And so, it is our greatest honor to impart to you, gentle readers, this list of Bridgerton filming locations you can visit throughout England. Peruse our favorite glamorous spots from seasons one and two.
The best places to visit from Bridgerton in London
- Ranger’s House. You may recognize this as home to the Bridgerton family themselves. 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.
- 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 is also the pad of Queen Charlotte in Bridgerton. This famous attraction in London is open for visitors to soak in the royalty.
- The Old Royal Navy College in Greenwich, South London. 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 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.

Bridgerton filming locations in Bath
- 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.
- The Holburne Museum. You might recognize this museum’s exterior from one of the great balls in Bridgerton. This museum is Bath’s first public art gallery. One of the hotels you’ll stay in on our Great Britain tour is just around the corner from this museum, making it the perfect Bridgerton filming location to visit during free time.
- Assembly Rooms. Home of some of the most scandalous Bridgerton storylines and once the social epicenter of Bath, the Assembly Rooms are where high society comes together to celebrate. Several of Bridgerton’s lavish ballroom scenes are 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 Bridgerton plotlines
- 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 episode 3.
- Abbey Deli on Abbey Green. Walk the cobbled streets here 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 Kingsmen. If not, you’ll catch a glimpse of this stunner in Bridgerton season 2.
- The Historic Dockyard Chatham in Kent. 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.
- Wilton House in Wiltshire. This is one of the most memorable places to visit from Bridgerton. The Wilton House is in many lavish scenes in the show’s version of the Royal Palace, Simon’s home, and even London’s Hyde Park. 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.
