The home of Benjamin Disraeli - Hughenden, Buckinghamshire

The parterre and south front of the house at Hughenden, Buckinghamshire

Amid rolling Chilterns countryside sits the home of Benjamin Disraeli, Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister.

Acquired in the midst of his political career, he turned it, with great help from his dedicated wife, Mary Anne, into the country house needed to secure his political aspirations.

Follow in his footsteps through the atmospheric manor to discover his colourful private life, and why he was such an unlikely Prime Minister. There's a display of personal memorabilia, a Victorian playroom and the largest horse chestnut tree in the UK too.
