This is the home of the Victorian Prime Minister Disreali and was later used as the base for map making during the second world war. In both instances the NT have done a great job in bringing the history to life with lots of content. Our only dissappointment was that filming was taking place on the first floor so we... More

We went to Hughenden Manor with another family on a weekday during the school holidays. Although they don't have a playground, there was plenty for the kids to be occupied with. In the walled garden, there were lots of fruits and vegetables to spot, as well as the butterfly/insect trails which could be picked up for the children to explore... More

Well worth every penny of the entrance fee and the grounds are fantastic. This is a house with a great deal of stuff to look at...all interesting. The house belonged to Disreali ..an English PM in Qn. Victoria's reign and the furniture and things on show gave us an interesting afternoon. The grounds are wonderful...full of amazing trees and places... More

The exhibition in the basement is brilliant, so much on the map readers of the Second World War , they have truly put... More

The history of Benjamin Disraeli and his home was really interesting. The staff here were all really helpful and offered some fascinating insights. It was of particular note to see Margaret Thatcher's last despatch box, also kept on the premises. The grounds were really pleasant to stroll through. The kitchen garden was lovely and we even picked up a couple... More

Car parks very busy. If disabled ask parking attendant about closer parking to entrance. Quite rough ground from main car parks. House well worth a visit and friendly staff. Rooms very interesting and learned a lot about Disraeli from print outs in rooms or staff very knowledgable. Exhibition on top floor very good. Below stair exhibition on war time mapping... More

Hughenden Manor is one of the best National Trust locations we have visited. They provide fascinating WWII and Disraeli tours and historical talks, a furnished manor house to walk around and knowledgeable and helpful guides everywhere. There are the major gardens of the estate to see, a walled garden, and a wonderful lawn in front of the house where games... More

What an interesting house and story about Disraeli. The tour guides were excellent and gave very good talks before we went round the house. The Hillside exhibition was particularly interesting and the guide had a nice way with him but we were disappointed that he only took us to the ice house and didn't take us down into the basement...

On the lawned area of the stunning formal gardens were children's Victorian games such as quoits, diablo, croquet etc laid out... More

Hughenden is a delightful National Trust property. The house itself (former home of Disraeli) is quite sombre looking with typically Victorian interiors but is full of interesting items and information about Disraeli and his wife. The top floor provides a light and airy space from which to view the gardens and surrounding Chiltern countryside. Staff and volunteers are knowledgeable, enthusiastic... More
