Where Was Bridgerton Season 3 Filmed?

As with seasons one and two, Bridgerton season three was mainly filmed in London, as well as at multiple locations across the UK. However, we can expect to see some new destinations on screen come May, when part one of the season premieres. ‘We’re trying to broaden our locations, so that we aren’t going to the same old places every season,’ locations manager Tony Hood says. ‘So we were on the hunt looking for bigger places, instead of trying to make the same old places look a little bit different.’

Don’t worry: many fan-favourite settings will return, including Wilton House (where the Queen’s stately rooms are filmed), and some spots you might recognise from Queen Charlotte, including Blenheim Palace. A brand new spot to the universe is the gorgeous Osterley Park and House, which we can’t wait to see on the small screen. ‘Those locations make a big statement,’ says Hood, ‘and that’s exactly what we wanted.’

Bath

We’re naturally back in Bath for Bridgerton season three, with the iconic Royal Crescent providing exteriors for Mayfair, the Featheringtons’ abode, carriage drive-bys and Penelope’s window. When the series visits Grosvenor Square and Regency Street, we’re actually on Bath’s Edward and Vane Street. Plus, when we visit Lady Danbury’s house, we’re actually looking at Bath’s beautiful Holburne Museum.

Visit: You can find the Royal Crescent at Bath BA1 2LX, and The Holburne Museum at Great Pulteney St, Bathwick, Bath BA2 4DB. holburne.org

Claydon House, Buckingham

This new-for-season-three filming location will appear in the second half of the series, released on 13 June – but our lips are sealed with regards to where we will see it. A National Trust property, expect splendid eighteenth-century quintessentially English interiors surrounded by rolling countryside; apt for Bridgerton, then.

Squerryes Court, Sevenoaks

New for Bridgerton season three, this lush filming location is one of the first settings we will see when part one is released, backdropping a garden party in the first episode. ‘The gardens were lovely and framed the shots very nicely,’ Hood explains. ‘And it’s got the usual Bridgerton tongue, with all the gossip flying around the garden.’ We’re ready to delve right back into the ton.

Visit: Goodley Stock Rd, Westerham TN16 1SJ. squerryes.co.uk

Grimsthorpe Castle, Lincolnshire

Lord Hawkins is another new character in Bridgerton season three, and Grimsthorpe Castle is the filming location for his home. An eccentric man, he is all about inventions – a bit like George in Queen Charlotte. ‘We had to bring in changes that weren’t typical of a Regency house,’ Hood says. ‘We reasoned that Hawkins would have gone for something a little bit strange.’

Basildon Park, Berkshire

This beautiful Berkshire country house has previously appeared in Bridgerton for scenes in the Featherington family’s garden – but it plays a larger role in Bridgerton season three. ‘This season, we’ve gone more inside Basildon because it has fantastic interiors, it has an unbelievable staircase that just looks fabulous,’ Hood says.

Basildon Park is the home of a new-for-season-three character, wealthy widow Lady Tilley Arnold. ‘Tilley lives in the central town and doesn’t want to be in amongst the normal scene of the ton,’ says Hood, ‘but she is obviously well-to-do, with an estate of her own, and she runs it very well.’

Blenheim Palace in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story

Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire

This iconic British palace is steeped in history, and first appeared in the Bridgerton-verse in Queen Charlotte as Buckingham House (now known as Buckingham Palace). However, season three marks the first time this filming location will appear in Bridgerton, with Hood a huge fan of Blenheim Palace’s ‘wow’ factor. ‘It just gives you the architectural gravitas of royalty,’ he says. ‘The history’s there – and it’s real history. It’s not us just making it up; there’s real, proper history baked into the location.

‘If you look just in London at Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Hampton Court Palace – all those palaces were owned by the royal family,’ Hood adds. ‘So we are trying to expand that part of Bridgerton. Blenheim was used quite heavily in Queen Charlotte, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s owned by the Duke of Marlborough. It has been in the family for years and years, and it’s lovely. Huge place. Absolutely ginormous.’

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace, Richmond

This fan favourite filming location will return in Bridgerton season three, playing host to a glamorous ball. However, Hampton Court Palace actually crops up in a lot of Bridgerton as a catch-all location for supplementary shots. As Hood describes, the Palace is ‘very square, very neat, very Regency’. Tick, tick, tick.

Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

This familiar Bridgerton filming location returns for season three, providing the setting for Mayfair Market as well as additional shots of the bustling ton.

Osterley Park & House, Hounslow

This gorgeous setting plays host to an outdoor ball in Bridgerton season three, with Hood immediately struck by the unique quadrangle in the middle of the structure. On filming there, Hood says, ‘it was very hot. But once we got into the evening and started shooting the night scenes, it was absolutely fine and dandy. Osterley was a new one for us, and it was great.’

Visit: Jersey Rd, Isleworth TW7 4RB. nationaltrust.org.uk

Luton Hoo Estate, Luton

This country estate also appears across Bridgerton seasons in different contexts, thanks to its classic country home, flower-filled garden and sweep of countryside. In season three, it plays the exterior of the printing press, as well as the Bridgerton family garden.

