With Bridgerton back on our screens in just a matter of days, we're rekindling our love for everything the show has to offer. 

From the romance to the drama, to the stunning costumes and the fabulous Bridgerton filming locations—ever since the Netflix drama first aired, it was love at first sight. And it comes to us as no surprise that "Where was Bridgerton filmed?" is one of the most highly-searched topics about the show, as all of the locations are pretty epic. So whilst we wait patiently for Bridgerton season 2, which is just a few days away—Friday, March 25 can't come soon enough—we can feast our eyes on all the rather splendid locations. 

The popular series—which is based on Julia Quinn's bestselling novels and stars Phoebe Dynevor, Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley—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... 

'Bridgerton' filming locations you can visit IRL

The show is based in London, but eagle-eyed viewers will have spotted that the majority of filming for season one 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. For Bridgerton season two, the production traveled to 86 different location sets according to production designer Will Hughes-Jones, who told Architectural Digest that the new sets include Lady Danbury’s high society home, a gritty printworks shop, and the Bridgertons’ country manor, Aubrey Hall. We can also look forward to seeing Will's gentleman’s club, which the boxer has opened with dodgy winnings from last season.

For more details, we'll have to wait for the new episodes to drop but in the meantime, read on to see some of the best Bridgerton filming locations from season one that you can actually visit now...

1. Rangers House, Greenwich, London

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.

2. 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.

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.

5. Hatfield house, Hertfordshire

Another of the UK's stately homes that were 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 the Netflix film Rebecca.

6. 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 new season? We'll find out very soon when the new episodes of Bridgerton drop on Netflix on Friday, March 25.
