On a visit to London , some of the top attractions are linked to the royal family. But nothing is quite as iconic as a visit to the one of the three official residences of the monarchy – Buckingham Palace . While it's only open to the public on select dates, you can relish in its beauty from the regal gates, snap a selfie and catch a Changing the Guard ceremony.

How to Tour Buckingham Palace

For about 10 weeks every summer (select dates from July 11 to Sept. 29, 2024), Buckingham Palace opens its elaborate gates, welcoming visitors to explore its lavish State Rooms, grounds and Royal Collection artworks. The Royal Mews is also open to visitors from March to October, showcasing the Royal Family's real working stables and ornate, historic carriages – including the Gold State Coach used for Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Coronation in 2022.

If you aren't here at the right time, fear not; this extravagant, 18th-century royal residence is just as impressive from the outside, making it worth a visit any time of year. Check online for a current schedule of the Changing the Guard ceremony – when the red-and-black-clad Royal Guard marches toward the palace, accompanied by striking military music – and see a tradition that's been running for more than 300 years. Combine it with explorations in the surrounding area of Westminster to see London at its most quintessential.

You can explore all of this independently, of course – but if you're looking to dig a little deeper, hear about the king's coronation and uncover local secrets, consider a guided London tour . Insider experts can point out the best photo spots, take you to the must-see sights and show you the ins and outs of the area, while sharing knowledge of the country's royal history along the way.

There are tons of options out there, so where do you start? Based on local knowledge and traveler review sites, here are some of the most highly rated tours.

Changing of the Guard Walking Tour

Price: From $13 Duration: 2 to 3 hours Standout perk: Witness the pomp of the iconic Changing the Guard ceremony.

Watch the Royal Guard march toward Buckingham Palace as you witness this historic, quintessentially British spectacle on a tour of Westminster's highlights. Accompanied by a military band, you'll see the Old Guard (soldiers on duty) switch to the New Guard as they arrive at the palace from Wellington Barracks. Your guide will explain which regiment is which, before taking you on a guided walking tour past other world-famous, attractions, including Big Ben, Clarence House, the Houses of Parliament , St James's Palace and Westminster Abbey .

Recent travelers gave high ratings to the tour, saying guides were able to take them to the best photo spots for the ceremony while offering a wealth of historical and entertaining insight.

Tours leave at 10 a.m. and depart from the Victoria Palace Theatre. The outings end at Parliament Square.

Local tip: Look at the Horse Guards Clock on the Horse Guards Parade – the official entrance to Buckingham Palace and St James's Palace – to see a dark stain above the 2 (II, in Roman numerals). It marks the time King Charles I was executed outside the Palace of Whitehall in 1649, after being charged with treason.

Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle Tour

Price: From $161 Duration: 8.5 hours Standout perk: Get a rare chance to explore the State Rooms with Buckingham Palace tickets, and tick off two of the United Kingdom's grandest royal residences in one day.

This twin-castle tour offers the opportunity to enter Buckingham Palace and see its State Rooms, Royal Collection artwork and other treasures, with commentary from an audio guide. After you've toured the palace, you'll travel by coach about 25 miles west of London to Windsor Castle – the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, and the family home of the monarchy for more than 900 years. Explore the castle's lavish State Apartments and grounds, and visit St George's Chapel – the burial place of Queen Elizabeth II alongside many other monarchs, and the spot where Prince Harry married Meghan Markle.

Recent travelers said the tour was a great opportunity to see inside both palaces. Several commented on the extensive art collection at Buckingham Palace, and many enjoyed hearing insights from the guides, although some complained about long lines.

The tour takes place from July through September on select Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and leaves from Victoria Coach Station at 7:45 a.m.

Local tip: Windsor Castle has its own Changing the Guard ceremony, as well as its own extensive art collection. The ceremony takes place at 11 a.m. on select days of the week.

Best of London Tour Including Tower of London and Changing of the Guard

The illuminated Millennium Wheel (or London Eye) at night.

Price: From $144; with optional London Eye or Harrods cream tea for an additional fee Duration: 9 hours Standout perk: You'll see many of London's key attractions in one day, and enjoy a river cruise thrown in for good measure.

If you want to combine a visit to see Buckingham Palace's Changing the Guard ceremony with stops at several other London spots, this is a great choice. The full-day trip begins at the UNESCO listed Tower of London where you'll have the chance to see the crown jewels.

From here, you'll visit Buckingham Palace to witness the famous pomp and pageantry of the ceremony and get the chance to admire the palace's impressive architecture from the outside. The day includes a tour of the elaborate St. Paul's Cathedral (not available on Sundays), before embarking on a boat tour of the Thames, passing key attractions including Tower Bridge and Shakespeare's Globe. The day also includes a photo stop at Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton married in 2011, and a brief walking tour of Parliament Square. Travelers can choose to add a ride on the famous London Eye observation wheel (or opt for a quintessentially British cream tea at Harrods instead).

Recent travelers loved the tour and praised the guides as highly knowledgeable and entertaining. Many were impressed with how much they saw in a day and said it gave them a great introduction to London (although it's worth noting a few felt there was quite a bit of walking involved).

Tours leave from Victoria Coach Station at 7:45 a.m. and finish at the London Eye.

Local tip: If you fancy delving deeper into the Tower of London in your own time, book a ticket to see the Ceremony of the Keys. Dating back seven centuries, this nightly ceremony is when the castle gets locked up for the night, with a special exchange between the sentry and Yeoman Warder taking place at 9:30 p.m. between the atmospheric battlements – both eerie and magical.

Buckingham palace interesting facts.

The Centre Piece of Britain’s Constitutional Monarchy

Buckingham Palace is home to over 775 rooms, 19 of these are State rooms along with 52 official royal bedrooms and guest rooms. The staff themselves, have an impressive 188 bedrooms, 92 offices and a lavish 78 bathrooms. Still very much a working building it is the center piece of Britain’s constitutional monarchy which includes the everyday duties of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh as well as their immediate family. Buckingham Palace was first opened to the general public in 1993 and it is opened every year between April and September since.

Banquets & Ceremonies

State banquets also take place in the main Ballroom of Buckingham Palace; these formal dinners take place on the first evening of a state visit by a visiting Head of State. On these occasions, 150 or more guests in formal “white tie and decorations”, including tiaras for women, may dine off gold plate.

The largest and most formal reception at Buckingham Palace takes place every November, when the Queen entertains members of the foreign diplomatic corps resident in London. On this occasion, all the state rooms are in use, as the Royal Family proceed through them beginning through the great north doors of the Picture Gallery.

As Nash had envisaged, all the large, double-mirrored doors stand open, reflecting the numerous crystal chandeliers and sconces, causing a deliberate optical illusion of space and light.

