Dear gentle reader.

Anyone who’s a true Bridgerton fan will recognize these three well-known, unforgettable opening words from Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) on the world-famous series. It’s been over two years since we last heard from Lady Whistledown. That’s all about to change.

To the delight of the Bridgerton fanbase, which includes me, May 16, 2024, marked the launch of Part 1 of Bridgerton Season 3 arriving on Netflix. Like seasons 1 and 2, Season 3 will consist of 8 episodes in total.

According to Trainline, Europe’s number one booking platform, the Bridgerton effect on travel is in full force for U.S. travelers:

  • Brighton (Theatre Royal Brighton) – 61% increase in bookings.

Take in an opera performance worthy of the ton at this famous concert hall, the site of several scenes from Season 1.

  • Windsor (Windsor Great Park) – 58% increase in bookings.

Kanthony fans will be quick to recognize this destination as the site of their most infamous scenes – from the hunting trip to Kate’s accident in the penultimate episode of season 2.

  • Cobham & Stoke D’Abernon (Painshill Park, Surrey) – 40% increase in bookings

Eagle-eyed fans will remember Painshill Park from a Featherington family picnic in season 1; the garden is also expected to pop back up in Season 3.

  • Salisbury (Wilton House, Wiltshire) – 37% increase in bookings

Prepare to make your entrance into society and Wilton House, home to the Queen’s stately rooms where debutantes are presented at the start of each season.

  • York (Castle Howard, North Yorkshire) – 26% increase in bookings

Get swept off your feet at the filming location for Clyvedon Castle, the Duke of Hastings regal residence.

  • Bath (No. 1 Royal Crescent) – 22% increase in bookings

Fans will recognize this filming location as the exterior of the Featherington home and nearby Lady Danbury’s estate (located in the Holburne Museum).

  • Chatham (Chatham Dockyard) – 20% increase in bookings

Take a stroll through the same streets where Lady Featherington took Marina in Season 1, and the site for the boxing saloon where the duke practiced his skills.

So, these represent some of the most popular destinations featured in the first two seasons, but can we start planning ahead to visit the filming locations of Season 3?

Yes, we can. Thanks to Brightline and tips from Emilyn The, a UK and UE travel writer, Bridgerton fans can start mapping out their getaways, many in London or within easy reach by train.
