Peerages

Would you like to become a Duke, Duchess, Lord, Lady or Leige?

Hay Castle is entitled to bestow peerages in the tradition of our very own King of Hay, Richard Booth. Richard first started the Hay Peerage when he declared Hay-on-Wye an independent kingdom as a publicity stunt back in 1977.

The titles are not "real" in any legal sense, so please don't try using them on your passport or driving licence.

You will receive a certificate with the King's seal. A title costs £40 which includes P&P.

Please email info@haycastletrust.org to order your peerage.
