Although a well-kept secret until the end of Bridgerton’s first season, Bath takes centre stage in the sensational Netflix series. At least 14 sites within the historic centre of England’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site have provided scenic backdrops for the television adaptation of Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels. 

Nestled within the rolling hills of the Somerset countryside, Bath flourished during the Georgian era, thanks to the architects John Wood (father and son), who played a crucial role in transforming the Roman-founded spa town into a favoured retreat for the British aristocracy during the Regency era (1811-1820) – and the perfect setting for Bridgerton.

A haven for the upper bourgeoisie

With its rich history, the Georgian city proudly hosts an impressive array of 40 museums, including one dedicated to Jane Austen, the author of Pride and Prejudice, who resided in Bath from 1801 to 1806. In the same street, a second museum pays tribute to another local glory, none other than the creator of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley. For Bridgerton enthusiasts, however, another must-visit is No. 1 Royal Crescent is a captivating museum that intricately recreates the lifestyle of an aristocratic family during the English Regency period.

The familiar façade of the building, crafted by John Wood the Younger in the late 1700s, is a recurring element in the show. Onscreen, No. 1 Royal Crescent serves as the residence for Penelope Featherington and her family. In real life, Prince Frederick, Duke of York, the second son of George III and Queen Charlotte, lived at the very same address, just a few steps away from the Assembly Rooms of Bath. Yet another site that acts as a set for the series produced by Shonda Rhimes, this location served as a longstanding haven for the crème de la crème of 19th-century bourgeoisie, who convened to celebrate under opulent chandeliers during grand social events.

A hotbed of style and gossip

It is within the intimate setting of Gunter’s Tea Shop, the prestigious tea salon that Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset found themselves sharing a cake, in a sizzling scene of seduction. While there indeed existed a Gunter’s Tea Shop in London (where the Bridgerton story is meant to unfold), you might find it challenging to trace its presence in the historic streets of Bath. For a delightful afternoon tea experience in town, it’s best to step into The Abbey Deli, which has its own tale: Located near the renowned Roman baths in the historic heart of the city, this charming eatery has served as the backdrop for Madame Delacroix’s dressmaking boutique, Modiste, one of the “Ton’s” hotbeds of style and gossip.

A leap into the past



A year ago, Dukes Bath gracefully transported itself back in time, with Bridgerton’s carriages aligning at the entrance of this enchanting 17-room boutique hotel during the filming of the third season of the series. The prestigious establishment features a prime location overlooking Great Pulteney Street, Bath’s most impressive Georgian thoroughfare, just a few minutes’ walk from the iconic Pulteney Bridge spanning the river Avon.

Furnished with elegance in the purest style of English Regency, Dukes Bath is also conveniently situated near the Holburne Museum. This former late 18th-century hotel has been transformed into an art museum and notably doubled as the primary residence for the influential Lady Danbury in Bridgerton

Season 3 of the Netflix series is set to air Spring 2024. Another reason for fans to make the pilgrimage to Bath, in search of history, glamour, and other bourgeois extravagances.
