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.

Per RadioTimes, the exterior of the Bridgerton House was filmed at Ranger's House, a Georgian villa near Greenwich Park in London. It used to be home to King George III’s sister Princess Augusta, but today it has a world-class art collection open to the public.

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.
