Hats booked online will be dispatched to you by Special Delivery for delivery two days before your required event. So if your event is a Saturday, we will dispatch Wednesday, for you to receive on Thursday.
For mail order bookings, upon booking you will be required to pay the hire, and deposit costs quoted on your chosen hats description, plus postage charged at £9.50 for Special Delivery. We ask that you also return by Special Delivery within 3 working days of your hired date. Working days of course, so allowing for weekends and Bank Holidays. Upon return of the hat or headpiece, the deposit cost will be refunded to you.
If you are local to Ascot and would like to come and try the hats on, colour check, check sizes and suitability, then you are welcome to do so by appointment only at 13 Prince Andrew Way, Ascot, SL5 8NQ. Also collecting and returning does save you the postage costs.
If you would like to make an appointment to try hats on please call 07958 950303 to make an appointment, or email to: email@example.com