Smaller ceremonies such as the reception of new ambassadors take place in the “1844 Room”. Here too the Queen holds small lunch parties, and often meetings of the Privy Council. Larger lunch parties often take place in the curved and domed Music Room, or the State Dining Room.On all formal occasions the ceremonies are attended by the Yeomen of the Guard in their historic uniforms, and other officers of the court such as the Lord Chamberlain. Since the bombing of the palace chapel in World War II, royal christenings have sometimes taken place in the Music Room. The Queen’s first three children were all baptised here in a special gold font. Prince William was also christened in the Music Room. However, his brother, Prince Harry, was christened at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

World news | map: air advisory for bay area goes out as smoke from point, sites fires sends haze, world news | ‘if kate middleton misses wimbledon’ … concerns about the princess ramping up again, it’s not clear whether the princess will be at several major events in the next month, including saturday’s trooping the color and her beloved wimbledon tennis tournament.

Britain's Catherine, Princess of Wales applauds during the trophy ceremony after the men's singles final tennis match between Spain's Carlos Alcaraz and Serbia's Novak Djokovic on the last day of the 2023 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on July 16, 2023.

But that respite is turning out to be brief, and the wild speculation is ramping up again, following different news reports about whether or not the Princess of Wales will attend an important upcoming event. Reports also have offered a range of target dates for how long Britain’s very popular royal will remain out of the public eye — from all of June, through autumn, to the end of the year.

There’s no word, for example, on whether Kate will attend the Wimbledon tennis championships, starting July 1. An avid tennis fan and patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Kate usually attends the tournament’s major matches, always impeccably attired, and hands out trophies to winners.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 24: In this handout images released by Kensington Palace on June 24, 2023, Catherine, Princess of Wales and Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer talk before playing tennis on No.3 Court at The All England Lawn Tennis Club, Wimbledon, on June 8, 2023 in London, England. (Photo by Handout/Thomas Lovelock - AELTC via Getty Images)

But her possible absence from Wimbledon 2024 has prompted some of the chatter about how she’s doing. “I’ve said for a while that if Kate misses Wimbledon in July, then there is something very serious going on,” one person wrote on X .

While this person may be trying to suggest something grim about Kate’s condition, it could also be said that any kind of cancer is serious, and that Kate, her husband Prince William and the rest of her family are clearly taking her recovery very seriously.

But within this context, it was widely reported that she missed a major event last weekend, a rehearsal for this upcoming weekend’s Trooping The Color, the Daily Beast reported. As the new honorary colonel of the Irish Guards, the 42-year-old mother of three was invited to attend the rehearsal, but instead sent a letter apologizing for her absence.

But even as she missed the rehearsal, the palace still hasn’t made it clear whether she’ll be present at Trooping the Color on Saturday. This is the official celebration of the British monarch’s birthday, which culminates in the King’s Birthday Parade through the streets of London and members of the royal family appearing together on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, the Daily Beast said.

Buckingham Palace, however, hinted that she wouldn’t participate in events related to the state visit of the Emperor and Empress of Japan, June 25-27, Newsweek reported . A news release only mentioned that Prince William would greet the imperial couple at their hotel in London before attending a welcome ceremony with them at Buckingham Palace.

Last week, William offered what could be seen as a positive update on his wife’s condition while attending the 80th anniversary commemoration of the D-Day landings during World War II, Newsweek reported. While chatting with a veteran, the future king said that his wife is “getting better” and said she “would have loved” to be there. Video of William’s comments to the veteran went viral, probably because there’s otherwise been a dearth of official information about her recovery.

Ever since Kate disappeared from public view after Christmas, Kensington Palace has refused to offer regular updates on the princess’ condition, suggesting that any running commentary would be distasteful and an invasion of her privacy. The palace, though, disclosed that she underwent major abdominal surgery in January, which required a two-week hospital stay.

Kate herself revealed in her March video t hat the surgery led to her being diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer. The palace also has said she’ll only return to public duties when she’s cleared to do so by her medical team, but, again, hasn’t said anything more specific than that.

Meanwhile, sources who claim to have knowledge of the princess’ health have offered varying accounts of how she’s doing.

Some sources told the Daily Mail last month that the “princess has been seen out and about more with her family in recent weeks, which will be taken as a positive sign by many.” But Kensington Palace sources also were keen to stress late last month that she wasn’t returning to work anytime soon, after the release of a major report on early childhood development that she was involved in.

Another Daily Mail journalist, columnist Richard Eden, cited friends of Kate’s who said it could be months until she is seen again in public. “Friends I spoke to in the past few days suggest we might not see Catherine again until the autumn – and only then if she has recovered fully,” Eden reported.

The Daily Beast’s royal correspondent Tom Sykes also quoted a source who said she might not be seen in “any kind of public-facing role” through the end of the year. “Lots of people involved in planning need to know what all the principals are doing a long way in advance,” the source said. “I am told that Kate’s diary for this year is empty. There is nothing planned. She may not appear in public for the rest of the year.”

Last week, Us Weekly published the even more startling news that alleged that Kate “may never come back in the role that people saw her in before.” The report said her team is “reevaluating what she’s going to be able to take on when she comes back.”

Other theories are versions of those that have circulated on the internet since Kate’s surgery in January. There also is the vicious #KateGate gossip that exploded after Kensington Palace posted the infamous March 10 Mother’s Day photo of her and her children that was revealed to have been heavily edited.

But a former royal editor for the British ITN broadcast and media company bemoaned the dearth of official information and noted that William’s comment about his wife’s improvement is along the lines of other anodyne updates he’s given before. “But without in any way dampening down optimism about this, that is all we have heard,” Tim Ewart said in an interview with Australia’s Sky News. 

He also expressed concern about the mystery over whether Kate will be on the Buckingham Palace balcony for Saturday’s Trooping the Color. He said her appearance would be a “crucial” tell-all moment.

“We’re hoping that she’ll be on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, but that would be the first time officially that we’ve seen her,” Ewart said. “Does she look well does she look happy? I think it is fair to say people here are still quite concerned about her health.”

Meanwhile, another source close to the princess told Life & Style that she’s trying to focus on her recovery and her family, while ignoring the speculation and public pressure for her to be seen at certain events or within a certain time frame. “Kate’s recovery is a one day-at-a-time thing,” the insider said.

The 5 Best Sightseeing Tours of Buckingham Palace

O n a visit to London , some of the top attractions are linked to the royal family. But nothing is quite as iconic as a visit to the one of the three official residences of the monarchy – Buckingham Palace . While it's only open to the public on select dates, you can relish in its beauty from the regal gates, snap a selfie and catch a Changing the Guard ceremony.

How to Tour Buckingham Palace

For about 10 weeks every summer (select dates from July 11 to Sept. 29, 2024), Buckingham Palace opens its elaborate gates, welcoming visitors to explore its lavish State Rooms, grounds and Royal Collection artworks. The Royal Mews is also open to visitors from March to October, showcasing the Royal Family's real working stables and ornate, historic carriages – including the Gold State Coach used for Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Coronation in 2022.

If you aren't here at the right time, fear not; this extravagant, 18th-century royal residence is just as impressive from the outside, making it worth a visit any time of year. Check online for a current schedule of the Changing the Guard ceremony – when the red-and-black-clad Royal Guard marches toward the palace, accompanied by striking military music – and see a tradition that's been running for more than 300 years. Combine it with explorations in the surrounding area of Westminster to see London at its most quintessential.

