82 million households watched season one of Bridgerton. We’ve found where it was filmed, so you can live out your own steamy English Regency experience.
Think opulent countryside manors, swanky London residences, and real life period dramas. Here’s a teaser if you don’t know it yet.
You might not have binged season 2 as quickly as us, so there are no spoilers here. Nor any images from Netflix. Because that’s a copyright breach and we want to show you places you can actually experience, not what Lord Anthony Bridgerton was doing.
Living Bridgerton in London
Queen Charlotte lives in…Lancaster House & Hampton Court Palace
Bridgerton’s Queen Charlotte is filmed inside the extravagant Lancaster House, which unfortunately is only open for private events. But don’t worry, for a royal experience just go next door, to Buckingham Palace, the real Queen’s residence.
Better still, visit Hampton Court Palace, the lavish home of Henry VIII, a crazy English king who beheaded two of his wives. It’s truly a remarkable place, and also used as the exterior for Queen Charlotte’s palace.
Bridgerton House Is…Ranger’s House in Greenwich
Dress up in your aristocratic finery and take a carriage down to Greenwich in southeast London (a black Hackney carriage is more comfortable than a Bridgerton horse-drawn carriage).
The Bridgerton House exterior is this 18th-century Georgian villa, which is open to the public as an art gallery showcasing the Wernher Collection.
The Gentlemen’s Club Is…The Reform Club
James Bond was another to use this swanky 19th-century gentlemen’s club. To get an invite you need to be entertained by a member, which is no means impossible with the right contacts.
Your Bridgerton Fantasy Hotel Is…The Lanesborough
Bridgerton was set in 1813, so it’s tempting to suggest you stay at Claridge’s, which opened in 1812. But the most splendid regency era hotel in London is undoubtedly The Lanesborough. They even do Bridgerton-inspired high tea, served to your suite or in nearby Hyde Park.

Living Bridgerton Elsewhere
Lady Danbury Lives in… The Holbourne Museum, Bath
Most of the Bridgerton House interiors were filmed at RAF Halton, a royal air force base, where only a museum of old fighter jets is open to the public. So forget that and visit Lady Danbury’s pillared home in Bath, which is the decorative Holbourne Museum. While you’re in Bath, we recommend a stay at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa.
The Ballroom Parties are at…Leigh Court, Bristol
All the glamorous parties actually took place at the not always so glamorous Leigh Court in Bristol – it used to be a mental hospital. Good news though – this Palladian style house is a very good value space for private events.
Daphne & Simon Live in…Castle Howard, York
Where better to start married life than Castle Howard, perhaps the grandest English stately home outside London’s surroundings. Combine your visit here with a stay at Grantley Hall nearby, a 17th-century stately home with 48 suites and a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Your Bridgerton Fantasy Hotel is…Gleneagles
This Scottish country estate is very much the place to pretend you’re the Featheringtons having a picnic. Or a Daphne taking a discrete holiday with her Simon.
We also like Inverlochy Castle Hotel and The Balmoral but they’re not quite regent enough for you Bridgerton lovers out there. .

A custom Bridgerton tour is definitely not our most unconventional request? We’ve had clients wanting to recreate Emily in Paris, the latest James Bond movie, and Game of Thrones locations in Croatia.

However outlandish it may seem, we’re skilled in making it your holiday of a lifetime.
