The staff were all very knowledgeable about Disraeli. The exhibition in the basement about the wartime map-makers housed in Hughenden was very interesting.

Interesting guide who explained history of Disraeli and this house. Good to see lots of original furniture, pictures, etc. also hand written notes by Queen Victoria. House seemed quite dark in most rooms. Unable to explore grounds outside as very wet day. Basement better lit with history of map making. House closed 3.30pm as opening hours are shorter in winter...

We arrived at Hughenden at lunch time on a recent drab autumn Sunday to find the car park full. Fortunately, after driving around once, one car was leaving so we were able to take their place. We were able to join a free tour of the World War II Exhibition with a very knowledgeable and humorous guide and learned a... More

Well worth a visit if you are into your history! Interesting World War 2 display downstairs and upstairs rooms as they would have been when Disraeli was there. I certainly know more about him now than I did before I went. volunteers full of knowledge.

We picked a wet day but enjoyed our visit, highlight for me was the RAF exhibition in the cellar, not to be missed. The grounds look good but we will have to pick a better day to enjoy them. The church in the grounds is also worth a visit.

A great place to spend several hours learning about Benjamin Disraeli and what role Hughendon manor played in WWII. The adjoining park and woodland is a great place for dog walkers. We went last Boxing day and they had mulled cider and mince pies available.

Visited with daughter who is at university in area. Really interesting house, daughter especially enjoyed the WW2 exhibition with a replica air raid shelter and living room. Lots to see in the house. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely tea rooms in the old stables. Didn't get to see the ice house as they were closing up just as we got... More

Spent a half term day out with the grandchildren at Hughenden Manor. Very accommodating and friendly staff. A superb day, the staff had worked really hard to offer many activities for all the family. Would recommend anyone to visit, find out about the famous Benjamin Disraeli and what part in WW2 did Hughenden Manor play?

I am lucky enough to live very close to this Manor House, and my grandchildren , age 10 and 8 love to take a long walk through woods to get to the manor house. The house is set in a park with wonderful views, perfect for young children to run around safely. It has a little stream running at the... More

As I only live a stones throw away in Hughenden Valley I have visited many many times. Interesting visits! They have varied theme times mainly WW2 and what went on during the war. There are things for the children, a lovely restaurant and gardens. At Christmas the house is dressed and looks lovely. A good visit at anytime.
