Where is Bridgerton filmed? The real life locations to visit

Simon Calder’s Travel

Bridgerton has bewitched viewers with epic love stories, 1800s etiquette and elegant sets since the show first aired in 2020 and Netflix is soon headed back to the Regency-era Ton for season three.

The series, based on Julia Quinn’s novels, have been hailed for their backdrop to the Georgian high society marriage mart seen on screen.

For ‘Polin’ season, lead love interests Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton will undoubtedly promenade parks in bloom, quadrille at lavish balls and court at country homes across England.

Though set in Mayfair, London with houses intended to sit in the elite Grosvenor Square, Lady Whistledown’s scandal sheets actually deliver to filming locations across Bath, London and Surrey.

With many of the stately homes ticketed and open to the public outside of filming periods, here are the real-life locations you can visit for a behind-the-scenes tour of the sordid ‘ton’.

Aside from the manors that host the Bridgerton, Featherington and Sharma families, filming locations for the series are scattered across the country.

In the capital, the cameras have rolled at The Old Royal Naval College, and in West Sussex, the National Trust property Petworth Park houses the art collections visited by members of the high society in the first two seasons.

Painshill Park in Cobham, Surrey and the grounds of Windsor Great Park was used for couples to promenade in place of Primrose Hill and intense horse riding scenes between Anthony and Kate.

Elsewhere, locations spanning Bath have set up shots of Regency ‘London’ including Beauford Square and The Abbey Deli – a real-life cafe on Abbey St that doubles as the Modiste Dress Shop.

The exterior of the Bridgerton home of siblings A to H is filmed at Ranger’s House, an art gallery located in Blackheath to the west of Greenwich Park. The Georgian red-brick mansion is adorned with wisterias and houses the Wernher Collection of art – a ticketed gallery of 700 works of art from Renaissance to French tapestries.
