Netflix's Bridgerton locations are undoubtedly stunning and whilst each of the residences' names and owners are fictional, the real life filming locations are just as impressive.  

The hit adaptation of Julia Quinn’s books is set in the Regency-era and focuses on the romances, intrigues and gossip of London society. To create the perfect backdrop, Bridgerton had to have the ultimate majestic filming locations. 

Some of the lavish homes were reportedly filmed across several locations. When lockdown restrictions allow it again, you might even be tempted to add some of them to your travel list. 

So prepare to be transported back in time as we reveal the Bridgerton locations you can actually see for yourself…

The Bridgertons’ house

This majestic residence is at the very heart of Netflix’s Bridgerton as the home of the titular family. The widowed Violet, Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton lives there with her eight children. In the show, the beautiful brick house is shown covered with pastel wisteria, with a stylish pillared entrance. 

In real life, this elegant building is a museum - Ranger’s House - which sits on the boundary of Greenwich Park and Blackheath in London. It houses The Wernher Collection, a world-class art collection amassed by the 19th-century businessman, Sir Julius Wernhera and over 700 works of art are displayed across a dozen panelled interiors inside.

The Featheringtons’ house

The Bridgertons’ house may be beautiful, but the home of fellow marriage-seeking family the Featheringtons is just as fabulous. The Featheringtons' home was filmed in a number of real-life locations. One of the most notable of these is reportedly No1 Royal Crescent in Bath which first opened as a museum in 1970.  The rooms feature historic furniture, as well as pictures and objects which form the museum collection. 

Another equally prominent real-life filming location for the Featheringtons’ house is understood to be Hatfield House in Hertfordshire which was once home to Queen Elizabeth I. 

Hatfield House has also been the location for many other popular films including The Favourite starring Oscar winning Olivia Colman. Could it be any more regal?

The Duke of Hastings’ house

In Bridgerton, Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings undoubtedly has one of the most stunning residences around. With expansive gardens and fountains, it quickly takes Daphne Bridgerton’s breath away. And in real life, it might just do the same for fans of the show. 

Owned in real life by the Earl and Countess of Pembroke, Wilton House in Salisbury is a seriously historic building. The buildings and land were granted to Sir William Herbert by King Henry VIII back in 1544. Currently closed due to the pandemic, it is ordinarily open for day visits. 

You might even recognise it from some famous film and television series - Emma, Tomb Raider and The Crown all filmed at Wilton House in recent years.

The Duke and Duchess of Hastings' residence 

Upon officially tying the knot, Simon Basset and Daphne Bridgerton, Duke and Duchess of Hastings move to the fictional - but astonishingly dazzling - Clyvedon Castle.

A variety of locations were used for the exterior and interior of this grand residence, supposedly including Castle Howard, North Mymms Park, Wilton House and also Badminton House in picturesque Gloucestershire. 

Each of these are as breath-taking as you might hope and they are well worth a visit when restrictions permit it.

Queen Charlotte’s residence

Played masterfully by Golda Rosheuvel in Bridgerton, Queen Charlotte quite rightly has one of the most sumptuous homes in the show. The exterior of Queen Charlotte’s residence is understood to be Hampton Court Palace, originally built for King Henry VIII’s chief minister, Cardinal Thomas Wosley. 

Whilst for the interior of the majestic residence, Wilton House is thought to have been enlisted once again, along with Lancaster House in London. Unfortunately this beautiful Grade I listed building is managed by the Foreign and Commonwealth office, and is rarely opened to the public. 

However, Hampton Court Palace receives many visitors each year and transports you back in time as you picture the life of the infamous monarch it’s now associated with. 

Who knew you could experience the magic of Bridgerton locations in real life?
