Bring Bridgerton to life
Although a date has yet to be announced, fans are hoping Season 3 of the popular Netflix historical drama will be released in 2023. Featuring scandalous storylines, opulent settings and colourful costumes, Bridgerton's popularity is understandably rooted in its escapism to a world of gossip-rich, 18th-century high society.
Although the story itself is set in Regency-era Mayfair, shooting for the series took place in several locations across England. Fan of the show? See Bridgerton get brought to life at these eight AA- and VisitEngland-rated filming locations.
Built in 1723, this elegant Georgian villa serves as the wisteria-adorned exterior of the Bridgerton family home. Off-screen, the house was the official residence of the Rangers of Greenwich Park during the 19th century and today houses the world-class Wernher art collection.
The Assembly Rooms were at the heart of fashionable Georgian society. Fitting, then, that this striking Bath entertainment venue provided the setting for several of Bridgerton’s extravagant ballroom scenes – including Lady Danbury’s ball, which was filmed in the Tea Room.
One of the Bath’s most iconic landmarks, No. 1 Royal Crescent, was used for the exterior shots of Featherington House. In real life the building houses a museum which offers a wonderfully immersive experience of life in Georgian Bath.
Known as the jewel in Bath’s crown, the Holburne Museum and Gallery houses an impressive art collection and has been lovingly restored with a striking new extension. If the exterior looks familiar, it’s because it served as the exterior of Lady Danbury’s home.
This magnificent house on the outskirts of York boasts a rich history, dramatic interiors and extensive parklands, all of which prove perfect for the Duke of Hastings’ impressive estate, Clyvedon Castle. A number of scenes based in the grounds were also filmed in the nearby village of Coneysthorpe.
Stowe House was originally the country seat of the influential Temple-Grenville family, who created an enchanting landscape filled with temples in the 18th century. The gardens were used in Bridgerton’s outdoor party scenes – the Temple of Venus was the setting for the dancing scenes at the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens party.
Regarded as one of the finest examples of the English Landscape Movement, Painshill was designed by Charles Hamilton as a series of subtle and surprising vistas. The Bridgerton characters promenade and picnic here, with the lake and Five Arch Bridge making an appearance in the background.
Wilton House is home to the Earl and Countess of Pembroke and provides a fascinating insight into British history. This Palladian mansion appears in several period dramas; in Bridgerton it was used for several settings, including the Queen’s palace and the interior of Clyvedon Castle.