You can explore all of this independently, of course – but if you're looking to dig a little deeper, hear about the king's coronation and uncover local secrets, consider a guided London tour . Insider experts can point out the best photo spots, take you to the must-see sights and show you the ins and outs of the area, while sharing knowledge of the country's royal history along the way.

There are tons of options out there, so where do you start? Based on local knowledge and traveler review sites, here are some of the most highly rated tours.

Changing of the Guard Walking Tour

Price: From $13

Duration: 2 to 3 hours

Standout perk: Witness the pomp of the iconic Changing the Guard ceremony.

Watch the Royal Guard march toward Buckingham Palace as you witness this historic, quintessentially British spectacle on a tour of Westminster's highlights. Accompanied by a military band, you'll see the Old Guard (soldiers on duty) switch to the New Guard as they arrive at the palace from Wellington Barracks. Your guide will explain which regiment is which, before taking you on a guided walking tour past other world-famous, attractions, including Big Ben, Clarence House, the Houses of Parliament , St James's Palace and Westminster Abbey .

Recent travelers gave high ratings to the tour, saying guides were able to take them to the best photo spots for the ceremony while offering a wealth of historical and entertaining insight.

Tours leave at 10 a.m. and depart from the Victoria Palace Theatre. The outings end at Parliament Square.

Local tip: Look at the Horse Guards Clock on the Horse Guards Parade – the official entrance to Buckingham Palace and St James's Palace – to see a dark stain above the 2 (II, in Roman numerals). It marks the time King Charles I was executed outside the Palace of Whitehall in 1649, after being charged with treason.

Recent travelers said the tour was a great opportunity to see inside both palaces. Several commented on the extensive art collection at Buckingham Palace, and many enjoyed hearing insights from the guides, although some complained about long lines.

Tours leave from Victoria Coach Station at 7:45 a.m. and finish at the London Eye.

Local tip: If you fancy delving deeper into the Tower of London in your own time, book a ticket to see the Ceremony of the Keys. Dating back seven centuries, this nightly ceremony is when the castle gets locked up for the night, with a special exchange between the sentry and Yeoman Warder taking place at 9:30 p.m. between the atmospheric battlements – both eerie and magical.

Where Is Bridgerton Filmed? All About the Real-Life Locations From Season 1 to Season 3

Fans can visit where Anthony and Kate shared their first kiss or Daphne threw a knock-out punch

Lady Whistledown has a hit on her hands: The love of Netflix’s period drama series Bridgerton is only growing stronger.

The release of season 3 — which spotlights the whimsical love story of Penelope Featherington ( Nicola Coughlan ) and Colin Bridgerton ( Luke Newton ) — marked the show’s best weekend opening with over 45 million views worldwide, according to The Hollywood Reporter .

While the Regency-era costumes and passionate love scenes contribute to the success of Shonda Rhimes ' created series, the lavish wisteria-filled sets of the Bridgerton universe are undoubtedly a major part of the show’s romantic mystique as well.

To bring the magical world of Julia Quinn’s books to life, Bridgerton ’s production crew filmed all across the United Kingdom — from real Tudor-era mansions and courtyards in the countryside to iconic museums and historic churches in the heart of London.

So where is Bridgerton filmed? Here's everything to know about the show's filming locations and how to visit.

Royal Crescent

Location: Bath, England

Despite the show being about London’s high society, the production team used the row of terrace houses composing the famed Royal Crescent to depict the exterior of the Featherington household.

The 500-foot-long stretch of 18th-century Georgian homes can be found in Bath — about a three-hour drive from London’s city center.

Visitors can admire one of Bath’s most iconic landmarks while enjoying the area's neighboring Royal Victoria Park or The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa. There is also a museum for guests to tour one of the homes and learn more about the Royal Crescent’s architecture and history.

Hatfield House

Location: Hertfordshire, England

While the exterior of the Featheringtons’ home is in Bath, the interior has been frequently shot three hours away in a heritage property called Hatfield House in the county of Hertfordshire.

It’s also been reported that Hatfield, a 17th-century Jacobean property once home to the first Earl of Salisbury, was used for various scenes of the inside of the Bridgerton estate in season 2. Movie fans may also recognize the property for appearing in films like Sleepy Hollow (1999), V for Vendetta (2005), The King’s Speech (2010) and The Favourite (2018).

The grounds are now open to visitors, who can explore the estate’s garden, stable yard, nearby nature paths and accompanying restaurant.

Lancaster House

Location: London, England

Bridgerton fans remember seeing the luxe interior of Lancaster House — a property near Buckingham Palace commissioned in 1825 by the then Duke of York and later becoming the home of the first Duke of Sutherland — featured prominently in season 2 scenes between Edwina Sharma ( Charithra Chandran ) and Queen Charlotte ( Golda Rosheuvel ) in Her Majesty’s residence.

The building now belongs to the British government and is used for various events. Lancaster House has also appeared in The King’s Speech , The Crown (2016-2023), National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) and more.

Reform Club

Within walking distance of Buckingham Palace is the Reform Club , one of the most prestigious members-only social clubs in London — but more commonly known to viewers as the place where Anthony Bridgerton ( Jonathan Bailey ) and the Duke of Hastings ( Regé Jean-Page ) had a memorable heart-to-heart in season 1.

The Club was founded in 1836 as a political center for the Whigs and Radicals and later became a nonpolitical meeting place boasting Italian Renaissance architecture and a robust art collection. The Reform Club is not usually open to visitors, except for organized groups during the week, but will occasionally grant access to the public.

St. James Church

It’s impossible to forget the dramatic wedding scene between Anthony and Edwina that resulted in family tension and the steamy kiss Lord Bridgerton shared with his eventual bride, Kate Sharma ( Simone Ashley ).

The climatic sequence took place in St. James Church in Piccadilly, built by Sir Christopher Wren and consecrated in 1684. Today, the Church of England congregation describes the St. James community as a “welcoming and inclusive” place for worship, where visitors may join in prayer or get involved in various services and programs around the arts, social justice and spiritual life.

The Holburne Museum

One look at The Holburne Museum and it's easy to see that Lady Danbury ( Adjoa Andoh )’s digs are unmatched.

The iconic museum attracts many thanks to its various exhibits and extensive art collection of roughly 9,000 objects belonging to Sir William Holbourne, the fifth baronet of Menstrie. Visitors can stop by every day except Sunday to observe paintings and sculptures, plus attend events.

The Abbey Deli

Viewers who have pictured themselves trying on lavish ball gowns in Madame Delacroix ( Kathryn Drysdale )’s Modiste shop can make part of that fantasy come true when visiting The Abbey Deli .

The eatery, which served as the backdrop of the dress shop, is located a few steps away from the Bath Abbey church. The business proudly boasts its role in the hit Netflix series, even adding a Modiste afternoon tea experience to its menu for guests.

Castle Howard

Location: York, England

Castle Howard , an estate that took over 100 years to complete, served numerous filming purposes in season 1 of Bridgerton .

