Bridgerton Filming Locations

Hit Netflix series Bridgerton returns to Bath for season three

The highly anticipated smash Regency romance show, Bridgerton, is returning to our screens, featuring a few familiar Bath landmarks.  

Coming back with a double dose, part one of the series is set to air today while fans will have to wait until 13 June to find out how the series ends.  

The new season explores the flourishing romance between the sharp-witted but often overlooked, Penelope Featherington and her previously unrequited love interest, Colin Bridgerton. 

Boasting a star-studded cast, season three promises the return of Gossip Girl-style narrator Dame Julie Andrews, a piping hot plot packed full of twists and turns and iconic Bath-based film sets. 

Bridgerton is one of Bath’s most talked about on-screen appearances. During season one and two residents saw the city transform into eighteenth-century London, with the crew returning last year to turn back time on three Bath landmarks - The Royal Crescent, The Holburne Museum, and Edward Street. 

If you can’t wait to get stuck into another scandalous season, why not see if you recognise these famous locations... 

Edward Street 

The residential Georgian boulevard sits just around the corner from The Holburne Museum; with iron railings and large grid windows, the picturesque townhouses epitomise Georgian elegance and became the backdrop for scenes in season three. 

Last winter, the production team coated the road in gravel and passersby could see groups of extras dressed head to toe Regency-style while horses and carriages trundled along the street.  

The charming Dukes Hotel also plays a starring role in new season, with many of the Edward Street scenes shot directly outside its front door – see if you can spot its famed sash windows and curved exterior!

No.1 Royal Crescent

Home to the beloved Featherington family, No.1 Royal Crescent features heavily in Bridgerton. The impressively restored Georgian townhouse has been transformed into a museum, giving visitors a glimpse into how Bath’s most fashionable residents lived in the 18th century.  

During filming, the museum was used for exterior shots of the front door and surrounding area, and you can catch cast members coming in and out of the house in all three seasons of the show.

The Holburne Museum 

This historic, Grade I listed building was designed in the late 19th century as the Sydney Hotel and became the city's first public art gallery. Now, the building reflects the era’s elegance and history. With carefully pruned gardens and a grand exterior, the Holburne Museum is home to a collection of artworks and plays host to a rolling programme of exhibitors. 

The building acts as Lady Danbury’s extravagant residence in the first two seasons, aptly reflecting her social standing as the queen’s closest and most trusted confidant and is rumoured to be reappearing in season three.

Bath has set the stage for many notable productions over the years, including the highly anticipated live-action adaption of Willy Wonka, featuring Timothée Chalamet, Hollywood hit, Les Misérables, and the cobblestone backdrop to Sherlock Homles’ adventures.
