What better way to soak up all of Bridgerton’s opulent splendour than with a luxurious visit to Bath, which is one of the beautiful filming locations for the popular Netflix series?
Despite the period drama’s specific setting being the social hub of London, the Bridgerton team cleverly chose to film in the historic spa town of Bath. The city is almost like a living museum, with its beautiful examples of Georgian architecture and cobbled streets.
Do you want a taste of the Bridgerton high-society glamour? We’ve compiled a list of our favourite Regency-style hotels in Bath for you to visit. We can’t promise you’ll be greeted by a dashing Duke, but you can count on opulent design, sumptuous details, and first-class service!
The Royal Crescent Hotel
The jewel in the crown of the Royal Crescent – the exterior of which features frequently in Bridgerton – is a five-star haven of elegance and tranquillity. The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture’s style and glamour – each room is individually designed with sumptuous fabrics and furnishings, and many have floor-to-ceiling views of the Crescent lawn from grand Georgian windows. We’re pretty certain the Featheringtons would approve!

Hotel Indigo Bath
Hotel Indigo opened on South Parade in Bath’s city centre in 2020. The hotel consists of 11 Georgian townhouses designed by eighteenth-century architect John Wood the Elder and the 166 rooms are contemporary (ideal for an Instagram snap) while remaining loyal to the Georgian era. Situated just a stone’s throw from the city’s best cultural delights and gastronomic hotspots, you can feel like Viscount Bridgerton as you wander from its front door down the open cobbled streets (originally designed for carriages) and into the delightful hubbub of Bath’s beating heart.