Most memorably, Daphne Bridgerton ( Phoebe Dynevor ) knocked out Nigel Berbrooke (Jamie Beamish) with a punch in the Walled Garden area of the 18th-century castle grounds in one scene.

In another, Daphne and the Duke enjoyed intimate moments in Castle Howard’s Archbishop’s bedroom, where real guests are hosted today.

The castle grounds are also home to monuments, statues and temples, including The Temple of the Four Winds, where the Duke and Duchess take shelter when a heavy downpour disrupts their evening walk.

Hampton Court Palace

In season 3 episode 4, Hampton Court Palace shines front and center as the venue for Queen Charlotte’s ball. The Privy Garden on the grounds is also a focal point in season 2 outdoor moments between the Sharma sisters.

Finally, the Master Carpenter’s Court area has been used as the printing shop where Lady Whistledown’s pamphlets are created.

The historical home was home to Henry VIII before becoming the palace of William III and Mary II. Visitors are welcome to walk through these areas of the Tudor home and attend public summer concerts in the grand courtyard.

Ranger’s House

Fans who fantasize about living at the Bridgerton household will want to take a picture in front of Ranger’s House, where many of the exterior home shots of the family estate have been captured.

Ranger’s House guests can admire the red-brick Georgian home featured in several scenes and venture inside to see 19th-century businessman Sir Julius Wernher’s vast art collection, consisting of over 700 works of Renaissance art, medieval sculptures and jewelry pieces.

Kingston Bagpuize House

Location: Oxfordshire, England

Remember how shocked Will (Martin Imhangbe) and Alice Mondrich ( Emma Naomi ) were when they stepped out of their carriage in season 3 to see the home they would be living in after their son Nicky (James Bryan) unexpectedly inherited the Baron of Ken title?

Fans may have the same reaction when they visit Kingston Bagpuize House , where the fictional family’s life changed forever.

Apart from the exterior, viewers will particularly remember seeing glimpses of the Entrance Hall, Drawing Room and Pink Bedroom if they venture inside the manor.

The Kingston Bagpuize House — with a history that dates back to the 11th century — and accompanying garden are open to the public on select Sundays and Mondays throughout the year.

Wilton House

Location: Wiltshire, England

Debutantes can be declared the season’s diamond or cast aside in the halls of Wilton House , which has served in the series as Queen Charlotte’s presentation room, among other things.

According to House Beautiful , the 16th-century home, which is owned today by the 18th Earl and Countess of Pembroke and built on land granted by Henry VIII, is also where various bedroom, parlor and garden party scenes with Her Majesty have been captured.

The outlet also reports that the residence's interior was used to depict Lady Danbury’s library. Those hoping to visit can purchase tickets upon arrival before exploring different parts of the house and grounds.

Windsor Great Park

Location: Berkshire, England

The love between Anthony and Kate began with a thrilling chase on horses through a lush forest in Windsor Great Park .

The woodland area — which is part of the greater Windsor Estate and leads straight to Windsor Castle — also features golf courses, farms and the famed Ascot Racecourse.

Visitors who go to the 4,800-acre park (which is free to access) aren’t merely seeing a film set — they will be experiencing a historical, royal site that dates back thousands of years.

Grimsthorpe Castle

Location: Lincolnshire, England

A new member of the Ton, inventor Lord Hawkins (Deepak Verma) hosted an extravagant ball in season 3 in the real-life Grimsthorpe Castle at Vanbrugh Hall.

To create the grandeur of the space, a fake floor was installed in the hall to protect the original stone flooring. When the space is not used to film ballroom scenes, the Grimsthorpe castle, with parts that date back to the 12th century, is open to guests to explore.

Step inside to see the castle’s collection of tapestries, ceramics and paintings made for British royalty or venture outside to admire the nearby gardens and park.

Wrotham Park

Perhaps no filming location shines brighter in season 2 than Wrotham Park , also known as Aubrey Hall, the Bridgertons’ country home, where Anthony and Kate’s romance grows deeper, thanks to an intense game of pall-mall played on the grounds.

The mansion, constructed in 1754, sits upon a 2,500-acre estate and is now owned by Robert Byng, a relative of the famous Admiral John Byng. Unfortunately, the Palladian home is not open to the general public.

Blenheim Palace

While glimpses of Blenheim Palace , particularly the Great Court and Water Terraces, are most prominently highlighted in the spinoff series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story , the 18th-century country house also appears as Queen Charlotte’s residence in season 3 of Bridgerton .

The palace was designed by English architects John Vanbrugh and Nicholas Hawksmoor and was built to honor John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site open to visitors to explore the palace’s state rooms, Churchill exhibition, Sir Winston Churchill’s birth room, garden area and more.

Halton House

Location: Buckinghamshire, England

What do the wedding reception of Daphne and Simon in season 1 and the makeshift dance scene involving Lady Danbury, Lady Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell), the Sharma sisters and Bridgerton children from season 2 have in common?

Both were filmed in Halton House , as were a few more miscellaneous moments capturing the Sharmas’ accommodations at Aubrey Hall and interior shots of the Bridgerton household, according to Elle Decor .

The French Renaissance-inspired home was built for Alfred de Rothschild, who hosted regal guests, including King Edward VII and Lily Langtree, during the late 19th century. The house later became an important army base during World War I and is currently a base for the Royal Air Force today.

Osterley Park and House

The iconic Full Moon ball of season 3 takes place at Osterley Park and House , a Tudor mansion built in the 1570s and later owned by wealthy banker Sir Francis Child in 1713.

Over the years, the house became more grand and evolved into a gathering place full of world-class art and luxurious space for parties and entertainment.

The Bridgerton cast and crew are hardly the first to shoot at Osterley — films like An Alligator Named Daisy (1955), Vanity Fair (2004) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012), plus the Netflix series The Crown have all been shot on the premises as well.

Old Royal Naval College

Location: Greenwich, England

Lady Whistledown’s pamphlets are flying out of the hands of paperboys all around the Old Royal Naval College, a UNESCO world heritage estate designed by Sir Christopher Wren that once served as a hospital before becoming a top naval training college in Europe in the late 19th century.

After closing as a training ground in 1997, it became a full-time visitor attraction and is still a popular U.K. tourist spot.

Bridgerton fans can spot the Old Royal Naval College mostly throughout season 2, like when a paperboy scurries across the grounds to deliver the latest gossip from Lady Whistledown in the first episode.

Later in the same episode, a different part of the grounds served as the background of a conversation between Penelope and Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie) in the marketplace. The College was also spotted in episodes 7 and 8 when members of the Ton strolled through the Grand Square and surrounding areas.

Painshill Park

Location: Surrey, England

The 18th-century landscaped garden has been the site of many afternoon park scenes in Bridgerton , including moments involving Daphne and Simon)’s courtship on the Five Arch Bridge in season 1. Painshill Park was also the location where a hot air balloon almost injured Penelope in season 3.

The grounds are open to the public to soak in the picturesque scenery and learn more about the park that architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner once described as Britain’s “greatest contribution to the visual arts," according to the park's website .

Love Bridgerton ? Here are five filming locations you can visit in real life 

These stunning locales from the hit Netflix series are open to the public, dates and times permitting.

