We're still completely obsessed with everything Bridgerton. From the romance to the drama, the stunning costumes, the fabulous Bridherton filming locations and interiors ever since the Netflix drama aired, it was love at first sight. It comes to us as no surprise that 'Where was Bridgerton filmed?' is searched many times over—the locations are pretty epic—so whilst we wait patiently for Bridgerton's second season, we can feast our eyes on all the rather splendid locations. 

The popular series, based on Julia Quinn's bestselling novels and starring Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor, tells the tale of eight siblings in the early 1800s, trying to find love in the world of high society London. As expected, it's set in a gorgeous fairytale-esque setting, with many of the homes and buildings looking quite familiar to some of us. Here's why... 

But where was Bridgerton actually filmed?

The show is based in London, but eagle-eyed viewers will have spotted that the majority of filming was done in the rather picturesque city of Bath. 

In fact, the drama had around 100 filming locations—in Bath and around the rest of the UK.

1. Bath, Somerset

The Somerset city set the backdrop for most of the show—with a museum in the city, called No.1 Royal Crescent, providing the exterior view of Featherington House—the family's main house.

2. Rangers House, Greenwich, London

Meanwhile, the exterior of the Bridgertons home, where Lady Bridgerton resides with her eight children, is Ranger’s House—an art museum located in Greenwich, London that was built in 1722. The scenes inside the home were filmed at RAF Halton—one of the UK’s largest Royal Air Force stations. 

3. Hampton Court Palace, London

As for Queen Charlotte's home, the exterior of this was Hampton Court Palace—a Grade I listed site that was built in the 1500s for the chief minister of King Henry VIII, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. The interior scenes were shot in both Lancaster House and Wilton House. 

Other locations used around the city including art galleries and museums were used for wedding scenes—including Holburne Museum.

4. Wilton House, Syon House and Badminton House

One of the most extravagant homes on the show is, of course, the Duke of Hastings' lifelong residence where he and Daphne move in together after their wedding. This was filmed in different locations: Wilton House, Syon House, and Badminton House, all of which are country estates built hundreds of years ago. 



Some of the locations have previously been used in other Netflix dramas

It's no secret that the same locations are often used in several different shows and films with many stately homes around England being used to film the Netflix series—including one next to Prince Charles' home. 

While the show's production designer Will Hughes-Jones kept the name of the house under wraps, we now know it is Badminton House which was partly used to film the Duke's residence. Hughes-Jones said during a press conference: "That [the house] is regularly used by the royal family, so we would get a very short period of time to get in there, get rid of the 20th century, take it back to our period."

5. Somerley House, Ringwood

Somerley House in Ringwood, which is normally used for British weddings and events was also used as a location in Bridgerton and if you're a fan of The Crown, then you'll recognize it as Charles and Princess Diana's Highgrove house in the popular show. Wilton House (used for both Queen Charlotte and the Duke's homes in Bridgerton)  has also been used by Netflix for The Crown, as well as being a shooting location for movies Emma, and Pride and Prejudice. 

Will we see the same houses—albeit with a makeover—in the upcoming seasons? Only time will tell. 

6. Hatfield house, Hertfordshire

Another of the UK's stately homes that was used in the TV show is Hatfield House, a mansion based in Hertfordshire. The house may look familiar—as it's been the location for other popular films including The Favourite, starring Olivia Coleman and also Netflix film Rebecca.
