Based on Julia Quinn's Regency romance novels, Shondaland's Bridgerton often feels like a dreamy fairy tale. The beautiful filming locations play a big part in that; Bridgerton filmed at over 100 on-site locations and utilized intricate set designs to create a glossy heightened reality.
Not all of the IRL locations are open to the public, but here are a few of the major spots that you can visit for yourself.

Like many other period dramas, Bridgerton filmed a lot of its residential scenes at Bath's Royal Crescent, a curving row of houses that was built between 1767 and 1775. Today, it's home to a five-star hotel and a museum at No. 1 Royal Crescent.

Per The Bath Echo, two of Bridgerton's balls were filmed at Bath's Holburne Museum, an art gallery. Holburne is also where they filmed Danbury House, the home of rich widow Lady Danbury.

Netflix filmed the exterior of Simon Basset's Hastings House at Wilton House in Salisbury. It’s currently home to the Earl and Countess of Pembroke, but a portion is open to the public.
Some of the Queen Charlotte scenes were also filmed at Wilton House. Her throne is located in the Single Cube Room, one of the staterooms that were finished in the mid-17th century.

Unfortunately, the Duke and Duchess of Hastings' Clyvedon Castle is not real, but some of the exteriors were filmed at Castle Howard in York, a popular tourist attraction. Some of the interiors were, again, filmed at Wilton House.
Lady Danbury throws a huge party at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, which no longer exists. Per RadioTimes, you can visit the bits and pieces used in Bridgerton, though. The production team combined the facade of Castle Howard in York with the grounds at Stowe Park in Buckinghamshire to recreate Vauxhall.
