Hughenden Manor - National Trust

Owned by the National Trust, this was the Country home of the Victorian statesman Benjamin Disraeli. Hughenden Manor 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.

 

Visitors can browse among an extraordinary collection of personal memorabilia and there are hands-on activities for children.

 

Hughenden's secret wartime past is revealed in our Second World War room in the cellars, with interactive exhibits and eye-witness accounts.

 

The formal garden has been recreated based on the original designs of Mary Anne Disraeli and there are beautiful woodland walks surrounding this fascinating country home.
