What are the key filming locations in Bridgerton 3?

Basildon Park, Berkshire

Bridgerton not only introduces the new character Lady Tilley Arnold to season three, but also her lavish home – Basildon Park in Berkshire. This 18th-century country house is set on a 400 acres of land and often attracts TV and film productions, having previously been captured in the The Gentleman (2024) and Pride and Prejudice (2005). The estate was originally bought by a man named Francis Sykes in 1771, who demolished the old house and hired architecture John Carr to build the beautiful Palladian structure which remains to this day.

Claydon House, Buckinghamshire

Claydon House makes its debut appearance in season three of Bridgerton. The country house was built by visionary Sir Ralph Verney in the mid 1700s, and was occupied by the Verney family for more than 550 years. In 1957 the Verney’s passed the property over to the National Trust, however continued to reside in in it until 1994. Now, visitors can learn about the family’s history of fluctuating wealth, as well as their connection with the English Civil War and Florence Nightingale. Claydon House is open Thursdays-Mondays with tours of the house and the 170-acre grounds also available.

Osterley Park and House, London

West London’s Osterley Park and House, a National Trust property, appears in season three of Bridgerton as a backdrop of a grand ball (one of many). The beautiful Georgian estate dates back to the 1570s, with several Grade I and Grade II listed buildings on its land. It’s one of London’s last surviving country estates and encompasses more than 350 acres of parkland, farmland and gardens. Over the years, the main property has transformed from a Tudor House to the grand mansion you see today. It was once described by English writer and historian Horace Walpole as the ‘palace of palaces.’

Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire

Blenheim Palace in Woodstock played the part of Queen Charlotte’s residence – Buckingham House – in the Bridgerton spin-off series about the character. The iconic property then reprised its role in series three of Bridgerton, making it the largest country house to appear on the show. It 187-room property certainly feels regal, and has attracted other major productions such as Harry Potter,James Bond and Mission Impossible to film here. The 18th-century palace is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with tours available to the public to explore its State Rooms and grounds.

Other key Bridgerton filming locations

Ranger’s House, Greenwich Park

The Bridgerton residence features prominently in every series of the show. If you don’t know already, this stunning, wisteria-draped house can be found in London’s Greenwich Park – yet the real-life version features far less wisteria than you might imagine. The Palladian mansion and Grade I-listed property is today home to a world-class art collection. More than 700 pieces of work, amassed by 19th-century German businessman Sir Julius Wernher, are now displayed around the building. Ranger’s House is owned by conservation charity English Heritage and can be visited by the public from Wednesday-Sunday.

Old Royal Naval College, London

The Old Royal Naval College has been a popular filming location with many period dramas, including The Crown, Napoleon (2023) and Les Misérables (2012). It has also featured in the Bridgerton series, with the World Heritage Site providing an idyllic setting of Mayfair Market and general shots of the bustling ton, who wonder among the grounds in search of latest gossip from Lady Whistledown. What we haven’t yet seen in the series is the Navy College’s Painted Hall. The Baroque room is dubbed ‘Britain’s Sistine Chapel’, with its frescoes depicting more than 200 figures including kings, queens and mythological creatures. In recent years it has undergone a lengthy restoration project, ensuring the longevity of this masterpiece.

Wilton House, Wiltshire

Wilton House (Alamy)

Although many country homes featured on this list have scenes filmed from the exterior of the property, a lot of scenes inside the Bridgerton character’s fictional homes often filmed elsewhere. One property in particular has played several different residences in the series, including that of the Duke of Hastings, Lady Danbury and Queen Charlotte. Wilton House, near Salisbury, is a Palladian style property built in 1647, and has been the county seat of the Earls of Pembroke for the past 400 years. One of its most extravagant rooms is the Double Cube Room, with the walls adorned with large regal portraits bordered with gold. Eagle-eyed viewers will recognise this as Queen Charlotte’s throne room.


Royal Crescent, Bath (Alamy)

Although the storyline is based in Regency-era London, the real-life locations of many Bridgerton scenes are in fact filmed in Bath. The Royal Crescent, a line of 30 terraced houses shaped in a sweeping curve, offer some of the finest example of Georgian architecture in the country. They are  also where you’ll see many carriage driving scenes in the series, and No. 1 Royal Crescent is the fictional home to the Featherington family. Elsewhere in Bath, the Grade I-listed Holborn Museum which holds a collection of art plays the part of Lady Danbury’s residence.
