Country home of the Victorian statesman Benjamin Disraeli and secret map making base during the Second World War
Hughenden offers a vivid insight into the charismatic personality and colourful private life of the most unlikely Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, who lived here from 1848 to 1881. Stroll through the rooms Disraeli once called home, and discover something new with a changing exhibition programme.
A secret wartime past is revealed in our Second World War exhibition. Experience the immersive wartime displays in our ice house bunker and find out why Hughenden was high on Hitler's hit list.
The formal gardens are based on the original designs of Mary Anne Disraeli and there are a range of waymarked walks through the woodlands and rolling parkland.
For families follow the woodland play trail, hunt for bugs in the Walled Garden or dress up as a Victorian in the Manor. At holiday times there's always a range of special activities on too from tree climbing to craft days.
