Country home of the Victorian statesman Benjamin Disraeli
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. You can browse among an extraordinary collection of personal memorabilia in rooms on the ground and first floor, and there’s even a Victorian playroom for younger visitors. On the top floor is our special exhibition space with a timeline of Hughenden’s history for you to explore.
A secret wartime past is revealed in our Second World War rooms in the cellar, with interactive exhibits and eye-witness accounts. Experience the immersive wartime displays in our ice house bunker and find out why Hughenden was high on Hitler’s hit list.
The formal garden has been recreated based on the original designs of Mary Anne Disraeli and there are woodland walks surrounding this country home throughout our rolling parkland.
