BRIDGERTON 3 PENELOPE

Hampton Court Palace, Richmond

Hampton Court Palace has long been associated with British royalty, famously serving as the home of King Henry VIII. This stunning palace has been a backdrop for many pivotal Bridgerton scenes, including the debutantes’ presentation before Queen Charlotte and Eloise’s intriguing meetings with Theo Sharpe. The palace gardens, designed by Capability Brown, also doubled as various Bridgerton gardens, such as Buckingham and Danbury House. Fun fact: it’s said that Hampton Court is haunted by the ghost of Catherine Howard, Henry VIII’s fifth wife!

How to get there: Take a South Western Railway train from London Waterloo to Hampton Court. The palace is a short walk from the station.

 

St. James’s Church, Piccadilly

St. James’s Church, designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century, set the stage for the dramatic wedding scene between Anthony Bridgerton and Edwina Sharma in Season 2. This beautiful church is situated near Piccadilly, in front of The Dilly hotel and near the BAFTA headquarters. Its rich history includes surviving the Great Fire of London and being a refuge for Huguenot refugees in the 17th century. This is one of my favourite Bridgerton filming locations as I bump into it very often.

 

How to get there: Take the Piccadilly Line to Piccadilly Circus or the Bakerloo Line to Charing Cross, both a short walk from the church.

 

Windsor Great Park, Berkshire

For those who swooned over the romantic horseback scenes between Anthony and Kate in Season 2, Windsor Great Park is the place to visit. This expansive park offers lush landscapes and scenic views, perfect for a leisurely day out. Historically, Windsor Great Park has been a royal hunting ground since the time of William the Conqueror. Today, it is home to the famous Long Walk, a straight path that stretches for almost three miles.

How to get there: Take a train from London Paddington to Windsor & Eton Central, then a short taxi ride to the park.

Featured in Season 3 for various church and carriage shots, Chiswick House is a beautiful example of Palladian architecture. Built in the early 18th century by Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington, it was inspired by the classical architecture of Italy. The surrounding gardens, designed by William Kent, are considered the birthplace of the English landscape garden.

How to get there: Take the District Line to Turnham Green station, followed by a pleasant 20-minute walk.

 

Lancaster House, London

In Season 1, Lancaster House provided the regal setting for Charlotte’s heartfelt conversation with Edwina in the royal jewel room, following King George III’s dramatic appearance. Located near Buckingham Palace, Lancaster House has hosted numerous significant events, including the founding meeting of the United Nations. Queen Victoria once remarked that it was “quite the most beautiful private house in London.”

How to get there: Take the Jubilee or Piccadilly Line to Green Park station; Lancaster House is a short walk from there.

Serving as the exterior of the Bridgerton House in Season 2, Ranger’s House is a Palladian-style mansion located in Greenwich. Originally built in the early 18th century, it has been home to various notable residents, including the Rangers of Greenwich Park. Today, it houses the Wernher Collection, a spectacular assortment of medieval and Renaissance art.

How to get there: Take the DLR to Greenwich station, then a 15-minute walk through Greenwich Park.

 

Osterley Park and House, London

This location hosted the glamorous ball scene in Episode 2 of Season 2. Osterley Park and House, designed by Robert Adam in the 18th century, offers a glimpse into the grandeur of Regency-era events with its stunning interiors and vast gardens. The estate originally belonged to the Child banking family, and Adam’s neoclassical designs turned it into a showcase of opulence.
