The woodland walk has amazing views thankfully the weather was kind to us. We went on the taster talk so glad we did the guide was very knowledgable about this house and who is who in politics. 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...

I have just spent the most enjoyable of days with my daughter and grandsons 5 and 2 at this most beautiful of locations. All the staff and volunteers we met made us feel so welcome and were most helpful. 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

Visited with wife, daughter and grandson. Took a tour of the gardens and ended up playing quoits and croquet on the lawn. All the toys and equipment left out for visitors to use, was a nice touch. The house itself is stunning with interest in all rooms. Staff are very very helpful and only too keen to assist in any... More

Spent a great afternoon at Hughenden Manor. The home of Benjamin Disraeli. The house is lovely and has a fasinating history to go with it. Fabulous views from the top floor. The National Trust staff were really friendly, the shop is pretty standard but the cafe has some nice food. Expect a queue though. Didn't venture into the gardens but... More

I visited here on my own, but with friends could have easily spent a whole day here! There's plenty of space to eat a picnic, lots of lovely walks to go on and plenty to explore. I went on 2 of the tours (both of which were free!) looking at Disraeli's Life and then at how the house was used... More
