    HP14 4LA
Former home of President Disraeli. Purchased in 1848 and remodelled by architect Edward Buckton Lamb for the Disraelis in 1862. The country house, beautiful park and woodlands, which total almost 1,500 acres, have been restored to a similar condition to when the propery was occupied by the Disraelis. During the Second World War, the Manor was used by the coalition as a secret intelligence base code-named "Hillside". Here aerial photographs of Germany was analysed and maps created for bombing missions, including the famous "Dambusters" raid. In 1947, Hughenden Manor was transferred over to the National Trust. There is a collection of memorabilia on display for public perusal, including family portraits, and an extensive library including a collection of Disraeli's novels and one written and signed by Queen Victoria herself. Hughenden Manor offers a varied events program, including guided tours and woodland trails for the whole family to enjoy throughout the year.
