Hughenden is at the top of a hill to the side of High Wycombe. It is very popular with families, as it has superb woodland and play equipment as well as a dedicated picnic area. The exhibitions in the house are varied and interesting over all the floors, illuminating the life of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli and his relationship with Queen Victoria. In the basement, you can imagine the secret work of the the war effort. The house itself is of a classical style from the Georgian era and it is surrounded by a beautiful garden with stunning views. Well worth a look.
A real gem. A wonderful house to visit and beautiful gardens. The country home of a Victorian prime minister and a royal favourite the house has many presents on display given by the queen. The house packed with furniture and displays, feels like a home rather than a show house. Used in WW2 as centre of map making there are dedicated displays of this part of the houses history. The gardens are parkland are beautifully laid out, with formal and pleasure gardens and rolling parkland. This is a National Trust property so you will pay entrance and parking unless a member. There is an excellent cafe serving freshly prepared meals and cakes.
