No. 1 Royal Crescent
The exterior of No. 1 Royal Crescent is used for the home of the Featherington family. In the story Lady Featherington devotes her time to navigating her three daughters through the social season to find them suitable husbands. No. 1 Royal Crescent – due to reopen April 2021- is a museum which has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been in the late 1700's.
One of Bath's most iconic landmarks makes for an impressive back drop for filming, so you will not miss it when it appears in Bridgerton. The crescent - built between 1767 and 1775 - is arranged around a perfect lawn overlooking Royal Victoria Park and forms a sweeping crescent of 30 Grade I listed terraced houses.
With it's cobbled paving and striking line of colonnades running down each side, Bath Street appears in the first trailer for the show and is used for several street scenes. At the bottom of Bath Street lies the Cross Baths and Thermae Bath Spa and this area is known as the Spa quarter of Bath where the water bubbles up from the springs at a temperature of 46 degrees.

Bridgerton promises to be full of high-society events and lavish balls, where the characters dance and socialise under the watchful eye of the entire town. The Tea Room and Ball Room of the Assembly Rooms make a perfect grand backdrop for the sumptuous ball scenes full of glamourous and vivacious costumes and hairstyles.
The Banqueting Room at the Guildhall was also used for ball scenes in the series. Centrally located, 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 exterior of the Holburne Museum was used for filming the entrance to one of the ball scenes in Bridgerton. On the impressive approach to The Holburne Museum, via the grandness of Great Pulteney Street, the building's elegant façade and gardens provide an inkling of its grandeur and history.
