Are you ready for another delightful dose of Regency romance and scandal this spring? Season three of Netflix smash-hit Bridgerton returns in two parts on 16 May and 13 June 2024 respectively, this time following the relationship between Penelope Featherington and her longtime crush Colin Bridgerton, while Lady Whistledown and her troublemaking quill keep us informed of all the juicy gossip. 

The period drama is based on bestselling books by Julia Quinn, produced by Shonda Rhimes (of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal fame), and narrated Gossip Girl-style by none other than Dame Julie Andrews. Most excitingly for us, Bath stood in for eighteenth-century London in much of the first two seasons, with the crew returning to film scenes for the upcoming third season at The Royal Crescent and The Holburne Museum

This makes a trip to Bath one of the best ways to enter the world of Bridgerton in real life. Here are some of the key filming locations you can explore around the city…

Abbey Green

Tucked away behind the Roman Baths, you’ll find the peaceful Abbey Green. Here, The Abbey Deli stands in as the Modiste dress shop in the first two seasons. Filming took place inside and out of the Grade II listed building, which features traditional doubled-fronted bay windows. Today, you can stop by the Deli for a delicious afternoon tea, and browse a wide range of Modiste merchandise, including teas, T-shirts, and more. 

Another part of Abbey Green was also used to stand in for Covent Garden in London.

No.1 Royal Crescent

The exterior of No.1 Royal Crescent is used as the home of the Featherington family. In the series, Lady Featherington devotes her time to navigating her three daughters through the social season to find them suitable husbands. No.1 Royal Crescent is a museum which has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been in the late 1700s. The rooms feature historic furniture and objects that reveal what life was like for Bath’s fashionable residents, both upstairs and downstairs.

The Royal Crescent

One of Bath’s most iconic landmarks makes for an impressive backdrop for filming – you can't miss it in Bridgerton! Built between 1767 and 1775, The Royal Crescent is arranged around a perfect lawn overlooking Royal Victoria Park and forms a sweeping curve of 30 Grade I listed terraced houses.

Bath Street

Bath Street

Bath Street, with its cobblestones and striking line of colonnades down each side, is used for several street scenes in Bridgerton. At the end of Bath Street is the Cross Bath and Thermae Bath Spa. Hence, this area is known as the Spa Quarter, where the water bubbles up from the springs at a temperature of 46 degrees. Unadorned by shop signs and capturing eighteenth-century Bath perfectly, the street definitely lends itself well to filming.

Beauford Square and Trim Street

Beauford Square, used for more street filming, is a square of two-storey cottages built in 1730 to a design by John Strahan. The south side is formed by the original frontage to Theatre Royal Bath, and in the centre was a communal garden. It is now a small rectangular lawn, enclosed with wrought iron railings.

The exterior and interior of a bathroom showroom on Trim Street (with the taps, sinks and toilets out of view!), around the corner from Beauford Square, also features in the series.

Ball room at the Assembly Rooms

The Assembly Rooms

Bridgerton is full of high-society events and lavish balls, where the characters dance and socialise under the watchful eye of 'The Ton.' The Tea Room and Ball Room of the Assembly Rooms make perfect, grand backdrops for the sumptuous ball scenes full of glamorous and vivacious costumes and hairstyles.

Once the social epicentre of Georgian Bath, The Assembly Rooms are currently only open for guided tours. This is due to its owners, the National Trust, creating a new Georgian experience, currently due to open in 2026. Grand and elegant, the Assembly Rooms are home to spectacular, original Whitefriars crystal chandeliers and the largest eighteenth-century room in the city.

The Guildhall in Bath

The Guildhall

The Banqueting Room at the Guildhall was also used for ball scenes in the series. Located in the centre of the city, the Guildhall is an elegant Georgian venue, with grand staircases and elegant plasterwork. The Banqueting Room is a fine, highly decorated room with ornate gilding, historic paintings, and soaring ceilings.

The Holburne Museum

The beautiful Holburne Museum plays the façade of Lady Danbury's opulent abode in the first two seasons, and is due to reprise its role in the third. 

On the impressive approach, via the wide Great Pulteney Street, the building’s elegant exterior and gardens provide a hint of its history and grandeur. The Grade I listed building was originally designed and constructed as a hotel in the late 19th century, but is now home to a permanent collection of decorative and fine art, as well as a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions. 

Edward Street

Making its debut appearance in the show's third season, this picture-perfect residential Georgian street is just steps away from The Holburne Museum, branching off of Great Pulteney Street. Scenes featuring a large group of extras dressed in period costumes, horses, and carriages were shot here on a chilly day in January 2023, with the road surface covered in gravel by the production team to make the backdrop more era-appropriate!

Many of the Edward Street scenes were filmed directly outside the boutique Dukes Hotel on its junction with Great Pulteney Street, making it a compellling candidate for a Bridgerton-inspired stay in Bath