Painshill Park, Surrey

Painshill Park first appeared in season one of Bridgerton, serving as the backdrop for a Featherington family picnic, some courting, and that scene on the bridge with Daphne and Simon in season one. It makes a reappearance in season three thanks to new character and invention enthusiast Lord Hawkins, who is working to prove that flight is possible with hot air balloons. ‘It’s a fantastic valley next to a lake, which is a great big bowl where we can throw a camera around 360 degrees,’ Hood explains. ‘There’s no modernity there. It works very, very well… And we get to see Colin be the hero of the day.’ Hint, hint.

Wrest Park, Bedfordshire

Wrest Park has appeared in Bridgerton before, but this time it is home to the Fuller family. The real 18th century mansion is truly magnificent, set within 90 acres of gardens and chock full of elegant rooms – perfect for a Regency drama.

Rangers House, London

A solid fan-favourite, the Bridgerton family house is back for season three, complete with wisteria, of course. ‘Nowadays, people just turn up, tie wisteria to the front, come out into their car in full costume, go and get a couple of selfies, and done,’ says Hood. ‘So in fact we’ve actually helped them by putting up the wisteria again.’

Kingston Bagpuize House, Oxfordshire

This filming location is also new for Bridgerton season three – but we can’t tell you when or why you will see it (just yet). Let’s just say it’s a very nice country home set amid acres of land, and you might recognise it from other dramas such as Emma (2020), Downton Abbey and Tortoise in Love (2012).

RAF Halton, Buckinghamshire

When it comes to the interior of the Bridgerton family home, we’re actually looking at RAF Halton, a Royal Air Force station home to approximately 2,100 personnel. It’s not one we can visit at the moment, but – though it has been in use since WW1 – RAF Halton is due to close by the end of 2027, so who knows if this may change in the future.

Hannah Dodd, who plays Francesca Bridgerton and has a larger role this season, says on filming: ‘Our sets are incredible, and some of the locations we’ve got to film in are absolutely unbelievable, absolutely incredible. For me, these are iconic parts of the show – I’ve watched them before ,and stepping onto them is quite a surreal experience. But they definitely help because everywhere you look, it feels period appropriate, which can really help inspire you and what you do within the scene.’

Bridgerton

When the eligible women of the ton are presented to Queen Charlotte at the beginning of each season of Bridgerton, we are actually looking at the interiors of Wilton House, Wiltshire. (Bridgerton ep 101 © Netflix)

Wilton House, Wiltshire

A familiar Bridgerton setting, the team shoots at Wilton House two to three times per season – and season three is no different. ‘It’s the Queen’s world,’ says Hood. ‘We love it. Can’t go wrong. That’s where the Queen does most of her chit-chatting with Lady Danbury. Most of her scheming goes on there. The girls are always presented to the Queen at the start of the season there, and that’s always a major function of the place at the start of the season, so it’s one of our favourites.’

Golda Rosheuvel, who plays Queen Charlotte in Bridgerton, adds: ‘I had an experience in season one, with going to Wilton House down in Salisbury. I walked into that room in Wilton and I completely understood what I had to do and who Charlotte was. It was a really extraordinary experience and I’ve never really had that before, where you walk into somewhere and you totally and utterly get it – you understand where you are, the environment, and who this person is that you’re playing.

‘Now Wilton is my favourite place to film,’ says Golda. ‘Every time I’m there, it feels like home. It helps that the family actually lives there, so there’s this real sense of home amongst these amazing, beautiful rooms with extraordinary paintings. Also, to know that Charlotte actually stayed there at one time. We have filmed in her bedroom, where she and George stayed on their way to Scotland, so that has a really beautiful energy about it for me, and it is my favourite place to film.’

Woburn Walk, Bloomsbury

In Bridgerton season two, modiste Genevieve Delacroix entered into a business agreement with none other than Lady Whistledown – and business is now booming. As a result, her modiste business has a whole new shop for season three, and production had to find a new location for filming. The interiors are filmed on a set, but the exteriors had to be found somewhere in real life to create an authentic Regency Street with other shops beside Delacroix’s – and Woburn Walk was the final choice.

Sadly, if you’re looking to stroll down Woburn Walk/Regency Street and do a spot of shopping for yourself, it’ll look very different than it does in Bridgerton: ‘We don’t do anything small in Bridgerton, so we changed the whole street,’ explains Hood. ‘We occupied all 16 shop fronts on the whole walkway. It’s very close to Russell Square in central London, so it’s a busy area, which was challenging, but very worth it in the end. We’re really showing Genevieve’s success.’

Visit: You can find Woburn Walk at London WC1H 0JL. It is a pedestrianised street very close to Euston Station, home to a string of pretty shops, including Halfpenny London and cafes with tables and chairs in the street.

North Mymms Park, Hertfordshire

Wondering where the gentlemen’s private club is? Called White’s, this club is based on a real London gentlemen’s club, which dates back to 1693. Filming, however, took place at North Mymms Park.
