Did you know that you can actually step into the enchanting world of Bridgerton, where the glitz and glamour of Regency-era England come alive, in real life?

The hit Netflix series has captivated audiences worldwide with its scandalous storylines, dazzling costumes, and of course, the breathtaking mansions that serve as the backdrop for the show's most memorable moments. 

From the grand ballrooms to the meticulously manicured gardens, these stately homes are as much a part of the show's allure as the characters themselves. 

Join us as we take a closer look at the magnificent estates that bring the world of Bridgerton to life (and how much they’re actually worth).

The Bridgerton Residence - Ranger's House

The iconic Bridgerton residence, home to the show's central family, is actually a Georgian mansion located in Greenwich, London. 

Ranger's House, built in 1723, boasts a stunning brick facade and expansive gardens that perfectly capture the grandeur of the Bridgerton family's social standing. The estate's interiors are equally impressive, with ornate furnishings and intricate details that transport viewers back in time.

While the exact value of Ranger's House is not publicly known, similar properties in the area have been estimated to be worth around AUD $50 million. It's no wonder that the Bridgertons are considered one of the most influential families in London society.

The Duke of Hastings' Estate - Wilton House

The swoon-worthy Duke of Hastings, played by Regé-Jean Page, calls the magnificent Wilton House his home in the series. Located in Wiltshire, England, this sprawling estate dates back to 1544 and has been in the Pembroke family for over 400 years. 

The house's interiors are a testament to its rich history, with ornate ceilings, grand staircases, and an impressive art collection.

Wilton House is not only a filming location for Bridgerton but has also been featured in other notable productions such as The Crown and Pride and Prejudice. The estate's estimated worth is a staggering AUD $848 million, making it one of the most valuable properties featured in the show.

The Duke and Duchess' Residence - Castle Howard

In season two, the Duke and Duchess of Hastings take up residence at the breathtaking Castle Howard in Yorkshire. This Baroque masterpiece, built in the early 18th century, is renowned for its stunning architecture and expansive grounds. 

The estate's grand interiors, including the iconic Great Hall with its soaring dome, provide the perfect setting for the lavish parties and social gatherings depicted in the show.

Castle Howard is one of England's most recognizable stately homes and has been featured in numerous films and television series, including Brideshead Revisited and Victoria. The estate's estimated worth is around AUD $320 million, a testament to its enduring beauty and historical significance.

Lady Danbury's Estate - Holburne Museum

Lady Danbury, played by Adjoa Andoh, is one of Bridgerton's most formidable characters, and her estate, Bath's Holburne Museum, is equally impressive. 

Currently housing an art collection from a wealthy naval officer, it was first built in 1799 in a classic style for the area.

During season two, Lady Danbury's residence was home to the Sharma family, with Kate Sharma going on to marry Mr Anthony Bridgerton. For the interiors of the home, both Badminton House and Wilton House were used. 

The estate's estimated worth is a cool AUD $10 million.

The Featheringtons' London Home - No. 1 Royal Crescent

The exterior and entrance hall of this Georgian house museum, located at the right-hand end of Bath's iconic Royal Crescent, was used as the Featheringtons' London residence. 

The building's simplicity was 'blinged up' to suit the pretensions of the Featherington family, with ornamental features like roundels, window pediments, a frieze, and a CGI balcony added to the facade. 

The front door, painted a dark blue, is seen in many shots as the Featherington women troop in and out of their home in their colorful finery. In wider shots, the house is inserted into an artistic recreation of Georgian-era Grosvenor Square in London.

No. 1 Royal Crescent, built between 1767 and 1775, is a magnificently restored town-house museum where visitors can explore fashionable life in 18th-century Georgian Bath. The interiors are furnished and decorated as they would have been in the late 18th century, providing a glimpse into the décor of the era and offering interior design inspiration for Bridgerton fans.

Queen Charlotte's Palace - Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, one of England's largest mansions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, serves as the stunning facade of Queen Charlotte's royal residence in the prequel series. 

Many of the lavish scenes in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story were filmed there. The Great Court was adorned with royal guards and opulent carriages, while the Water Terraces were transformed into an outdoor space for the final ball in episode six.

Built in the early 18th century, Blenheim Palace was the ideal choice to play the Queen’s Buckingham House (now Buckingham Palace) due to its real-life connections with Queen Charlotte and King George III. 

The royal couple shared a close friendship with the 4th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, and their visit to Blenheim inspired them to renovate Buckingham House.

Queen Charlotte's Palace Grounds - Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace, located 12 miles southwest of central London on the River Thames, features prominently in both Bridgerton and Queen Charlotte. The Privy Garden serves as the exterior of Queen Charlotte's palace and is the backdrop for key scenes, including Viscount Anthony Bridgerton's lavish wedding to the season's Diamond. 

Other filming locations within Hampton Court Palace include the Master Carpenter's Court, transformed into London's Chancery Lane for exterior shots; Fountain Court, where Queen Charlotte takes tea under an elaborate awning.

And that's your guide to the locations of London's elite in Bridgerton. Which is your favourite?