Liam Daniel/Netflix

Gather around, dear gentle readers, for we have some stupendous news to spread. 

Since the burning Bridgerton question on everyone’s mind has been “Which dazzling filming locations and stately homes from the show can I visit in real life?,” here’s a selection of five enchanting places across the U.K. where the hit Netflix series has been filmed — all of which you can actually tour.

Created by Chris Van Dusen for Shondaland and adapted from Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels, the delightful concoction of Downton Abbey and Gossip Girl is now in its third season, still following the trials, tribulations, and oh-so-fancy outings of the Bridgerton and Featherington families as they ball-hop across the colorful social seasons of early 19th century London. So let’s slip into something lavishly majestic and tour the stomping grounds of Daphne Bridgerton ( Phoebe Dynevor ); Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings ( Regé-Jean Page ); Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh); Penelope Featherington ( Nicola Coughlan ); and Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel), among other Bridgerton personalities. 

(Hopefully, we’ll hide from the eyes and ears of the ever-observant Lady Whistledown.)

Ranger’s House (London, England)

Serving as the exterior of the elegant Bridgerton family residence where Lady Bridgerton lives with her eight daughters and sons, Ranger’s House — a graceful villa built in 1723 — is one of the few London-based locations used in the series. A stately Georgian art museum located by Greenwich Park and Blackheath, Ranger’s House is the permanent home of the famous Wernher Collection , featuring art curated by 19th-century businessman Sir Julius Wernher. 

English Heritage/Getty

Open on select days (with a discount for advance bookings) and available to rent for private events like weddings, the picturesque house includes more than 700 artworks — among them jewelry, Renaissance paintings, medieval sculptures, and oil works from the Dutch Golden Age. One thing you won’t see outside the Ranger’s House, however, is the wisteria that gloriously decorates the property’s welcoming façade in the series. Production reportedly added that detail to give the lovely house an even lovelier appeal (and to enhance the show’s vibrant color scheme). 

While the real house’s past is touched by numerous noble and royal residents, its Bridgerton presence is similarly exciting. Take the season 3 premiere when Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) returns home from abroad, with numerous lady suitors fawning over him while Penelope watches from afar. Can you imagine a finer backdrop to this dreamy scene than the Ranger’s House?

Hatfield House (Hertfordshire, England)

Many locations are used to portray the interiors of the Featherington residence, and the lavish, stately Hatfield House is one of them. It’s a charming locale with dazzling aesthetics that are in sync with the Featherington family’s taste for showy prints and happy shades of citrusy greens and yellows. 

If Hatfield House looks familiar to your eyes beyond Bridgerton , that’s because the location has been a perennial film and TV favorite. Its appearances range from Batman Begins (2005), The King’s Speech (2010), and The Crown (2016–2023), to The Favourite (2018), Enola Holmes (2020), and the recent Alfred Hitchcock remake Rebecca (2020), where Hatfield House was one of the six residences used to create the infamous estate, Manderley. 

Loop Images/Universal Images Group via Getty

Built in 1611 by Robert Cecil (the 1st Earl of Salisbury) in the Jacobean style of the era while “ adjoining the site of the Old Palace of Hatfield ,” the house includes many examples of the period’s craftsmanship, along with a famous Grand Staircase and a private chapel decorated with a rare stained glass window. One part of Hatfield House’s storied legacy is that it was once the accommodation of Queen Elizabeth I, and later of the Cecils’ descendants for hundreds of years. Today, the house and its surrounding gardens are open to the public for visits on select days and are occupied by the 7th Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury.

And let’s not forget, it’s also the home of Penelope Featherington as she sits and reads in the drawing room and sharpens her writing skills elsewhere around the property.

No. 1 Royal Crescent (Somerset, England)

“No. 1 Royal Crescent is a magnificently restored town-house museum where you can explore fashionable life in Georgian Bath of the 18th Century,” according to its website . If the place looks familiar, that’s because its sophisticated architecture appeared in the Keira Knightley film The Duchess (2008) before standing as the exterior of the Featherington clan’s family manor. You’ll quickly recognize the estate’s front door and Penelope’s window, giving her a wistful view of the Bridgerton house and, thus, much gossip to ponder.

Matt Cardy/Getty 

Built in the 18th century, the estate is decorated in the style of its heyday between 1776 and 1796. A visit ( on the select days when the property is open ) promises to be like traveling back in time as you browse the museum’s antiques, historical furniture, and works of art to get an immersive taste of life centuries ago. With chambers like “The Gentleman’s Retreat,” “Cabinet of Curiosities,” “The Withdrawing Room,” and “The Servants’ Hall,” No. 1 Royal Crescent — now well into its sixth decade as a public museum — is the whole package for both Bridgerton fans and everyone else curious about the upstairs vs. downstairs experience of the time.

Halton House (Buckinghamshire, England)

If you are still gushing over the Featherington Ball from the season 2 finale — or Daphne and the Duke of Hastings’ storybook wedding reception in season 1 — then you must head to Buckinghamshire for a visit to the French-style Halton House, an enthralling chateau-esque country estate in the Chiltern Hills. The interior shots of Bridgerton House (especially near the grand staircase) owe much of their refined glory to this estate in Aylesbury, which also appeared in The King’s Speech , Downton Abbey , and The World Is Not Enough (1999).

English Heritage/Heritage Images/Getty 

Immortalized on the National Heritage List for England — a registry of the country’s most significant historic buildings and sites — the fabulous house was built for Alfred de Rothschild in the early 1880s, where Rothschild used it as a country residence from 1883 until his death in 1918. The current owner of the mansion is The Royal Air Force (RAF); the home and its grounds (one of the UK’s largest RAF stations) are used by the staff located at RAF Halton, so the location will be open for viewing on select days only, which you can find on the RAF Halton website .

Wilton House (Wiltshire, England)

A true chameleon that portrays several different locations throughout Bridgerton , Wilton House is proudly among the most prolific star homes in the UK. It served as the Buckingham Palace stand-in for The Crown and appeared in the likes of Emma (2020) and  Pride & Prejudice (2005). That regal legacy lives on as Queen Charlotte’s royal residence in Bridgerton , as her bedroom, parlor, presentation chamber, and gardens are all filmed at Wilton. In the show, the grand Wilton also stands as Lady Danbury’s library, the dining room of Clyvedon Castle (where the married Simon and Daphne live as the Duke and Duchess of Hastings), and the exterior of the Duke of Hastings’ house, as well as its hallways and study.

The house was built in 1543 by the 1st Earl of Pembroke in the Palladian style and has been in the hands of the Pembroke family for nearly 500 years. The current (and 18th) Earl and Countess of Pembroke say on the Wilton House website that its buildings and land were granted to the Earl’s ancestor, Sir William Herbert, in 1544 and have been connected to “the political and artistic circles of England ” since then. The house is currently open for the summer season on select days and times , ready to receive history connoisseurs and Bridgerton enthusiasts alike.

