Netflix series, Bridgerton, has been a January TV hit, allowing us to soak up Regency-era London high society fashions and traditions. It’s also adored for the lavish backdrops, which include some of the UK’s most stunning stately homes.

Where Lady Bridgerton resides with her family, this ivy and wisteria-covered red brick Georgian mansion with the smart pillared entrance and elegant gates is actually a museum. It will be open for visitors after the pandemic. Ranger’s House lies on the edge of Greenwich Park in south London and houses a world-class art collection.

In real life, it’s Wilton House in Salisbury, owned by the Earl and Countess of Pembroke and dates back to 1544. It's will be open for day visits, post restrictions, and you might recognise it from other period dramas including Emma, The Crown and Pride & Prejudice.

The gaudily fabulous Featherington’s residence was filmed in a variety of locations, including No1 Royal Crescent, a museum in Bath and Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. The latter is definitely worth a visit, there’s a massive park, restaurant, Stable Yard shops (jewellery, arts and crafts) and experiences too, like hot air ballooning, beekeeping.

You can also take tours of the mansion, including the Chinese bedroom and an opulent chamber with silk wallpaper and canopied bed that was once reserved exclusively for the King of England. It’s also a film star in its own right, with appearances in The Crown, Paddington and King Lear.

Simon and Daphne live in fictional Clyvedon Castle after they’ve wed. Scenes were filmed at Castle Howard in Yorkshire (for the exterior), while the interior shoots took place at North Mymms Park, Wilton House and Badminton House in the Cotswolds, all of which are insanely grand and open for visits.

Wilton House was used for the interiors of four different homes in the series and also served as Buckingham Palace in The Crown.

When Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) meets up with the Duke, Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) on various occasions at their ‘club’, it’s filmed at Lancaster House and The Reform Club – a real life Pall Mall member's club (previous members include Winston Churchill and EM Forster) founded in 1836 and famous as the starting point of Phileas Fogg’s adventure in Jules Verne’s novel Around the World in Eighty Days.

Despite the show being set in London, the city of Bath actually served as a key location for most of the street scenes, which isn’t surprising as it’s home to some of the best Regency architecture in the country, particularly its famous curved Royal Crescent. It’s also where the Modiste dress shop, where everyone bought their made-to-measure ball gowns, was filmed, specifically at Pickled Greens, a cafe in the centre of the city.
