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

Hay Castle is entitled to bestow peerages in the tradition of our very own King of Hay, Richard Booth. Richard Booth first started the Hay Peerage when he declared Hay-on-Wye an independent state as a publicity stunt back in 1977, It was so popular that he has continued to confer titles of nobility to this day.

The titles are not “real” in any legal sense so please don’t try using them on your passport or driving licence. However, you can use them casually whenever you want.

You will receive an A4 certificate, which is sealed with the King’s seal and your name will be entered in the Hay Peerage archive. A title costs £40 which includes P&P.
