Hughenden Manor is the former home of Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli and much of the house is decorated as it would have been in his time. During the Second World War the house was code-named Hillside. It was here that the Air Ministry analysed aerial photography of Germany and created maps for bombing missions, including the famous Dambusters Raid. The gardens are of an Italianate style and were designed by Disraeli’s wife Mary Ann. Our return journey takes us via the riverside town of Henley on Thames, where we will stop and allow time for you to purchase tea.
