Set against the backdrop of Regency-era England, the period drama based on Julia Quinn’s novels is full of opulent mansions and palatial abodes.
In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking they're too beautiful to be true. But quite a few real-life settings were used to film the Netflix show (some home to actual royals).
The red brick Georgian house of the Bridgerton family — framed by ivy and wisteria vines — is exactly what you’d expect a viscount’s home to look like.
In reality, the building used to film the scenes of Anthony and Daphne’s house is actually a museum.
Built in 1723, it's known as the Ranger’s House and is home to a world-class art collection.
The 2nd season of Bridgerton introduces quite a few new characters. But the new addition that stole our hearts is the country estate of the Bridgerton family, Aubrey Hall.
The Bridgerton ancestral estate is reminiscent of the viscount family’s house in London, with vining plants framing its façade.
Standing in as Aubrey Hall in the hit Netflix series Bridgerton is Wrotham Park, a neo-Palladian English country house in Hertfordshire, UK.
Wrotham Park’s has also been featured as the interior of Buckingham Palace in the Downton Abbey movie. Other movie/TV credits include The Crown, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and Kingsman.
As the 2nd season gives Lady Danbury a more prominent role, her beautiful home takes center stage too.
Two locations were used to film scenes that took place on Lady Danbury’s estate: the Holburne Museum in Bath was used for exterior shots,
while the ball scenes were filmed at the Conservatory of Syon Park — the 140-acre garden of Syon House, the London home of the Duke of Northumberland.
If we’re talking luxury, opulence, and over-the-top estates, the Bridgerton palace takes the crown - pun intended.
The Queen’s palace was carefully picked to eclipse all the other estates featured on the show. So the producers wanted a real-life royal palace.
Standing in for the royal residence is Hampton Court Palace, a real palace that dates back to 1514, when it was built for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the chief minister of King Henry VIII.
Minister Wolsey fell from favor with the king, and sought to regain his stature by gifting his sprawling residence to King Henry. It is still owned by the royal family today.
