We come to you, dearest reader, with a most joyous announcement:
That’s right. Everyone’s favorite guilty-pleasure series is back—well, kind of. While we're still waiting for the newest season of Bridgerton to be announced, we're lucky enough to have a new prequel spin-off to hold us over. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is an origin story which highlights the rise to power of the young Queen Charlotte, betrothed to young King George. As their epic love story unfolds, a monumental shift occurs in high society. This is the Ton before Lady Whistledown.
And so, with a new story, you may wonder, “At what locations will Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story be filmed?” Consider us your guide to every locale.
It is our greatest honor to impart to you, gentle readers, this list of Bridgerton filming locations you can visit throughout England.
We’ve begun with the new locations featured in Queen Charlotte, but because we know you love the Ton as much as we do, we’ve also included all your favorite, glamorous places from Bridgerton seasons one and two.
The best places to visit from Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story
- Belton House. This beautiful 17th-century country house is in Lincolnshire, near Grantham. Filming was spotted here last year, so we expect to see the iconic Restoration architecture and lush gardens featured prominently in Queen Charlotte. When not the site of a coming-of-age Ton prequel, the property is managed by the National Trust. Visitors can partake in nature walks on the 1,300-acre homestead or wander the orangery and walled garden that give us quintessential Bridgerton filming location vibes.
- Kew Gardens. Nestled on the banks of the Thames, these gardens contain a small cottage built by the real Queen Charlotte in the late 1700s, which was used by the royal family for resting and taking tea. Today, Kew Gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the world’s most diverse collection of plants. Long rumored to be a Bridgerton filming location, it appears from official Netflix photos that the crew of Queen Charlotte finally landed Kew Gardens for several scenes in the new series. Visiting is an easy ride on the District line of the Tube, making this location where the new Bridgerton spinoff is filmed a wonderful spot to visit on a free day during our London trips.
- Frogmore Cottage (rumored). While we will have to wait and see if Frogmore makes an appearance in Queen Charlotte, or as a future Bridgerton filming location, it is perhaps the most famous current location on our list. Previously the home of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before their move to the United States, Frogmore is now the home of Princess Eugenie and her husband. Built in Windsor Great Park in 1801, the cottage was originally commissioned by Queen Charlotte for use by her daughters.
Locations which also appeared in Bridgerton season one or two
- Ranger’s House. Young Violet Ledger will be a central character in Queen Charlotte, years before she becomes Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton, mother of the Bridgerton children. Ranger’s House will undoubtedly feature prominently as the Bridgerton family home in the prequel. This Georgian villa on the edge of Greenwich Park and Blackheath dates back to the 1720s and is now an art museum. It’s located southeast of London, and visiting is an exquisite way to spend a free afternoon on our London tours and see a Bridgerton filming location.
- The Assembly Rooms. With producers and directors promising plenty of steamy storylines in Queen Charlotte, we know Bath's Assembly Rooms will be front and center for scandal and social interaction throughout the prequel. Several of Bridgerton’s lavish ballroom scenes were filmed in the Assembly Rooms’ Tea Room and Ball Room. The rooms are still in use for functions such as weddings and conferences, and they are open to the public when they’re not used to set up juicy plotlines.
- Wilton House. Expect to see this Wiltshire icon as either Queen Charlotte’s palace or the estate of young Lady Danbury in Queen Charlotte. You'll instantly recognize Wilton, as it is one of the most memorable places to visit from seasons one and two of Bridgerton. It’s home to collections of work by Shakespeare and artist Anthony Van Dyck, along with many different scenic locations throughout the grounds that are open to all who visit.
- The Holburne Museum. This now-museum’s exterior was the filming site of one of the first grand balls in Bridgerton and regularly appears as Lady Danbury’s home. With young Lady Danbury playing a prominent role in Queen Charlotte, we know we’ll be seeing plenty of Holburne in the prequel. Fun fact: Before it was a Bridgerton filming location, this museum was Bath’s first public art gallery. On our Great Britain tours, you'll stay at a hotel a short walk from the museum, making it easy to check this spot off your list of Queen Charlotte filming sites.
The best Bridgerton filming locations to visit from seasons one and two
The Reform Club. This 19th-century gentleman’s club on Pall Mall was a place for radical political thinkers. It’s also where the Duke of Hastings and Viscount Bridgerton meet in the first episode. It’s right down the street from Trafalgar Square, which you’ll visit on all our trips to London.
