The Bridgerton-effect has caused the United Kingdom's playground of palaces and parks to see a surge in visitors. VisitBritain's CEO Patricia Yates, explains: "Bridgerton promotes Britain's world-renowned history and heritage and associated experiences to a global audience, inspiring visitors to come and see the filming locations and destinations for themselves."  

Don't be afraid to venture beyond London. The country is well connected with motorways and trains from central London. Regency attire is optional, enthusiasm is a must. Here are the best of Bridgerton's filming locations in the UK.
