If you’re anything like us, then you have binged the latest season of Bridgerton on Netflix and are feeling the burn or at the very least, dreaming of a time of balls and courting! Recently, Amanda our managing editor of Fat Girls Guide attended the Secret Cinema Bridgerton Ball experience in London and she had a ball (pun intended). It got us thinking if we can’t have a Duke or Viscount to lust over, we can at least visit the stunning locations in real life. From grand country houses to pretty countryside, here are our four top Bridgerton locations that are a must for your next visit to the United Kingdom:
Ranger’s House, Greenwich, London

If you’ve fallen in love with the purple wisteria on the exterior of the Bridgerton family’s mansion then a trip to Greenwich is needed. The Bridgerton home exterior is none other than Ranger’s House. This Georgian villa was actually inhabited by King George III’s sister, Princess Augusta. In today’s world, the stunning residence is run by English Heritage and houses a world-class art collection, including medieval sculptures, ornate jewellery and fine French tapestries.
Royal Crescent, Bath, Somerset
The Featherington’s house is shot in the iconic Royal Crescent in Bath. This impressive landmark forms a sweeping crescent of 30 Grade 1-listed terrace houses and is lauded as one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture anywhere in the UK. If you do go to Bath, ensure to visit Sally Lunn’s for her famous buns and book a tour of the famous Roman Baths too!
Castle Howard York, North Yorkshire
You might have missed this spectacular house as you might have been more focused on the actions of Duke and Daphne…😉 But in season one, after Simon and Daphne’s wedding, the couple moves into the fictional Clyvedon Castle was actually filmed at Castle Howard, in the heart of Yorkshire. This stately home took over 100 years to complete! You can take a tour of the Castle and its treasure trove of inspiring architecture, fanciful stories and tranquil gardens.
Windsor Great Park , Windsor, Berkshire
At the beginning of season two, we see Anthony Bridgerton chasing a mystery woman on a horse through fields and trees – well, this lush, green woodland is none other than Windsor Great Park. 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 and includes the iconic three-mile Long Walk leading to Windsor Castle as well as over 500 free-roaming red deer. While you shouldn’t get too close, you’ll find that the deer are so used to humans that they’ll happily pose for a picture!
