Behind the scenes of filming Bridgerton at Castle Howard

Dear reader, when season 1 of Bridgerton was broadcast on Netflix in 2020, Castle Howard played a starring role in Episode 6, doubling as Clyvedon Castle.

Based upon Julia Quinn’s novels, the eight-episode series features London in the regency era of Britain, during the debutante season. The Bridgerton family are the focus of this series, made up of…

Violet (Mother) - Ruth Gemmell
Edmund (Deceased Father)
Anthony (Head of the Household) - Jonathan Bailey
Benedict - Luke Thompson
Colin - Luke Newton
Daphne - Phoebe Dynevor
Eloise - Claudia Jessie
Francesca – Ruby Stokes
Gregory – Will Tilston
Hyacinth – Florence Hunt

In season 1, Daphne Bridgerton’s story and relationship with the Duke of Hastings (played by Rege-Jean Page) is told. Each book and Netflix season will focus upon a different sibling and Season 2 will be all about Anthony and his search for a viscountess.

Filming Episode Six

The House, Gardens and wider estate were highly featured in Episode 6, and also (briefly) in Episode 1, where our 18th century Walled Garden hosted a famous fight scene between Daphne and Nigel Berbrooke (played by Jamie Beamish).

The Great Hall

Castle Howard’s Great Hall has always been intended as the main entrance to Castle Howard and in Bridgerton, it is accurately used in this way.
