Bridgerton has taken Netflix by storm. The binge-worthy series about high-society life in Regency era London features plenty of romance and scandal, plus lavish costumes and swoon-worthy interiors. The stunning homes inhabited by the Bridgerton family, the Duke of Hasting (Regé-Jean Page), Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh), and Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) are all real-life mansions, castles and museums — and each is worth millions.
Mortgage experts at Money.co.uk calculated estimated list prices for seven Bridgerton filming locations. Here’s how much it would cost to buy Hampton Court Palace, Castle Howard, and other Bridgerton homes if they came on the market today.
The Featherington house
Estimated value: £6,439,162 ($8,705,296)
The Featherington family’s London home is actually a property in Bath, England. The home is now a museum that has been restored to look as it would have during the 1776-1796 period.
If No. 1 Royal Crescent was up for sale today, it would cost nearly $9 million, according to Money.co.uk. The site’s experts estimated values based on the size of the property multiplied by the average house price per square meter. Then, they added a 30% “cultural and historical premium value.”
The Bridgerton house
Estimated value: £35,233,027 ($47,632,586)
Daphne Bridgerton’s (Phoebe Dyvenor) home before her marriage is actually Ranger’s House in Greenwich. The home was built in 1723 and was the residence of the Rangers of Greenwich Park. Today, it houses the Wernher Collection, an art collection amassed by Sir Julius Wernher, a 19th-century businessman,.
Lady Danbury’s home
Estimated value: £44,534,990 ($60,208,189)
Like the Bridgerton family’s home, Lady Danbury’s house is also a real-life museum. The Holburne Museum in Bath — formerly the Sydney Hotel — was used for exterior shots of the character’s house. The museum itself showcases the collection of Sir William Holburne.
The Duke of Hastings’ London home
Estimated value: £111,971,261 ($151,377,306)
Simon Bassett’s grand London home is actually Wilton House in Salisbury, built in 1543 by the 1st Earl of Pembroke. The house was also a filming location for a number of Bridgerton interior scenes, according to House Beautiful. Wilton House rooms stood in for Queen Charlotte’s royal residence, the dining room at Clyvedon Castle, and Lady Danbury’s library.
Estimated value: £213,416,717 ($288,524,462)
After Simon and Daphne get married, they spend their honeymoon at the Duke’s other home, Clyvedon Castle. Clyvedon is actually Castle Howard in Yorkshire. 1st Earl of Carlisle, Charles Howard began construction on the house in 1699. The massive home — still owned by members of the Howard family — took over 100 years to build. It’s also been seen in several other films and TV shows, including the 1981 miniseries Brideshead Revisited.
Queen Charlotte’s palace
Estimated value: £473,096,481 ($639,593,325)
Naturally, Bridgerton’s queen lives in the grandest home of all. The exterior of Queen Charlotte’s residence is really Hampton Court Palace, where Henry VIII lived. But by the time the actual Queen Charlotte was on the throne, Hampton Court was no longer a royal residence. Instead, she and King George III lived at Buckingham Palace.
