The TV adaptation of Julia Quinn’s novels follow the lives of members of the Bridgerton family, as they navigate high society be that scandals or romances.
As well the gripping plots, the show is of course set in some seriously luxurious and opulent homes – and a bulk of the filming was actually done on location throughout the UK, not just in studios.
The city of Bath served as one of the main locations, especially for creating exterior shots. It’s not surprising considering the area’s period architecture, cobbled streets and beautiful surroundings. (The city itself is actually a World Heritage Site as it’s so steeped in history).
The cast and crew were spotted filming at a number of locations across Bath such as No.1 Royal Crescent, the Bath Assembly Rooms and Abbey Green.
Meanwhile, the likes of Trim Street, Beauford Square and Barton Street were also used for shooting exterior scenes, with the areas being transformed thanks to the likes of the period costumes and the horse carts that made their way through the cobbled paths.
It wasn’t just Bath where filming took place.
The cast also headed to film scenes at the spectacular Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, which already boasts impressive TV credentials having served as a setting for the likes of The Crown and the Favourite. In a teaser for the show, the house’s impressive Marble Hall provides the backdrop for a lavish ball.
Other locations used included the Library and the West Garden, according to local media.
Another beautiful stately home that was used for the series was Wilton House near Salisbury. The glamorous home’s Single Cube Room can be seen in the trailer in a scene where Queen Charlotte is sat on her throne.
Like Hatfield House, Wilton House already boasts a number of productions in its filming repertoire including The Crown, Pride & Prejudice and Young Victoria.
Other locations used in the show also include Castle Howard in Yorkshire which film buffs may also recognise from Brideshead Revisited, while the 18th-century landscaped garden Painshill Park and London’s Lancaster House also featured.
