Full of decadent dress, raunchy romance and glamorous balls, Netflix’s Bridgerton is now one of the most popular shows of all time.

But while this whimsical drama is set in the competitive world of Regency London, during the season when debutantes are presented to the court, the filming of it actually spanned a lot further than the borders of the M25.

From grand country houses to pretty parklands, here are some of the fancy locations used inBridgerton's first two seasons.

Greenwich, London

One of Britain’s most important Royal Dockyards – thanks to its role in historic events like the Spanish Armada and the Cold War – also made an appearance inBridgerton. Kent’s The Historic Dockyard Chatham, with its genuine Georgian buildings and cobbled streets, was used to portray the somewhat poorer streets of London in the series – like where, in season one,Lady Featherington takes Marina to see the slums – as well as the setting for Simon and Will’s many boxing matches.

The House, which has been the seat of the Earls of Pembroke for over 400 years, was also used as the façade for the Duke of Hastings’ residence, as well as the dining room of Clyvedon Castle. While a third of the house is still private, the rest of the opulent rooms are usually open to the public, making it the ideal location for acultural visit.

Visited by several Kings and Queens throughout the centuries, it’s no surprise Badminton Housein the Gloucestershire countryside was chosen to play a part in Bridgerton. This 17th-century estate was used in the show's first season to film scenes set in the Duke of Hastings’ London home, as well as the parlour and grounds of Clyvedon Castle. While the house is primarily private, Bridgerton fans can book a private group tour of the house and gardens of the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort’s family home.

The last surviving ducal residence (belonging to a duke) and estate in Greater London, Syon Park, also got some screen time. In season one, its very own Print Roomdoubled up as Simon’s father’s study, and the State Dining Room was used for Queen Charlotte’s dinner-time meeting with her husband, King George III. The estate also made a comeback in season two, when The Great Conservatory (a beautiful domed glasshouse) was used as the extravagant setting of Lady Danbury's ball - the very first ball of the season.

Close to Kew Gardens and Richmond Park, the estate’s House is filled with grand neo-classical interiors, a wealth of art, and has 40 acres of gardens designed by ‘Capability’ Brown.

Another exquisite park that features in the series is Stowe Parkin Buckinghamshire, whose scale and beauty has wowed visitors for over 300 years. The parkland was used to depict Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens in the show, with its Temple of Venus providing the glittering backdrop to season one's outdoor Vauxhall Ball (a party we’d very much like to attend!). Follow the paths of Vice, Virtue and Liberty and see what beauty hides behind each twist and turn, or, if you visit in the winter, enjoy the sweeping blanket of delicate snowdrops until late February.

12

Bridgerton filming locations: Leigh Court

Abbots Leigh, Bristol

Over in Bristol, Leigh Court– and in particular its Princes, Ingenue and Crawford Ballrooms – was a key location for many of the party scenes in season one, where characters danced to orchestral covers of some of pop’s favourite anthems. Set in 25 acres of private parkland, this Grade II-listed honey-hued building was chosen for these scenes thanks to its Regency-era features like its elaborate 19th-century ceilings and grand double staircase in the Great Hall. Like a couple of others on our list, Leigh Court is no longer a public attraction (at one time you could pay to see its incredible art collection that comprised Raphael and Michelangelo to name a few) but it can be hired for weddings and events.

13

Bridgerton filming locations: Wrotham Park

Barnet, Hertfordshire

Season two took us out of Mayfair and to the Bridgerton’s ancestral country home, Aubrey Hall. During their time at this Palladian mansion, the family, accompanied by the Sharmas, play their annual game of pall-mall. These eventful (and muddy) outdoor shenanigans were actually filmed in the whopping 300 acres of lush parkland at Wrotham Park, a spot that you may have seen previously in the Kingsman films. While the house is not open to the public, it can be hired out for parties and weddings – we’ll just be here waiting for our invite.

14

Bridgerton filming locations: Hampton Court Palace

East Moseley, London

Hampton Court Palace– the former home of King Henry VIII – plays the role of Queen Charlotte’s St James’s Palace in seasons one and two of Bridgerton. The 16th-century Palace’s exterior is used for establishing shots of the Queen’s residence, while in season two, the Great Staircase, whose walls and ceiling are covered with Renaissance paintings, makes an appearance too. Hampton Court’s Privy Garden also features in the latest season, in the scene where Queen Charlotte shows off her new zebras to Lady Danbury and the Sharma sisters.

Pay a visit to this royal residence in southwest London for your chance to swan through the palace’s grand old halls, Tudor kitchens and 60 acres of gardens, all while learning about the public dramas and privates lives of Henry VIII, his wives and children.

After being de-requisitioned after World War II, 18th-century Basildon Parkwas brought back to life by Lord and Lady Iliffeintime for it to feature as the location for season two’s Featherington Ball. The ball itself was held in the Garden Room and parterre but because filming took place in October, the production design team had to bring in over 5,000 artificial flowers to fill the garden with summer blooms. The National Trust property and grounds are fully open to visitors, meaning you can wander the peaceful trails around its wooded parkland and enjoy picnic spots with wonderful views across Berkshire.

16

Bridgerton filming locations: Petworth House

Petworth, West Sussex

Inspired by the Baroque palaces of Europe, 17th-century Petworth Housein West Sussex comprises grand staterooms filled with art, making it an ideal stand-in for season two’s trip to the art gallery. In this scene, the disgraced Bridgertons and Sharmas make an appearance in an attempt to repair their reputations. Filming took place in the House’s North Gallery, but you are free to explore its many rooms filled with paintings, sculptures and works by artists such as Van Dyck, Turner and Gainsborough. Be sure to explore The Servants’ Quarters to get a glimpse into the life of the people who worked ‘downstairs’ and keep an eye out for the Molyneux globe – dating back to 1592, it’s said to be the earliest English globe in existence.

Windsor, Berkshire

Windsor-castle

Standing in as Battersea Fields and Rotten Row, these royal grounds have a history spanning over 1,000 years and are filled with monuments, ancient forests and beautiful horticultural displays. The Park is free to visit (though there may not be a dashing man on horseback waiting to sweep you off your feet) and includes the iconic three-mile Long Walk leading to Windsor Castle as well as over 500 free-roaming red deer.
