  • Visited here mainly because of the Disraili connection but we were more taken by the WW2 story. The premises was used by the RAF in the war to create detailed maps for Bomber Command. The was an excel...  more »

  • This is my second visit and its amazing how much you miss first time round. This time we walked to the monument up the opposite hill, which gives you a view of the house from a distance. There are som...  more »

  • A wonderful collection of history under one roof, from the affection between a queen and her prime minister to the intelligence gathering for literally mapping out the events of world war two. A very useful and educational time capsule. Lovely gardens and beautiful scenery. Plenty of space for a picnic in the grounds or very nice cafe serving home made meals if preferred. Buggy ride available for elderly and infirm between car park and house. Advisable as down hill to the house but a bit steep on the return to the car park. Well worth a second visit.
  • The history is amazing, particularly the WWII history. Disraeli is a fascinating character & taking the tours are well worth it. We did the Disraeli tour which is actually a 15 min lecture but the speaker was fantastic! He really made Disraeli come to life. We also did the WWII guide. In the ice room, you will have a fun surprise. The guides are well versed in the history of the manor & are open to questions. We went in early March so dis not spend too much time outside (muddy) so will go back in May/June so we can walk to the monument...plus see all the flowers in bloom. Become a National Trust member, saves you so much money.
  • The manor is an example of the National Trust at its best. On a visit one can peel back multiple layers - the connections with Disraeli, the role the house played in WW II, the history of the garden, the beauty of the garden, intriguing walks in the grounds, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable room stewards and guides and a small cafe in the stables with good food and snacks. Top marks all around.
  • A beautiful old stately home, former residence of Benjamin Disraeli and frequented by Winston Churchill. A very interesting place to visit. On top of this, there are wonderful gardens, beautiful woodland and a lovely cafe and picnic area. A must visit for everyone young and old.
  • Like many National Trust houses Hughenden Manor is a very interesting blend of history, architecture and human stories. It's also the home of interesting gardens set in acres of undulating grounds. The room stewards are, as usual, a valuable resource, very knowledgeable and will to find an answer when they don't know themselves.
