The eldest daughter goes to the marriage market and soon makes a deal with the Duke of Hastings. They both come up with a plan to fake a love story. But soon the tide turns and real feelings develop.

Much of the filming took place in the city in southwest England – most of the scenes in the series take place at Mayfair’s in London. The film crew also traveled to London, the boroughs of Greenwich and Richmond, among other locations.
The travel reporter shows you the filming locations of the popular Netflix love story, whose second season begins on Friday, March 25, 2022. This revolves around Anthony, the oldest son of the Bridgertons. He is looking for his future wife.

Royal Crescent in Bath
The first filming location in the series is still a jewel of Regency architecture – the imposing Royal Crescent in Bath takes visitors back to a dazzling bygone era. The city of Somerset was a vibrant social hub for the wealthy in the 1800s.
In this imposing building, no. 1 Royal Crescent, for example, is the home of the Featherington family. Overlooking Royal Victoria Park, the house is one of the finest surviving Georgian buildings in Britain. It is actually an 18th century museum – and still set up today as it would have been in the period 1776-1786.
via the bathroom
Various street scenes were filmed on Bath Street. For example, in the location shots of Bridgerton, viewers see Cross Bath; the area is also called the “Spa Quarter of Bath”.
With good reason: at the end there are Cross Baths and Thermae Bath Spa – the rooftop pool offers visitors great views over the city.

Meeting rooms in Bath
Big social events are a major part of the series. Whenever high society gathers to celebrate, gossip and fall in love, it becomes scandalous.
Many of these scenes were filmed in Assembly Rooms’ tearoom and ballroom, designed in 1769 and owned by the National Trust. The premises can be visited and rented for events.

Prior Park in Bath
If you are in Bath, take a stroll in Prior Park. Some scenes from the “Bridgerton” series were also filmed there. Landscape architect Capability Brown’s impressive park is not far from the main train station.
The forester’s house in Greenwich
Ranger’s House in Greenwich in London is the backdrop to the Bridgerton family home. The Georgian villa was in fact a former noble residence, but is now a museum. There you can see the Werher Collection, which includes more than 700 works of art by artists such as Botticelli, Metsu and Monvaerni.
Hampton Court Palace in Richmond
Queen Charlotte resides in the romance series in Henry VIII’s former opulent residence at Hampton Court Palace in Richmond, London. Here you can also take a look inside after a walk along the Thames or in Richmond Park. However, only the exterior facade was used for the shooting.
Lancaster House in Westminster
Lancaster House in Westminster in London was preferred for the interiors of Queen Charlotte’s residence. The imposing Grand Hall with its wide staircase reflects the style of the Palace of Versailles. Lancester House is generally a popular filming location, for example for costume films such as “Downton Abbey”, “The King’s Speech” and “The Crown”.
Castle Howard in Yorkshire – or Clyvedon Castle
The Duke of Hastings’ estate – Clyvedon Castle in the series – is actually Castle Howard in Yorkshire. The magnificent castle has often become the location of famous films, for example in Stanley Kubrick’s “Barry Lyndon”.
The village that the Duke of Hastings frequently visits with his wife is actually the village of Coneysthorpe, which is right next to the castle.
