Bridgerton on Netflix thinks that Bath is London

Released on Christmas Day on Netflix, Bridgerton has made headlines online and off-line.

The series is an adaptation of Julia Quinn’s series of romance novels set in the Regency Period. It may please some, but not everyone is convinced above all by the fact that it is not very accurate historically.

The thing that amazed and shocked many however is having used the Royal Crescent in Bath, one of the most recognizable buildings in this city, for a story set in London.

Wilton House in Wiltshire is used several times, becoming Clyvedon Castle (which does not exist), Hampton Court Palace and the London home of the Duke of Hastings. Wilton House is very popular, in fact it is also seen in the Netflix drama the Crown.

Although many are shocked, remember that it is fiction and does not have to be historically accurate. But just so as not to get too confused, it’s worth remembering that the Royal Crescent is still located in Bath.
