Visit seven new Bridgerton filming sites


Bridgerton is back, and here are the top Regency-era England spots, from London mansions to Bath ballrooms

Netflix’s Bridgerton season three premiered on May 16, inspiring viewers to do more than watch Regency-era high society seduction and scandal. Trainline, a British rail- and bus-booking platform, reports that trips to Bridgerton-based destinations across England have increased by 50% in the last year and 135% among American travelers.

VisitBritain CEO Patricia Yates said Bridgerton’s new season can “promote [Britain’s] world-renowned history and heritage and associated experiences to a global audience, inspiring visitors to come and see the filming locations and destinations for themselves.”


Bridgerton’s opulent drama may be seen in seven English locations, from London mansions to Bath ballrooms.

England’s capital has something for Bridgerton fans. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story fans must visit Kew Palace’s Royal Botanical Gardens on the Thames. Much of King George III and Queen Charlotte’s family history is preserved at Kew Palace, a museum. Kew’s Belton House and the King’s Observatory, established in 1769 at George’s request to monitor Venus’ transit, were used for several prelude sequences.


Eloise and Penelope enthusiasts might visit Hatchard’s, London’s oldest bookshop, established in 1797. Season two’s dramatic wedding scene between Anthony Bridgerton and Edwina Sharma took place at St James’s Church in Piccadilly. Fans must attend a service to see the inside shooting sites since it’s a functional church.

Greater London has more Bridgerton. Somerset House, where Prince Friedrich of Prussia’s royal ball was held, was filmed in Greenwich’s Queen’s House. To recreate Regency-era London buildings, the Old Royal Naval College and Ranger’s House provided outside facades for several shots. You may also visit Hampton Court Palace in Richmond. Master Carpenter’s Court, Fountain Court, Clock Court, Base Court, King’s Stairs, and Gardens were filmed.

Lady Featherington toured the slums with her ward, Marina, in Chatham, an hour east of London. The Historic Dockyard, where the boxing saloon was filmed in season one, is also in Chatham. The Duke prepared his one-two punch with sparring partner Will Mondrich. Regency-era Black fighter Bill Richmond, known as “Britain’s first Black sports star”, influenced Mondrich.


Beautiful Bath in south-west England stars in Bridgerton. “The city’s golden, Georgian stone and grand buildings make the perfect stand-in for Regency London and provide fabulous inspiration for visitors planning a trip to the UK and Bath,” a Visit West representative told the BBC.

The Holbourne Museum should be Bridgerton fans’ first stop in Bath after the 90-minute train travel from London. “We’re delighted to be known as ‘Lady Danbury’s House’ from Bridgerton and welcome the many tourists who come to take pictures of our beautiful Regency building,” a museum rep told the BBC. The Holbourne and its half-acre of beautiful grounds have captivated discriminating guests for generations since its 1794 founding as the Sydney Hotel. A Queen Charlotte wig is on exhibit inside the hotel, which became a museum in 1916.

Queen Charlotte herself stayed opposite the Sydney Hotel on Sydney Place when she came to Bath ‘to take the waters’ in 1817, which were believed to help a variety of health conditions,” the rep claimed. A picture of Queen Charlotte, a snuffbox from 1770, and a mantel clock by a Queen Charlotte watchmaker are all genuine to the Bridgerton series.

The series’ Featherington residence’s Georgian townhouse facade is at the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa. The arc of the Royal Crescent and its groomed grass facing Royal Victoria Park are instantly recognizable.

After a Bridgerton-themed walking tour, have “Lady Whistledown” tea at The Pump Room Restaurant, The Abbey Hotel Tea Bar, or Roseate Villa Bath for a really English afternoon tea. The Abbey Deli, Madame Delacroix’s Modiste store, serves food throughout the series.

The Fancy Ball at the National Trust’s Bath Assembly Rooms, where Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset shot several ballroom sequences, occurs on June 15. Event invites participants to wear Bridgerton-era formalwear for one night.

If you miss the main event, the Dressing Fancy Georgian dress exhibit runs until 30 June.

Simon Basset and Daphne Bridgerton honeymoon in Castle Howard and grounds (Clyvedon Estate in the series) near York, north-east England. “On 19 May and 23 June, visitors can enjoy a picnic afternoon tea in the beautiful grounds of Castle Howard whilst listening to the show’s soundtrack played by a string quartet,” he added.

Castle Howard is little under two hours from London by rail and has enough to do. A scenic sail on the estate’s North Lake costs £5 for adults and £3 for youngsters. Gardens Tickets include Skelf Island and its adventure ground. All ages may use the tree-top ropes course and climbing gear.

Previously featured in Downton Abbey, Kingston Bagpuize House & Gardens in Oxfordshire is a new shooting site for Bridgerton season three. The nearest train station is Didcot Parkway, and children under 11 enter for free (adults pay £10 to tour the home and grounds).

Blenheim Palace, a Unesco World Heritage Site in Oxfordshire, represents Buckingham House, Queen Charlotte and King George III’s house in the play. The English Baroque architecture and masonry make it suitable for shooting.


Fans of the program may easily get their fix in Surrey, south-west of London, by rail. Painshill Park hosted the Featherington family picnic in Bridgerton season one. Season three may include it again.

It blends 1800s and contemporary appeal, designed by Charles Hamilton to resemble a live landscape picture. Visit the Bugs and Butterflies Trail from 25 May to 25 June to trek around the garden and look for insects and pollinators. Visit the stunning grottos and lake and try Painshill’s sparkling wine and winter gin.


Jody Ford, Trainline’s CEO, said the Bridgerton actors filmed a season three scene at Claydon House in Buckinghamshire. Florence Nightingale frequented the 18th-century rural home, but we don’t know how many shots were filmed there.

A Claydon House museum room tour is immersive, unlike other historical residences. While the Verney family has lived in the whole home since 1620, several rooms are available to the public. Volunteers provide tours so tourists may sit on couches and handle furniture like Bridgerton residents 200 years ago.
