Hats may also be removed within any enclosed external seating area within the Royal Enclosure Gardens. The customisation of top hats (with, for example, coloured ribbons or bands) is not permitted in the Royal Enclosure."

All of our Royal Ascot suit hires come with slim fit trousers for a more contemporary cut. The price to hire a complete lounge or tailcoat is *£195.00. Alternatively a 2 piece suit is *£125.00.