The Lancaster House. The site of some of the grandest home interior scenes, this mansion resides in London’s West End along Green Park and St. James’s Park. It’s a spectacular place for architecture lovers to visit.
Syon House. Located in Brentford close to the Royal Botanic Gardens, this profoundly historic home was used for Simon’s father’s office, and for Queen Charlotte’s dinner meeting place. In reality, it’s been in the family of its present owners for over 400 years.
Hampton Court Palace. Hampton Court Palace served as the home of King Henry VIII in real life and—as Queen Charlotte's pad in Bridgerton. This famous attraction in London is open for visitors to soak in the royalty.
The Old Royal Navy College. The Queen’s House and the Royal Naval College appear as the exterior of Somerset House in Bridgerton. The Old Royal Navy College is a popular filming location and has also been featured in period dramas like The Crown and Les Misérables. Oh yeah, and some new faces get introduced here in Bridgerton season 2. Exciting!
Windsor Great Park. This park substitutes for the actual Battersea Fields and Rotten Row in Bridgerton, and in real life it’s a public green space on the doorstep of the world’s largest and longest-inhabited castle: Windsor Castle. Add the Windsor Castle excursion on all London tours, and you’ll get to join a Blue Badge Guide on a tour through the State Apartments, St. George’s Chapel, and more.
- No. 1 Royal Crescent. The exterior of this iconically curved, late-1700s aristocratic residence is the home of the Featherington family in Bridgerton. In reality, it’s a museum that gives visitors a glimpse into the lifestyles of residents past. You can visit for an elegant, 18th-century-style afternoon tea on our Grand Tour of Great Britain.
- Beauford Square & Trim Street. Beauford Square, a small garden behind the Theatre Royal, is where Eloise and Penelope have a big conversation about Marina’s pregnancy in Bridgerton. Next to Beauford Square is Trim Street, which was built in 1707 and is lined with plaques celebrating famous past residents. Simon and Daphne meet at the fictional Gunter’s Tea Shop on Trim Street in season 1 episode 3.
- Abbey Deli. Walk the cobbled streets of Abbey Green and, amongst the charming boutiques, you’ll spot Abbey Deli. Bridgerton set dressers worked their magic to turn this sandwich shop into Modiste—the show’s high-fashion dress shop. Don your best outfit and stroll around in style like the characters in the show.

Additional Bridgerton filming locations
Badminton House. One of the most jaw-dropping homes in the show is the Duke of Hastings’ residence, where he and Daphne move in together after their wedding. Several kings and queens have visited the 17th-century estate through the years. So, naturally, it was chosen to play a part in the show.
West Wycombe Park. Unique is the perfect word to describe West Wycombe Park. The architecture fuses styles of both Palladian and Neoclassical. One of the finest surviving 18th-century landscape gardens, West Wycombe Park is home to eccentric buildings, scenic fountains, and grand temples. You can’t miss this one-of-a-kind estate in Bridgerton season 2.
Wrotham Park. Another filming hotspot, Wrotham Park is a neo-Palladian country house in Hertfordshire. You may have seen it in popular shows and films such as The Crown and the Kingsman franchise. If not, you’ll catch a glimpse of this stunner in Bridgerton season 2.
The Historic Dockyard Chatham. Remember when Lady Featherington took Marina to see the slums in an attempt to scare her? Those scenes took place at this Bridgerton filming location. In reality, it’s not as glum as it appears. This dockyard is full of cobblestone streets and rich maritime history.
Painshill Park. This picturesque Surrey park where the Featherington family promenades was designed in the mid-1700s, and remains intact to this day.
Castle Howard. Many people ask, “Where is Bridgerton filmed?” The answer, of course, depends on the episode. Much of the series takes place at The Duke of Hastings’ home, which is actually a private Yorkshire residence that’s been in one family’s ownership for over 300 years.
The Hatfield House. This regal Hertfordshire estate is no stranger to television, and has also shown itself in The Crown and Rebecca. Visitors are welcome to explore the park, gardens, woodlands, stableyard shops, and coach house kitchen for a unique experience.
Leigh Court. You may recognize the striking double staircase from this beautiful ballroom. Any are welcome to visit this historic mansion in Bristol. It’s even available as a wedding venue!
