IT HAS proved a runaway hit on Netflix. Bodice ripper romance Bridgerton has filled the gap left by Downton Abbey, raising temperatures in Regency England.
And now fans of the series have the chance to explore the show’s luxurious locations on tailor-made tours taking in some of the most iconic and memorable scenes.
Small group tour specialist Rabbie’s is offering one-off itineraries and experiences where you can pick from more than 100 on-site TV and movie locations to visit.
They now include Bridgerton trips, with a specialist team helping fans with requests based on the things they love most about the show already watched by 63 million people.
You may want to promenade around Castle Howard in Yorkshire – also known as Clyvedon Castle, home to the Duke and Daphne – or Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, where you can take in the iconic Marble Hall.
You could travel to the Grade I listed No.1 Royal Crescent in Bath which was the picture-perfect Featherington home in the series.
It’s now a museum which has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been during the period 1776-1796.
The rooms feature historic furniture, pictures and objects that reveal what life was like for Bath’s fashionable residents – both upstairs and downstairs.
In historic Bath, you could also visit other filming locations to be fully immersed in the glittering social scene seen on screen.
Locations include the spots where two balls were filmed in the Holburne Museum and the Guildhall, providing fodder for Lady Whistledown’s newsletter.
And did you know that where the society ladies had their luxurious dresses made by the Modiste is actually a café tucked away down a charming street in the centre of the city?
Further afield, there are several other stately homes. In London, you might visit Hampton Court – home of Queen Charlotte – or the Bridgerton residence which is, in fact, Ranger’s House in Greenwich.
Here, you can also see a world-class art collection.
Bridgerton experiences will include a dedicated tour guide who will provide insights on the filming locations.
With social distancing measures in place, reduced group sizes and increased cleaning measures, Rabbie’s says the company can offer worry-free journeys so you can enjoy the Bridgerton experience without concerns.
