“Dearest reader, the time has come to place our bets for the upcoming virtual travel season”.
If the Regency-era period dramas fascinate you and you enjoy Jane Austen novels, Netflix’s Bridgerton would be right up your street. As one of the most anticipated shows of 2020, Bridgerton has become the current favoured topic of conversation of Netflix loyalists.
A cerebral and sparkly period piece, it is adapted from Julia Quinn’s novels set in London’s Ton. With a voiceover by Julie Andrews (remember Sound of Music?), the story is about eight alphabetically named siblings who are on the quest for love and purpose in life, while living amid the aristocracy of 1813 London.
While the story of the first season is set primarily in London, much of its locations were in Bath, and New York. Let’s promenade through 9 filming locations from Bridgerton that you can visit from the comfort of your living room. While you can binge-watch Regency-era tropes from the comfort of your home, you can also enjoy virtual tours to your favourite stately homes and grand palaces from the show, whether it’s a virtual tour through the Painshill Park or a digital walk across the cobbled spa quarter of Bath Street.