Prince Harry ‘regrets leaving royals & will hate missing Trooping the Colour – but Meghan Markle isn’t interested’

  • Morgan Johnson , News Reporter
  • Published : 3:35 ET, Jun 15 2024
  • Updated : 5:09 ET, Jun 16 2024
  • Published : Invalid Date,

PRINCE Harry is likely to feel regret while watching this year's Trooping the Colour - but Meghan may be less interested, according to a royal expert.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been snubbed from the King's official birthday for the second year in a row after a turbulent four years since their dramatic Royal Family exit.

Harry and Meghan last attended Trooping the Colour in 2019

Previous years have seen Harry and Meghan join the Firm on Buckingham Palace 's balcony - with their last appearance being in 2019 alongside the late Queen .

Despite invites for Trooping the Colour continuing to be sent since their move abroad, one was not extended to the pair at their £12m California mansion this year.

It comes after Princess Kate revealed she will make a public comeback appearance at Trooping the Colour tomorrow.

Brave  Kate , 42, tonight thanked her supporters in a heartfelt, personal message following her  cancer diagnosis .

And for former soldier Harry, who served in Afghanistan, not taking part in the ceremony will be a real blow, says Richard Fitzwilliams.

He claims that Harry missing out on the event is likely to make him feel regret about his behaviour over the years - which has included branding step mum  Queen Camilla a "villain" .

Duty & family mean everything to Kate

By ARTHUR EDWARDS, Sun Royal Photographer

THE Royals were one big happy family on the Buckingham Palace balcony as the Princess of Wales made an emotional one-off appearance.

This was a brave return to public life for Catherine, who has valiantly battled cancer for the last three months.

She did not have to be at Trooping the Colour and no one would have blamed her for staying away.

But she still chose to attend.

It is a measure of just how much her duty and family mean to her.

I have not seen the Princess of Wales in person since her last public engagement on Christmas Day, more than six months ago.

Yesterday she looked very well and, crucially, very healthy too.

While the photo released on Friday by Kensington Palace was a solemn snap, yesterday Catherine beamed with joy – her smile will undoubtedly warm the nation’s heart.

Accompanied by William, who has soldiered on alone while supporting his sick wife, and her adorable children, the whole group looked relaxed and united throughout one of the most important days of the year for the Royal Family.

It was also lovely to see Catherine exchanging words with her father-in-law King Charles.

Both of them battled hard to return to their duties and even through a long lens you can tell they have genuine warmth for each other.

The only downside was the classically British weather.

It was cold.

It was wet.

My jacket and my camera were soaked.

Next Thursday will be the longest day of the year but the driving rain made me feel like I was in the middle of January.

Yet the moment the Princess emerged to wave and smile, it made bearing the downpour worthwhile.

There were a lot of smart outfits on show – it was a military parade after all – but the Princess of Wales’ stunning white dress was a cut above everyone else’s.

Almost every camera there was fixed on her and with exceptional taste she picked out a dress that could be seen down The Mall by thousands of well-wishers.

This was a remarkable return by a remarkable woman and I'm sure it would’ve meant the world to have her family by her side.

So it’s no surprise that she didn’t stop smiling throughout.

Meanwhile, Meghan won't be phased , he claims.

The expert said: "I think when it comes to military matters Harry has always taken an interest.

"I think that he does unquestionably view the way the break has occurred with the Royal Family.

"Which, as I say in my opinion, is the fault of the Sussexes.

"We know they wanted an apology from the Royal Family for the way they were treated when they were senior working members of it.

"They certainly won't get that. But I do think there will be a certain amount of regret.

"The military has been a very important part of his life, and I would have thought it only natural that he would have had a feeling of some regret [not being at Trooping the Colour ].

"I think Meghan would be indifferent to a ceremony like Trooping the Colour quite frankly.

"I have no idea whether she would or wouldn't actually watch it, but I don't think it would mean a great deal to her.

"If it had done, she would have managed to carve a position within the Royal Family where she could have been of use ."

The last time Prince Harry jetted over to the UK was in May to mark the 10th anniversary of his Invictus Games - but he didn't see the King or his family while here.

It was understood Harry's whistle-stop trip was strictly business so he could get back for son Archie's fifth birthday and also reunite with Meg and daughter Lilibet - who hasn't met Charles yet .

You simply cannot have Trooping The Colour where the centre figures are Harry and Meghan. Because it would be ridiculous Richard Fitzwilliams

Richard added he couldn't ever see Harry's two kids on Buckingham Palace balcony or at a royal event because of the rift.

He said: "I think it's impossible to imagine Archie and Lilibet on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, or at Trooping The Colour by themselves.

"We will only see them on the balcony with Harry and Meghan and the rest of the family if the rift is solved."

However, that reunion at an event won't take place for "a number of years", Richard continued.

He added: "The appearance of the Sussexes anywhere is accompanied by a vast amount of publicity. It would overshadow the parade this weekend.

"Trooping the Colour is about the King, first and foremost. Harry and Meghan would bring some form of publicity circus with them.

What is Trooping the Colour?

TROOPING the Colour is a ceremonial event performed at Horse Guards Parade on Whitehall every year to celebrate the official birthday of the monarch.

It dates back to Charles II in the 17th century.

At the start of it, the monarch is greeted by a Royal salute and the National Anthem.

The parade then commences and concludes with a second Royal salute.

King Charles  and other members of the Royal Family later gather on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to watch a fly-past by the Royal Air Force.

The King  traditionally has two birthdays : Charles' actual birthday on November 14, as well as an official birthday marked every summer by the Trooping the Colour ceremony.

The celebration takes place in June — monarchs originally celebrated their official birthdays on the second Thursday in June, but the date was changed to the second Saturday in June in 1959.

The event is called Trooping the Colour for military personnel to recognise what their regiments' colours looked like, it was necessary for the colours trooped in front of the soldiers.

The purpose of this was so that they would be familiar with their unit in battle.

This was achieved by young officers marching in between ranks of troops formed up in lines with their colours held high.

"You simply cannot have Trooping The Colour where the centre figures are Harry and Meghan. Because it would be ridiculous. 

"Every single time the Sussexes appear, they attract phenomenal amounts of publicity. 

"I'm looking at a period of quite a number of years before they come to a royal event again." 

Trooping the Colour is a ceremonial event performed at Horse Guards Parade on Whitehall every year and will take place on June 15.

Princess Kate revealed yesterday she will be joining her family as they gather for the ceremony tomorrow.

Kate will ride in a carriage with Prince George, 10,  Princess Charlotte , 9, and six-year-old  Prince Louis  - meaning she is able to wave to crowds set to line The Mall.

She will also watch the parade before appearing with the King, William and other royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

King Charles will be greeted by a royal salute and the National Anthem before a parade through the capital begins.

50 famous landmarks in england for your bucket list

  • David Angel
  • England , United Kingdom

Here’s my guide to 50 famous landmarks in England. There is such a wealth of great landmarks in England with so much history, heritage and natural beauty crammed into a relatively small country.

In this guide I show you over 50 of the country’s most famous treasures., from ancient stone circles to modern skyscrapers and natural wonders to some of the most famous buildings in the world. 

