Location scouting: Queen Charlotte’s Buckingham House & Kew Palace in the ‘Bridgerton’ spin-off

Much like the original Bridgerton series, Queen Charlotte relies heavily on spectacular palaces and sprawling historic estates to recreate the opulence of times long past.

From Queen Charlotte’s palace to King George’s Kew House, to the already familiar Danbury Estate, every property featured in the Bridgerton spin-off is a piece of real estate eye candy.

So naturally, we had to track them down and see which real-life estates served as filming locations for Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.

Staying true to historic facts, the main royal residence on the show is the Buckingham House — which didn’t get its ‘Palace’ moniker until later on.

However, the Netflix series did not film scenes on location at the real Buckingham Palace in London.

To recreate the grandeur of the Queen's official London residence, the crew turned to other magnificent locations, a central one being Blenheim Palace.

One of England’s largest houses, the Oxfordshire estate is best known as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.

Built between 1705 and 1722, Blenheim Palace is one of England’s largest houses and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Standing in for the king’s Kew Palace in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is the stately Belton House in Lincolnshire, England.

For three hundred years, Belton House was the seat of the Brownlow and Cust family, and its history dates all the way back to the late 1600s.

To this day, the historic Belton House is considered to be the quintessential English country house, with its  façade said to have inspired the modern British motorway signs which give directions to stately homes.

However, scenes showing the king’s conservatory were filmed elsewhere, at the Waddesdon Manor, a country house in the village of Waddesdon in Buckinghamshire, England.
