Antonia Hicks linking each fictional location to its real-life counterpart. Winston Churchill’s former gentleman’s retreat, The Reform Club, becomes ‘Whites Club’ where Anthony Bridgerton and Simon Basset meet to discuss infidelities and smoke cigars.
Readers can learn about the locations used for the Bridgertons, Featheringtons, Lady Danbury, the Duke of Hastings, Queen Charlotte, Whites, Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, Somerset House, Primrose Hill, Clyveden Castle and 18th-century dress shop, ‘Modiste’ (a deli in Bath’s Abbey Street). Sites include Stowe and Painshill Park, Henry VIII’s Hampton Court, Castle Howard, Bath’s Royal Crescent, The Holburne Museum, Wilton House, Lancaster House and the most upmarket Air Force officer’s mess in the world!
This is the perfect book for fans of the grand stately homes and sweeping classical landscapes that producers Chris Van Dusen and Shonda Rhimes picked for Bridgerton. Almost all the stately homes, houses, parks and gardens used in Bridgerton are open to the public and the book examines their history, linking important scenes to each location and giving details of where and when you can visit them to relive the drama.
