Take in a fresh whiff of the new ladies in town that are sure to shake up this new season of Bridgerton! We know Anthony has…
In its second season, Netflix’s regency era hit stars Jonathan Bailey returning as the feared and revered Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, Simone Ashley as the supportive eldest Sharma sister Kate, and Charithra Chandran as the younger Sharma sister and the newest “Diamond of the Season” Edwina. Other returning cast members include Nicola Coughlan as the secretive scribbler Penelope Featherington, Luke Thompson as the artistic and witty second eldest Benedict Bridgerton, Luke Newton as the soft-hearted Colin Bridgerton, Phoebe Dynevor as the now-married eldest daughter and mother Daphne Bridgerton, Claudia Jessie as the well-read Eloise Bridgerton, Florence Hunt as the youngest of the Bridgerton family Hyacinth, Ruth Gemmell as the lovely matriarch Lady Violet Bridgerton, Polly Walker as the woman-on-a-mission Lady Portia Featherington, Adjoa Andoh as the residential queen-bee Lady Danbury, and Golda Rosheuvel as calculated gossip Queen Charlotte.
Without giving too much away, this season centers a love-triangle as Anthony begins his search to find his Viscountess, Eloise begins her first social season as a “young lady after a suitable match,” and the hunt for the identity of Lady Whistledown continues.
SPOILERS GALLOPING IN ON THE HORIZON…
The entirety of the filming locations took place all over the United Kingdom.
Every lady introduced into society has to make an appearance in front of the Queen. In Bridgerton, the Queen Catherine’s home is Wilton House, which is located near Salisbury. Wilton House was a constant location throughout Bridgerton season 2. It was also the sight of Eloise’s failed introduction into society when the moment was interrupted by a new Whistledown sheet. Fun Fact: Wilton House is owned by The Earl and Countess Pembroke. It has been in the family for centuries.
WINDSOR GREAT PARK
Windsor Great Park has year-round activities. Visitors can enjoy spring picnics in the illustrious gardens, maybe even get a whiff of the daffodils in Daffodil Valley; Catch the polo tournament in the summer; Go looking for stags during rutting season in fall; Even visit the Savill Building for some early Christmas shopping in winter. This is where Anthony and Kate had their first tension-filled run in via horseback.
The Holburne Museum as a long history of its involvement in slavery that visitors can view on their website. Visitors can also find over 4,000 artifacts from the family’s ancestors in “The Collection” at the museum. It even offers its services as a wedding venue. Throughout Bridgerton seasons, this museum played as the home of the fabulous Lady Danbury and was the Sharma’s home for this season.
RANGER’S HOUSE and NO.1 ROYAL CRESCENT
The Ranger’s House belonged to the Bridgerton family and No. 1 Royal Crescent was home to the Featherington family, according to Capitalfm.com. Under the care of English Heritage, Ranger’s House is a marvelous Georgian villa that has maintained its over 700 artworks and artifacts. This is also known to many as the Bridgerton family home in London, just adjacent to Greenwich Park. The Royal Crescent is a building complex that has locations in Somerset, England, and Bath. However, the No. 1 Royal Crescent is a fashionably restored museum in Bath. It features historical objects and furniture to depict how life during the late 1700s would look like, giving visitors a chance to travel back in time.
THE GREAT CONSERVATORY AT SYON PARK
This glasshouse was home to the site of the Sharma’s very first seasonal ball. The Great Conservatory was restored between 1986 and 1987 from its nineteenth century original model. It is populated with exotic plants and flowers from all over the world. This is also where Anthony and Kate had a battle of wits outside the festivities of the ball.
ROYAL COUNTY OF BERKSHIRE POLO CLUB
Located near Windsor, this club is the pinnacle polo club-slash-event space. Worried that your horse won’t enjoy the luxuries of the upper-class? This club has the ability to accommodate over 200 horses. They also have two tennis courts, a pavilion, club house, and even an exclusive polo academy. The club was featured for an entire episode of Bridgerton called, “Off To The Races,” where Kate was doing her absolute best to keep Anthony from sniffing around her younger sister.
Wrotham Park is where the Bridgerton’s country estate Aubrey Hall is located. The Palladian mansion was left to the present Robert Byng to live in and manage since 1991 and is not open to overnight visitors. The estate can be used for events such as weddings, corporate events, and any launches of sorts. Plus, the views Benedict brought up to Anthony fill the lungs with the freshest air that the 2,500-acre property has to offer.
HAMPTON COURT PALACE
This baroque-styled court is where Eloise met (and pestered) Theo Sharpe (played by Calam Lynch), a printer’s assistant about her quest to find Lady Whistledown. Buying a ticket grants you access to the 60 acres of outdoor spaces and illustrious gardens, as well as William III’s apartments and galleries containing works of art by artists such as Rembrandt, van Dyck and more.
JAMES CHURCH PICCADILLY
Including Sunday Service, the church is open to all in-person or online. This is where the wedding between Anthony and Edwina was supposed to happen. Currently, they are advertising to patrons that Holy Week is beginning April 12 in preparation for Easter Sunday. The church also holds performances, such as the Regency String Quartet on April 21st.
WILTON’S MUSIC HALL
Eloise is spotted sneaking into a protest and meeting up with Theo again at the Wilton’s Music Hall. The hall has many productions in the works for the upcoming weeks, such as, Dead Poets Live on April 11-12, Morgan & West: Unbelievable Science on April 13, even Buffy Revamped, a rendition of the popular 90s show “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” from April 19-23.
This military training facility was home to the failed Bridgerton ball, a truly scandalous one at that after Lady Whistledown’s sheet. The RAF is dedicated to training and educating a range of unit specialties. It is home to about 2,100 personnel being the largest station out of all RAF stations.
What’s a Bridgerton season finale without a ball? Won’t know because the Featherington’s threw one this time. The Basildon Park home was the site of the Featherington Ball, where our main couple finally came together after some agonizingly long, tension-filled stares. After Lord and Lady IIiffe restored and lived in the park for 25 years, the home was given to the National Trust in 1978.
