Group visits to Hughenden
Hughenden in Buckinghamshire was the country home of Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. We welcome visits from groups of all ages to explore its tranquil garden and woods and learn more about the historic house. Our team will ensure your group has an enjoyable day at this historic place.
Your group visit
Offering a vivid insight into the charismatic personality and colourful private life of the most unlikely Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, a secret wartime history, formal gardens and walks through rolling parkland and woods, Hughenden is a great place to bring a group. Pre-booked group visits are welcome on weekdays, but we regret that we are unable to welcome groups on weekends or bank holidays when the site is at its busiest. Please check with us for availability.
Talks at Hughenden
We can arrange a talk for your group to welcome you to Hughenden, discussing the history of the manor, garden and Hughenden’s wartime story.
Take your party on a walk around the estate: there’s the shady German Forest to discover and the Disraeli monument walk. With colour-coded markers to lead the way, you can follow the marked routes or explore the estate your own way.
Benefits for groups at Hughenden
If you are a group of 10 or more, please pre-book your visit to Hughenden. You’ll benefit from a pre-visit for group leaders to help you plan and make the most of the day and a discounted admission price for groups of 15 or more.
Free familiarisation visits for group leaders
If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at NTTravelTrade@capita.co.uk.
Who is eligible for free entry?
Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.
Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
We ask that payment is made on arrival on the day of your planned visit in one transaction. Payment can be made in cash, by credit card or cheque. Alternatively, if you have a National Trust account, we will invoice you after your visit.
