As viewers are taken back to the Regency era in the third season of Bridgerton, makers of the Netflix series have revealed the filming locations — both old and new.

Here, Tony Hood, the locations leader behind all three seasons of Bridgerton as well as Queen Charlotte, walks us through the stunning locations across the third season — from familiar haunts to brand new ballrooms.

“We’re trying to broaden our locations, so that we aren't going to the same old places every season,” says Hood. “So we were on the hunt looking for bigger places, instead of trying to make the same old places look a little bit different.”

Some familiar settings do make an appearance, such as the Queen’s stately rooms at Wilton House, but the team also travelled to new locations such as Osterley Park and House, as well as Blenheim Palace.

Blenheim Palace was seen in Queen Charlotte but is a brand new Bridgerton setting to be explored.

“Those locations make a big statement,” says Hood, “and that’s exactly what we wanted.”

Showrunner Jess Brownell adds: "This season we're returning to a lot of our iconic stages, sets, and locations. You'll see some great Rotten Row set pieces.

"We'll be at Wilton House, which functions as Queen Charlotte’s world for us; I love that giant presentation room where all the debutantes debut. And then there are some new locations as well.

"We shot a ball at Osterley Park, and another one at Hampton Court. And the thing that's been really interesting is that there are only so many National Trust sites and great houses in Britain, and we're getting to the point where we've shot in almost every single one of them, and they're all really identifiable.

"We're having to travel further and further afield to get some of these
locations, but it makes it like summer camp with the crew. It’s fun."

Part 1 of Bridgerton season 3 – episodes 1 to 4 – can be streamed on Netflix from May 16, with episode 5 to 8, part 2 of the new series, available from June 13.

Bridgerton season 3 filming locations

Here's a closer look at the major filming locations of the hit Netflix period drama, including ones in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.


Key Scenes: Tilley’s House (Interior) / Featherington House Garden (Exterior)

Used previously for the Featherington family’s garden, Basildon Park in Berkshire serves as the home for a brand new character this season: Lady Tilley Arnold, Benedict’s new love interest.

A wealthy widow, Basildon provided a perfect setting for the headstrong, independent Tilley.

“This season, we’ve gone more inside Basildon because it has fantastic interiors, it has an unbelievable staircase that just looks fabulous,” Hood says.

“Tilley lives in the central town and doesn't want to be in amongst the normal scene of the Ton, but she is obviously well-to-do, with an estate of her own, and
she runs it very well.”


Several locations filmed in Bath provide stunning backdrops across this season.

The Royal Crescent provides exteriors of Mayfair, the Featheringtons’ home, carriage drive-bys, and Penelope’s window.

Edward and Vane Street illustrates exteriors of Grosvenor Square, Regency Street, and key shots of the Cowpers’ carriage.

And Holburne Museum returns as the instantly recognisable exterior of Lady Danbury’s estate for the Four Seasons Ball.



Key Scenes: Hawkins Hot Air Balloon Event (Episode 3) / Buckingham House

A key location in the Bridgerton-verse first introduced in Queen Charlotte, this season marks the first time Blenheim Palace appears in Bridgerton specifically.

As a true historic location, Blenheim has what Hood calls the “wow” factor.

“It just gives you the architectural gravitas of royalty. 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.”

In the context of Bridgerton, Blenheim is meant to expand Queen Charlotte’s world.

“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. 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.”



Key Scenes: Innovations Ball (Episode 3) / Hawkins House (Interior & Exterior)

Lord Hawkins, an eccentric and innovative new character, is all about inventions.

“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.

"It’s where we shot the Innovations Ball, which was fantastic, and we had a great time up there.”


Key Scenes: Queen’s Ballet and Ball (Episode 4)

Returning favourite location Hampton Court Palace is the backdrop for this season’s Greek myth ballet and Queen’s Ball in Episode 4, when Colin chases Penelope out of the festivities.

The space, which Hood describes as “very square, very neat, very Regency,” also worked as a catch-all location for supplementary shots across the season.



Key Scenes: Alice and Will Mondrich’s Kent Estate

The brand new Bridgerton setting for Alice and Will’s upgraded Kent Estate, Kingston Bagpuize provided Hood a “lovely, authentic” location.

Hood explains: “You can see that the furnace has been used, the dining table has been used, it has a lived-in quality that felt very much like a home. It’s a great


Key Scenes: Full Moon Ball (Episode 2)

The setting for the ethereal Full Moon Ball, Hood and his team were drawn to Osterley’s square build, with a stunning quadrangle in the middle of the structure.

Osterley provided the perfect setting for a summer’s eve ball, filmed partially outside, with a glowing moon high above.

“It was very hot,” Hood recalls. “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.”


Key Scenes: Hawkins Hot Air Balloon Event

Previously seen in season one of Bridgerton as the backdrop for a Featherington picnic, Painshill serves as the setting for Hawkins’ hot air balloon demonstration.

“In this scene, our man Hawkins is trying to prove that flight is possible with his hot air balloon, and all the time the rest of the Ton is doing the usual promenade. And it's a fantastic valley next to a lake, which is a great big bowl where we can throw a camera around 360 degrees.

"There's no modernity there. It works very, very well. It's a huge operation to get cranes in and things to keep the balloon in the air, but it's a great scene — and we get to see Colin be the hero of the day.”


Key Scenes: Bridgerton House (Exterior)

The returning setting has become a fan-favourite.

“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. So in fact we've actually helped them by putting up the wisteria again.”

Additionally, RAF Halton serves as the setting for the interior of the iconic Bridgerton abode.



Key Scenes: Garden Party / Exterior of Livingston Estate (Episode 1)

Another new location for the Bridgerton team, Squerryes Court provided the lush backdrop for the garden party scene in Episode 1 after the ladies’ presentation to Queen Charlotte.

“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.”



Key Scenes: St James’s Palace (Interior and Exterior) / Presentation Room / Buckingham House

Another  familiar returning setting, Wilton House has come to represent everything Queen Charlotte, and the team shoots there two to three times per season.

Hood explains: “It’s the Queen's world. 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.”



Key Scenes: Modiste (Exterior) / Regency Street

To show how much Genevieve Delacroix’s modiste business has boomed since entering into her business agreement with Lady Whistledown, the team sought a new exterior location for the shop and landed on Woburn Walk in London.

The shop’s interiors were shot on stage, but the exterior was practically built
— along with a whole row of picturesque Regency Street shop fronts.

“We don't do anything small in Bridgerton,” says Hood, “so we changed the whole street. 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.”


Key Scenes: Fuller Home (Interior) / Rotten Row (Exterior)

Another returning location, Wrest Park in Bedfordshire is the location for the Fullers’ home this season, as well as the exterior of Rotten Row.



  1. The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich is a returning location that provides the setting for Mayfair Market and some additional shots of the bustling Ton.
  2. The Luton Hoo Estate, situated near Luton and Harpenden, is the setting for multiple locations, including the exterior of the printing press and the Bridgerton garden.
  3. North Mymms Park in Hertfordshire shows us the interior of White’s, the oldest gentlemen’s club in London.
  4. Chiswick House provides church and carriage shots.
