The UK's only museum dedicated to the hatting industry, hats and headwear. Visit our recreated hat factory with machinery dating back to Victorian times and an exquisite collection of over 400 hats. Hat Works is an explosive hub of excellence, creativity and innovation for milliners, designer-makers and those with an interest in couture fashion and cutting edge design.

Hat Works is currently closed temporarily whilst we redevelop our 'gallery of Hats' and restore the Victorian hatting machines on the factory floor. our museum shop will remain open and we will also run special events during this period.
