Millions of viewers have tuned in for Netflix’s Bridgerton as a form of beautiful escapism. Set in Regency-era London, the show follows the romance of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynover) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). While the ornate balls, exquisite gardens, and opulent palaces drew millions of viewers in, we couldn’t help but wonder, where was Bridgerton filmed? Here are a few of the locations that you may want to add to your Bridgerton bucket list for your next adventure.
The City of Bath
The city that plays one of the most significant roles in Bridgerton is Bath, which is the largest city in Somerset, England. Bath is famous for its Roman architecture and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Wisteria-covered exterior of the Bridgerton home was filmed at Ranger’s House. It was built in 1720 for a naval captain and is located between Greenwich Park and Blackheath. The home features a 700-piece-art-collection Wernher Collection of diamond magnate Sir Julius Wernher. The interior was not shot in Ranger’s House and instead filmed at RAF Halton in Buckinghamshire, used to film the hallway, grand hall, stairs, and smoking room.
No. 1 Royal Crescent, a museum, provides the exterior for the Featherington house. Guests to the museum can see what life was like for upscale society from 1776 to 1796. RAF Halton was used for the Featherington’s dining room.
Lady Danbury’s Residence
The exterior of Lady Danbury’s residence is the Holburne Museum of Art, formerly known as the Holburne of Menstrie Museum and the Holburne Museum of Art. It is located in Sydney Pleasure Gardens in Bath, Somerset, England. It is the city’s first public art gallery known for temporary exhibitions, family events, and creative workshops. Guests of the Holburne Museum can also enjoy a bookshop and a café that overlooks the gardens.
The Queen’s Residence
The Hampton Court Palace was used as the exterior of Queen Charlotte’s luxurious palace. It was built in the 1500s for the chief minister of King Henry VIII, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. Lancaster House and Wilton House were used for interior shots of the queen’s abode.
The Duke of Hastings’ Residence
If you love a period drama, you may recognize Wilton House in The Crown, Emma, and Pride and Prejudice. The exterior and parts of the Wilton House interior were used as the lifelong home of the Duke of Hastings. Other filming locations for the Duke’s country home include Syon House and Badminton House.
The Duke and Duchess’ Residence
After the wedding, the Duke and Duchess call fictional Clyvedon Castle home. The exterior shots were filmed at Castle Howard, with interior shots filmed at interiors being North Mymms Park, Wilton House, and Badminton House. An intimate scene between Daphne and the Duke of Hastings was filmed at the Temple of Four Winds at Castle Howard.
The Lavish Balls
Some of the lavish balls on Bridgerton were filmed at the Holburne Museum and the Banqueting Room at Guildhall.
Located in West London, Painshill Park is near Cobham in Surrey, England. It was created and designed between 1738 and 1773 by Irish aristocrat Charles Hamilton and is on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. This 18th-century was very popular for promenading in real life, just as it is in Bridgerton.
Modiste Dress Shop
Modiste dress shop owned by Madame Delacroix in Bridgerton is a quaint coffee shop in real life. Pickled Greens can be found on a charming street in Bath.