I have visited all of these landmarks – in some cases countless times – and hope you can get to see many of them for yourself.

  • Famous Landmarks in England

1. Big Ben & The Houses Of Parliament, London   

Image of Big Ben clock tower and a traditional red telephone box London England

I begin with probably the most recognised landmark in England, the Elizabeth Tower of the Houses of Parliament, or Palace of Westminster. The tower is more commonly known as Big Ben, which is the name of the bell in the clock tower.

The 96-metre (315 feet) high tower recently underwent its biggest restoration since its completion in 1859. It’s now looking better than ever, and if you look closely you may spot that the figures on the clock face are now their original blue rather than black.

2. Buckingham Palace, London  

Image of Buckingham Palace a famous landmark in england

There aren’t many more famous landmarks in England than the Queen’s official London residence, Buckingham Palace.

Many visitors make a beeline for it to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony, a free peek at the pomp and pageantry that surrounds the British Royal Family.

The State Rooms of the Royal Palace are also open to visitors ten weeks a year, and there are plans to open the Gardens at the rear of the Palace in the near future as well.

The area around the Palace is off limits to buses, so you’ll need to make a short but very enjoyable walk through one of the Royal Parks or along The Mall  to get there. 

3. St Paul’s Cathedral   

Image of St Pauls with London skyline. One of the most famous views in London

St Paul’s is another of the top few most famous London landmarks , the symbol of London’s rebirth after the 1666 Great Fire and also the city’s spirit of resilience as it survived the London Blitz.

Its great dome still dominates the western end of the City of London, and provides an outstanding viewpoint to survey the ever-changing cityscape. Don’t miss the interior, Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece, with its lavish golden arches and sculpture the high point of English Baroque.

4. Tower Bridge  

Image of Tower Bridge London at sunrise

Tower Bridge is undoubtedly the best-known of the Thames  bridges in London , spanning the river close to the Tower of London. Its design – a combined suspension and bascule bridge – is unique, with a central section that can be raised allowing tall vessels to pass through.

It’s also something of a Victorian Gothic fantasy, like a castle with spires and turrets on a river, straight out of a fairytale. The excellent Tower Bridge Experience takes you behind the scenes to show you how it all works and the view from the top.

5. Trafalgar Square   

Image of the National Gallery and Trafalgar Square, London

The most popular of many squares in London,  Trafalgar Square is right in the centre of London, a few metres from the plaque from which distances from the city are measured. 

It’s a traditional gathering place for concerts and protests, and is home to several of the most famous landmarks in London . These include the National Gallery, St Martin in the Fields Church, Sir Edwin Landseer’s bronze lions and Nelson’s Column surveying the whole endlessly busy scene from high above.  

6. Piccadilly Circus  

Image of Eros statue in Piccadilly Circus London

Piccadilly Circus is a busy junction between two of the most  famous streets in London,  Shaftesbury Avenue and Piccadilly.

It’s a popular gathering place, especially among tourists, beneath two well-known landmarks of London – the winged figure of Anteros (often mistakenly called Eros) on the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain and the giant plasma screens constantly playing adverts and short films. 

7. The Tower Of London   

Image of the Tower of London at night

The oldest of the famous landmarks in London , the Tower of London was built in the immediate aftermath of the Norman Conquest of 1066.

The formidable central White Tower was completed in 1078, the keep of the whole Castle complex, with outer walls added subsequently. One of the great icons of London, it’s home to the Beefeaters, or Yeomen Warders, ceremonial palace guards and tour guides.

Tower of London highlights include the simple St John’s Chapel in the White Tower and the Crown Jewels. 

8 . Westminster Abbey   

Image of the choir in Westminster Abbey London

Westminster Abbey is the nearest thing there is to a national church of England.

It’s the venue of royal coronations, some royal weddings and state funerals, and id the burial place of many English monarchs and great figures from British life. 

This Gothic masterpiece had its finishing touches, including the west front towers, added in the 18 th  century. It is crammed with British history and  visiting Westminster Abbey  – especially if you happen to be visiting on a relatively quiet winter weekday – is one of the most rewarding things to do in London.  

9. Windsor Castle

Image of Windsor Castle and the Great Park England UK

Windsor Castle, just to the west of Greater London, is the largest Castle in the United Kingdom, and the Queen’s regular retreat from London.

 It started out as a defensive castle built by William the Conqueror in the years after his successful 1066 invasion of England. Over the centuries it became a popular palatial residence for monarchs including Henry VIII.

Most of the medieval Castle was remodelled in the 19 th  century, including the dominant 12th century Round Tower, the highest point in the Castle. St George’s Chapel, in the Lower Ward, is a supreme example of the late Gothic English Perpendicular style (see also King’s College Chapel, Cambridge). 

10. Stonehenge

Image of the Stonehenge stone sircle at sunset

Stonehenge is one of the most iconic landmarks in England, and possibly the most famous prehistoric stone circle in the world.

It’s estimated to be around 5,000 years old, and built with great sophistication, so that the sun rises behind the Heel Stone and into the main circle on the summer solstice, June 21 st .

Recent research strongly suggests that the site may have been partly moved from the Preseli Hills in West Wales, where a monument with exactly the same configurations has been discovered.  

11. King’s College Chapel Cambridge

Image of King's College Chapel Cambridge England

The University of Cambridge is one of the most famous places in England, and King’s College Chapel easily its best-known landmark.

The College – and Chapel – were founded by King Henry VI in the mid-15 th  century, but progress on the latter was hindered by the Wars of the Roses, during which he was deposed. He intended it to be as magnificent as a Cathedral, and his successors, including Tudor Kings Henry VII and Henry VIII certainly accomplished this.

It’s one of the most beautiful churches in England, and up there with the Lady Chapel in Westminster Abbey as one of the high points of the unique English Perpendicular style. 

12. Gold Hill Shaftesbury   

Image of Gold Hill Shaftesbury Dorset England

Gold Hill is one of the prettiest streets in England, and is well-known to Brits of a certain vintage as the setting for a 1970s TV advert for Hovis bread.

A boy pushes his bread-laden bike up the improbably steep cobbled street to the tune of Dvorak’s New World Symphony. The ad agency and director couldn’t find a suitable Yorkshire location, and went with Gold Hill, in Shaftesbury, over 200 miles to the south. It’s British viewers’ favourite TV advert of all time.

The street looks exactly the same with its thatched cottages on one side and Abbey ramparts on the other.  

13. Cheddar Gorge  

Image of Cheddar Gorge Somerset England

One of the finest natural landmarks of England, this winding limestone gorge in the western county of Somerset is the highest in England, its cliffs rising 450 feet.

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Cheddar Gorge is to climb it and soak up the views from the clifftops – you can climb both sides.

Down below, you can also visit Gough’s Cave, where the unfortunate Cheddar Man, a poor soul who perished painfully 9,000 years ago, was discovered in 1903.  A must see if you’re heading for the West Country. 

