  • This is my second visit and its amazing how much you miss first time round. This time we walked to the monument up the opposite hill, which gives you a view of the house from a distance. There are som...  more »

  • If you like your political history this is a great place to visit. Original documentation is publicly on view, & in part of it, you feel as if you have been transported back to the 2nd world war. If not, I don't like to say it, but it is a bit boring. The house for me, is nothing spectacular, nor are the gardens compared to a lot of the National Trust places you can go to. But if you are interested, they hold different events throughout the year, one includes a 1940's theme event, where by you can dress up 1940's style, & they have music and singers to go with it all. That sounds worth a visit in itself.
  • Not the prettiest of country houses nor the grandest. The house's style is a tad austere urban and urbane for it's situation. A good deal of memorabilia, free parking and talks offset the significant entry price. Disraeli was probably the best of tories: introducing health and pollution improvements, free parks and museums - together with highlighting inequality and poverty. This reminder of humanitarian Conservatism should shake up current supporters of that ignoble Party.
  • Nice place. Good facilities and decent car park. Large picnic area and children play ground. 7/10
  • Lovely day out; whether you are a budding historian or simply want to take a stroll there is something here for everyone.
  • Very interesting house and garden. Excellent talk on it's wartime roll.
