To mark the success of Netflix drama Bridgerton, a new book takes a closer look at the elegant places across Georgian Bath that provided the backdrop for the successful series.

Bridgerton’s Bath features filming locations used right across the city from the Royal Crescent to the Holburne Museum.

From No.1 The Royal Crescent (the Featherington’s house on Grosvenor Square) to Abbey Green (Covent Garden) to the Abbey Deli (Modiste couturier) in Abbey Street, the book explores already-famous sites, made even more famous by the drama.
