The successful Netflix television series Bridgerton took the world by storm with its romantic depiction of upper society in 19th-century England. Whether viewers swooned from the costumes, actors or music, the filming locations of various estates and palaces served as the focal point for many scenes. For those unable to get enough of Bridgerton or of early 1800s England, these filming locations await anyone wanting to experience the magnificence of these structures in-person.

Ranger’s House, London (Bridgerton house)

Situated along Greenwich Park in southeast London, this early-18th-century house served as the home for many notable figures, such as the Earl of Chesterfield. In the early 1900s, the London County Council bought Ranger’s House, converting the rooms into changing rooms and tea rooms, and transforming the grounds into a bowling green and tennis courts. Today, the property houses the Wernher collection of more than 700 pieces of fine and decorative art, ranging from ancient Greece to the 19th century. The house is open to the public upon purchase of a ticket, which can be bought in advance or in person.


Badminton Estate, Gloucestershire (Duke of Hastings’ home)

Currently home to the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort, Badminton Estate offers a variety of tours of the estate and its grounds. For groups of 15–30 people, private tours of the ground-floor rooms of the estate, the gardens, the Orangery and the church are available. At £30 per person with a minimum group size of 15, guests will witness the house’s architecture, paintings and other artifacts featured throughout the house. Badminton Estate also offers private garden tours, where guests enjoy the grounds around the house with a tour providing in-depth information about the plants and the maintenance of the gardens. The tour begins or ends with tea and cake in the Old Hall. Tours are £20 per person with a minimum group size of 15. To book an estate or garden tour, email [email protected].

Holburne Museum, Bath (exterior of Lady Danbury’s house)

As the city’s first public art gallery, Holburne Museum began its collection in the 19th century and has continued to draw visitors over the years to see the museum’s impressive displays of art. Since reopening in 2011, Holburne Museum features both permanent and temporary exhibitions, visitor facilities and a café. Open daily, tickets are £12.50 per adult. Next to the museum lies Sydney Gardens, a public park that once hosted visitors as far back as the late 18th century.


Wrotham Park, Hertfordshire (Aubrey Hall)

Located just 30 minutes from London, Wrotham Park lies on more than 2,500 acres of green fields and lush trees. While the 18th-century estate mainly hosts large events like weddings, marquees, house events and corporate outside events for more than 100 guests, Wrotham Park offers limited open-house tours every year. Tours book up quickly, and visitors wanting to experience Wrotham Park can monitor tour dates and offerings here.

The Tudor palace offers tickets for £26.10 for access to all of these features within the grounds of the palace.

Time to Unwind

I recently returned from my second annual golf trip to Kiawah Island, where we enjoyed fantastic weather. Upon arrival, the group met for lunch at The Ryder Cup Bar, located at The Ocean Course, one of the top-ranked courses in the country. Luckily, we were not playing that day, as the wind whipped up and brought unscheduled douses of rain. As one of the caddies told me, wind gusts of 35 mph made the course unplayable. But some players braved the conditions as we sat comfortably inside enjoying our first lunch of the trip while chairs cascaded outside and players tried to keep their shots on track.
