Home of Queen Victoria's favourite Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, there are quite a lot of interesting items and portraits in the house linking him to Queen Victoria. A secret wartime past is revealed in the Second World War room in the cellars, which houses exhibits and eye-witness accounts. There is also a short film to watch. The Ice house bunker... More

A great place to visit for a walk and to steep oneself in the history of Benjamin Disraeli. Particularly nice that it is not too commercialised jut having a small shop and a café/restaurant. It is often quiet during the week and really nice to go and sit in the walled garden which is still in working mode. A lovely... More

I went there on a lovely hot sunny day. The house is lovely and quirky and the grounds gorgeous. We sat with our feet in the stream and watched the kites. Gorgeous.

We had a most enjoyable day at Hughenden. 1940's music and dancing and fashion show. 1940's cars jeeps and much more. We had a late lunch there as we did not want to miss anything. There was a secret talk about the war which was delivered very well and even I did not say lets move on! Apparently the S.A.S... More

We were killing time the first time we visited and thought we would just have a quick look around. However, we got so engrossed around the house, we had to return for a second visit to be able to walk around the grounds. There was a NT volunteer in one of the bedrooms, dusting the skirting boards, who told us... More

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 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
