Benjamin Disraeli died here

Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli died here in 1881.

Location: 19 Curzon Street, London

Description: Here, Benjamin Disraeli, three-times Chancellor of the Exchequer and twice Prime Minister, died on 19th April 1881.

He had bought the house with the proceeds of his book Endymion for 10,000. As he lay dying, straw was spread on the road outside, so that passing carriages would not disturb him.

He left instructions that he was not to be given state funeral. Honouring a promise to Mary Anne, he is buried alongside her at Hughenden Church.
