2022 is an exciting year for film releases produced in Britain - set in both gritty urban settings and stunning rural landscapes. One of the highlights of the year is the long-awaited season two of Bridgerton. This modern take on life in Regency England has turned out to be a huge success after the launch of the first season in December 2020 and has made audiences around the world dream of a life like that of the powerful, and glamourous, Bridgerton family. With the easing of restrictions, visitors can finally visit Britain again and discover the real-life filming locations for themselves. A wide variety of Bridgerton inspired experiences are being offered this spring and summer of which Lady Whistledown would undoubtedly approve.

1. An evening in Regency England

Secret Cinema, and promoters of immersive experiences Fever, are inviting visitors to step into the world of Bridgerton until the end of March. At a secret location in London, which has been dressed up to the nines, visitors to the Bridgerton Ball are being transported back to 1813. Each guest will be given a character, along with a storyline and a quest to fulfil over the course of the evening. During the three-hour experience, there is plenty of time to dance, enjoy canapés, and mingle with members of the upper classes (fellow revellers!).
