From London: Private Bridgerton Inspired Excursion to Bath and Wilton House
The Regency city of Bath has been the backdrop for many period dramas with its magnificent Royal Crescent lined with stately Georgian houses, cobbled streets and sweeping views of the surrounding Somerset countryside. Sitting in the valley of the River Avon Bath is one of the prettiest cities in the UK and the largest city in the county of Somerset. Named after the famous Roman Baths, Bath’s hot springs have been its main attraction until the arrival of Bridgerton, the latest period drama to explode onto our screens. Filmed in Bath it showcases the romance and scandal of an aristocratic family in London during the early 1800s.
On your private Bridgerton inspired tour of Bath from London, you will:
- Meet your private guide, a Bridgerton enthusiast, at the hotel ready and set off for Bath.
- Stop for a coffee at the quintessentially English village of Bucklebury
- Drive through Lansdowne Fields, Bath Racecourse and Holburne Museum, the home of Lady Danbury
- Once in Bath you'll see iconic sites including Royal Crescent past No.1 which was used for the home of the Featherington family, and visit The Assembly Rooms and their Grand Ballroom, which you'll recognise from the ball room scenes.
- Enjoy lunch at your own pace, with 1.5 hours to explore or have lunch in one of our recommended restaurants
- Tour other Bath highlights, including continues with Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge, Abbey Street and Abbey Green, where The Abbey Deli was transformed into dressmakers 'Modiste'.
- Transfer to Wilton House, a spectacular English Trust home where the Earl and Duchess of Pembroke still live, for a guided tour of the house and gardens used to create four different Bridgerton residences
The Quintessentially British scene is set from the moment you arrive for a coffee in the village of Bucklebury. From here you'll head to Bath and drive through Lansdowne Fields to visit Holburne Museum, home to the formidable Lady Danbury. Once you've arrived in the centre of Bath you start the walking tour and head along The Royal Crescent, passing by No.1, the Featherington's residence, before walking through The Circus and visiting The Assembly Rooms, designed by John Wood the Younger in 1769, which you'll recognise were used for some of the Bridgerton ball scenes. During lunchtime you'll have the chance to visit the Baths if this is something you have pre-booked. In the afternoon you'll continue discovering Regency landmarks including Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge and Abbey Green home to the dressmakers 'Modiste'. The tour wouldn't be complete without visiting the stunning Wilton House, a highlight of the day, where no less than four Bridgerton Residences were filmed. From here your peak into the scandalous lives of the Bridgertons draws to a close and you'll head back to your London hotel.
