What's on

There’s plenty going on at Hughenden this year. So make the most of your day out by taking a look at our events calendar.

Activities for children

Try our I-Spy trails in the manor or the bird trail in the walled garden. Or enjoy a wild walk through the woodlands using one of our trails. Pick up your trails from the ticket office.


Wonderful walks

Pick up one of our walk leaflets or download our map. Magnificent red kites, splashes of autumn colour, the sound of bird call or church bells are some of the surprises that await.

Hughenden as it might have looked during war

Some of Hughenden's wartime activities became known comparatively recently.  Visit the cellars in the house, the ice house, the walled garden or apiary as each was important in the Dig for Victory campaign.  Special events recreate the atmosphere but whenever you visit this fascinating aspect of Hughenden can be seen.

To uncover Hughenden’s exciting past, why not attend an introductory talk? There's also a tour at 10.40am every day we're open. Talks on Disraeli, the Second World War and our garden take place all through the afternoon. Times vary daily, so please check the information board in our ticket office when you arrive.
