With Bridgerton back on our screens, there’s no better time to visit the heritage city of Bath, filming location for many of the Regency drama’s scenes. Here are the Bridgerton filming locations in the city you can visit…

Words by Natasha Foges

With its cobbled streets and honey-coloured buildings, beautiful Bath is the perfect location for Regency romp Bridgerton. The city is the TV hit’s core filming location, standing in for the streets of Regency London, with multiple sites across town appearing on screen. When filming is taking place, locals have become used to seeing the town’s streets fill with actors in stunning Regency costumes, accompanied by horses and carriages.

No.1 Royal Crescent, Bath

As fans of the series will know, the Featheringtons and the Bridgertons live in Mayfair in London rather than Bath. The main challenge for the production team was to find their homes. For the flashier Featheringtons, the location was obvious: No 1 Royal Crescent, a grand building crowning a row of 30 terraced houses that make up an unparalleled example of Palladian architecture in the city. The Crescent, designed by the elder and younger John Woods, was completed in the 1770s – about 50 years before Bridgerton was set – and was (and still is) Bath’s grandest address. This should be your first stop on your Bridgerton filming locations tour. 

Today, No 1 is an interactive museum that has been decorated just as the building might have been back then, with glittering chandeliers, silverware in the dining room and a harpsichord in the withdrawing room. The rooms you see on screen, though, are just a faithful recreation: most of the show’s interiors were sets.

Holburne Museum of Art

The exterior of Lady Danbury’s home is just a 20-minute walk from the Royal Crescent, at the end of Great Pulteney Street. Today, this is the Holburne Museum of Art, holding a collection of more than 4,000 objects, from bronze sculptures to Dutch landscapes, many donated by Sir William Holburne, a naval officer, who lived during the Regency era. At the time of Bridgerton, the building was the Sydney Hotel, attached to the new Sydney pleasure gardens which had a maze, grotto and model village. The hotel boasted card rooms and a ballroom, and held public breakfasts attended by Jane Austen.

Bath Assembly Rooms

Lady Danbury’s ball, when Simon and Daphne first meet in season one, was filmed at the tearoom in the Bath Assembly Rooms, a 15-minute walk away. In Regency times, this was the place for music and dancing. The building was designed by John Wood the Younger and featured Corinthian columns, Vitruvian scrolls and crystal chandeliers. The Assembly Rooms are in the midst of an exciting renovation project to create a new Georgian experience due to open in 2026. In the meantime, tours of the ground floor run by the National Trust take you through the Ball Room, Great Octagon, Tea Room and Card Room.

 Abbey Green

The Bridgertons and Featheringtons turned to Madame Genevieve Delacroix, seamstress at Modiste, the popular dress shop in the show, for all-important fashion advice, in the first season of Bridgerton. You can see the building at 2 Abbey Street, in cobbled Abbey Green, built in the 17th century to form a walled courtyard to Bath Abbey. Now it’s the Abbey Deli, where you can pick up Bridgerton-inspired merchandise and take afternoon tea.

Trim Street

Simon and Daphne drank their tea at Gunter’s Tea Shop, five minutes’ walk away, at 12 Trim Street, which is now a hairdresser’s. Gunter’s was a real tearoom in Regency London, at Berkeley Square, known for its ice cream. If you fancy a Regency-style sweet treat, head to the Pump Room adjoining the Roman Baths. The who’s who of Regency England flocked to this elegant building, where afternoon tea, accompanied by tinkling live piano, is an indulgent treat.

Where to stay in Bath

Planning a Regency-style stay in Bath? Book a room at the Hotel Indigo Bath – the perfect place to live out your Bridgerton fantasies. Set in a row of Georgian golden-stone townhouses in the centre of town, it certainly looks the part, while the interiors are imbued with a very Bridgerton-like whimsy. Humorous touches bring warmth and colour to the rooms, from playful portraits on the walls to fun recurring motifs of playing cards and city skylines. The luxurious bedrooms would please even the most exacting of high-society Regency guests, and the on-site bar and restaurant are decorated with the same Bridgerton-style decadence.
