Country home of the Victorian statesman Benjamin Disraeli and secret map making base during the Second World War

A bit about us

Hughenden offers a vivid insight into the charismatic personality and colourful private life of Britain's most unlikely Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, who lived here from 1848 to 1881. Stroll through the rooms Disraeli once called home, and discover more with a changing exhibition programme. 

A secret wartime past is revealed in our Second World War rooms. 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 enjoy the woodland play area, dress up as a Victorian in the Manor or in holiday times join in one of the special activities on offer.
