After Season 2, traveling to real-life Bridgerton locations became a trend (of course)

Sadly, no amount of lily perfume or Regency costumes can make Anthony Bridgerton — or any of the dreamy moments in Bridgerton Season 2 — real. But traveling to the actual Bridgerton filming locations (ideally on the plane with the classic Harry Styles blasting through your headphones) can get you closer than most. And you probably won't be the only one making the pilgrimage. Google searches for UK luxury homes are up 23% over the last month, The Guardian reports, citing data analyzed by The French Bedroom Company, so if you're wondering where to travel to get the full spread Richton Experience, then you're in good company.

The Guardian also spoke to the people behind several of these properties, who confirmed that Bridgerton had a tangible impact on the real-life locations its characters call home.

Even though the Duke of Hastings is missing from Bridgerton season 2, his stunning home is still worth a visit. The exteriors of his Cliveden estate were filmed at Castle Howard, and Abbi Olive, head of marketing sales and programming, said Bridgerton saw a 3,408% increase in online visitors to 18-24 year olds following its debut . She told the Guardian: "As attractions open and travel and tourism recover post-pandemic, we do expect visitor numbers to increase due to the Bridgerton factor."

This travel trend has also been reported in other parts of the UK. In February 2021, Visit Bath's Kathryn Davis told the BBC that the Holburne Museum and The Assembly Rooms (which merged to form Lady Danbury ’s residence) and the iconic period setting No. 1 Royal Crescent saw an increase in online traffic.

Of course, if you want to relive specific moments from season 2, you can start by visiting Windsor Great Park — a free, open-to-the-public park where Kate and Anthony were, according to Town & Country Hunting together, that's where Kate fell off. Her horse was taken away before Anthony could take her home. As production designer Will Hughes-Jones told the magazine, this pivotal scene was accomplished with the help of a mechanical horse and a giant rain machine.
