Hughenden's wartime story
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.
The Disraeli's - colourful characters
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.
Art in our parkland
Each summer the parkland at Hughenden forms an outdoor gallery for some artwork. The artists may be local and still learning their craft or established exponents of large scale installations but the theme is always in sympathy with Hughenden and its past.
Each season has treasure to spot
Dogs have always enjoyed Hughenden walks
The Disraeli's were fond of their dogs and a corner of the estate was used to bury them, each with its own headstone. Our four legged visitors can still enjoy the majority of the estate.
