Bridgerton Filming Locations
How many of us have blurted out, “Oh, I’ve been there!” when Daphne and Simon were walking in front of a particularly grand façade? Here’s a quick recap of some of Bridgerton’s most iconic filming locations to inspire your vacation hunt.
Rangers Home, Greenwich
A must-see filming location is that of the series’ namesake: The Bridgertons. Exterior views of their wisteria-filled house are of Ranger’s House in Greenwich. Built in Georgian times, the house houses the 700-piece art collection of Sir Julius Wernher, a 19th-century businessman.
Wilton House, Salisbury
Located a short drive from Salisbury, exterior shots of Wilton House are used to the Duke of Hastings’ mansion throughout the show. His interiors also make appearances during the season.
The Royal Crescent, Bath
Essentially British, the Royal Crescent is a magnificent example of Georgian architecture. Posing as London, you’ll see this location used for exterior views of Featherington’s house.
Lancaster House, London
Just around the corner from Green Park and St James’ Park along The Mall you come to the historic Lancaster House. This location is used for interior shots of Queen Charlotte’s residence.
Castle Howard, York
Grand and opulent, Castle Howard makes appearances in Bridgerton as the exterior of Clyvedon House.
Holidays like in 1813
Visiting the filming locations of Bridgerton calls for a country retreat fit for a queen. For lovers of all things Regency-era, these are incredible hideaways for the perfect weekend.
The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa
If you want the ultimate Bridgerton getaway, a few nights at the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa should do the trick.
Centrally located in the Royal Crescent, this hotel and spa is a luxury staple while the building itself is steeped in history. Minutes from the heart of the city, you can enjoy all that Bath has to offer and the sights in front of you, including the Holburne Museum (whose facade you’ll recognize as Lady Danbury’s house). But the city isn’t all this hotel has to offer.
The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is just as much a destination in its own right. With 24-hour room service, a restaurant, bar, and full-service spa, booking one of the 45 rooms at this A-grade Bridgerton spot is a must.

Steeped in history, Ellenborough Park dates back to the late 1400s. In the 1830s it became the home of the first Earl of Ellenborough, after whom the hotel is named. Wandering its halls is a treat for those obsessed with the quintessential British country house aesthetic.
With its rolling lawns and manicured gardens, it’s the perfect spot for a sunny getaway. And if you’re looking for more Bridgerton-style sights, spend a day exploring nearby Sudeley Castle. Opened in March, this must-see landmark is a Grade I listed building and the only private castle in England that is the final resting place of a queen, Katherine Parr.
Ellenborough Park is not only a country gem, it offers guests access to its full-service spa, indoor and outdoor pools, two restaurants, bar and lounges. Family friendly, there is plenty to do with your children and pets are also welcome.

Kilworth House Hotel and Theater
The Kilworth House Hotel is capable of transporting you to another time and another world. Not a single detail is spared at Kilworth. Decadent style, it looks like Geneviève Delacroix herself could have chosen the miles of fabrics from her clothing boutique that decorate the hotel.
With such incredible interiors, it’s no surprise that the grounds of this hotel are equally immaculate. Gardens give way to secluded hideaways that make perfect secret reading spots.
We love Kilworth House Hotel’s conservatory which makes dining a breathtaking experience as well as its outdoor theater which is sure to provide entertainment.