14.Royal Crescent, Bath 

Image of the Royal Crescent Bath England

The city of Bath is home to several famous English landmarks, including the Royal Crescent, perhaps the grandest street in England. Royal Crescent is a curve of thirty splendid townhouses designed and built by John Wood the Younger between 1767 and 1775, and it overlooks a vast lawn and Royal Victoria Park below.

The Museum at No 1 Royal Crescent gives you a glimpse into life in Bath during its late 18 th  century Georgian heyday. The Crescent is a very short walk from The Circus, one of the finest  squares in Europe .   

15. Wells Cathedral   

Image of Wells Cathedral Somerset England

Wells Cathedral in Somerset is one of the most famous landmarks of England and one of its greatest medieval churches. It’s surrounded by the most complete Cathedral precincts in the country, including the fortified Bishops’ Palace and the Vicar’s Close, one of the best-preserved medieval streets in Europe.

The Cathedral itself has a stunning west front, an open -air gallery of outstanding medieval statuary and inside, a striking scissor-arch supporting the central tower.

16. The Iron Bridge, Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire 

Image of the Iron Bridge at Ironbridge Gorge Shropshire England UK

The village of Ironbridge, its Gorge (through which the River Severn flows) and the nearby village of Coalbrookdale are considered one of the cradles of the 18th century Industrial Revolution in England.

Abraham Darby refined the technique of smelting iron ore with coke in a blast furnace to produce pig iron in the early 1700s, but died young, aged 39, in 1717. His work was continued by his son, Abraham Darby II and grandson Abraham Darby III, exploiting the area’s coal, limestone and iron ore. The latter was responsible for the Iron Bridge – the world’s first cast-iron bridge – which was completed in 1781.  

17. Hampton Court Palace

Image of the Baroque Palace at Hampton Court England UK

Hampton Court is one of two – the other being St James’s in central London – surviving Palaces from the portfolio of King Henry VIII. The first part you see is the Tudor wing,  given to the King by Cardinal Wolsey in 1529. Much of the Tudor original was destroyed by King William III who was intent of rivalling Louis XIV’s Palace at Versailles.

It’s certainly one of the most striking Baroque buildings in Britain, with a splendid formal garden. It’s one of the best-known landmarks in Britain , and a great family day out. 

Hampton Court Palace is one of the most famous tourist attractions to visit as a day trip from London.

18. Gloucester Cathedral 

Image of Gloucester Cathedral at sunset

Gloucester is a fairly workaday city but for its wondrous Cathedral, built over 500 years and spanning Romanesque, Gothic and Perpendicular styles.

The solid Norman nave is the oldest part of the church, and the 14 th  century Great East Window the most fascinating, with a rare close-up view of this masterpiece.

The intricate fan-vaulted cloisters date from the later Perpendicular period,  and many Hogwarts scenes from the first two Harry Potter movies were filmed there. 

19. Chester Eastgate Clock  

Image of the Eastgate Clock Chester England at night

Chi-chi Chester is home to several fine England landmarks, including the fine late Gothic St Werburgh’s Cathedral, the famous Chester Rows walkways and the circuit of Roman Walls.

We’ve gone with the ornate Eastgate Clock, another Chester icon, situated on a footbridge above a shopping street. The clock was added to the bridge in 1899, and commemorates the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897.

It looks especially beautiful at night, and is supposedly the second most photographed clock in England after Big Ben. 

20. The Shard, London 

Image of The Shard London from Tower Bridge

The Shard of Glass is the highest UK landmark , soaring 310 metres (1,020 feet) above the streets of Southwark, on the South Bank of the Thames.

It’s considerably higher than its counterparts across the river Thames in the City of London, and offers a great 72 nd  floor viewpoint over the whole of London, the Thames estuary and more on a clear day.  The viewpoint has become a very popular tourist attraction.

21. Avebury Stone Circles

Image of one of the two Avebury stone circles Wiltshire England UK

Avebury is a gorgeous English country village surrounded by two ancient (possibly 5,000 years-old) stone circles and a ceremonial avenue of stones leading towards the intriguing mound of Silbury Hill to the south.

It’s an amazing place, and along with nearby Stonehenge a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  One of the most fascinating British landmarks – try to allow yourself half a day or so to see it all. 

22. Liverpool Cathedral  

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral is the largest church in Britain and the eighth largest in the world.   It was built in Gothic Revival style by Giles Gilbert Scott, who also gave the world the K6 red telephone box, and was completed in 1978, years after the architect’s death. I

I recently returned there 30 years after my previous visit, and was blown away. It’s vast, high and spacious, yet somehow warm and intimate.

A friend of ours has a superb view of the Cathedral, on the hill above the city, from 20 miles away in North Wales – even from there it’s a mightily impressive sight. It should be one of the most famous landmarks of England, and hopefully it’ll gain greater recognition in the years ahead. 

23. Clifton Suspension Bridge Bristol 

Image of the Clifton Suspension Bridge Bristol England

This awesome suspension bridge is the finest of Bristol landmarks, a stunning work of engineering carrying the B3129 road 101 metres (331 feet) above the river Avon.

It was designed by master engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who dies five years before its 1864 opening.  It’s the best-known symbol of Bristol, and there are great views from the docks below the river and up on the Clifton side of the Bridge. 

24. Canterbury Cathedral   

image of the outside of Canterbury Cathedral in England

Canterbury Cathedral, 70 miles south-east of London, is one of the most important historical places in England, and the mother church of the worldwide Anglican Communion .

It owes its status to the mission of St Augustine, who came to Kent in 597 to attempt to convert Saxon king Ethelbert, and set up his headquarters and the first Archbishopric there.

In 1170 it was the scene of the murder of one of his successors, Thomas a Becket, which led to the Cathedral becoming one of the major European pilgrimage destinations of the Middle Ages. One of the greatest English landmarks, much of the outstanding church dates from the time of Becket, and the stained glass depicting his martyrdom are a fascinating historical record.  

25. York Minster   

Image of the twin west towers of York Minster York England Uk

York Minster was founded in the 7 th  century AD and has grown to become one of the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe.  It’s only surpassed in size by Cologne Cathedral in Germany, which was completed in the late 19 th  century.

It’s unique in that it has sections of each of the main periods of English Gothic architecture – Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular. One of the most impressive landmarks in Britain. 

26. Roman Baths, Bath

image of the famous Roman Baths in Bath, England

The fine Georgian city of Bath was founded 2,000 years ago by the Romans , who built the town of Aquae Sulis around the natural springs they found there.

The Roman Baths are a complete Roman bath-house complex, with hot and tepid water baths, a cold-water plunge pool and a heated area called a laconicum. They also contain a wealth of archaeological treasures, including the stone head of the goddess Sulis Minerva.  

One of the best time to visit the Roman Baths is late on a winter afternoon, when fire burns from torches around the edge of the Great Bath, with steam rising from the warm water. The view from above is amazing, with the splendour of Bath Abbey rising behind the ancient scene.

27. Malvern Hills

Image of the famous natural landmark in England the Malvern Hills on a beautiful sunny day with pink heather in the foreground

The Malvern Hills are a small series of steep hills on the border of the counties of Worcestershire and Herefordshire. They rise quite abruptly from the relatively flat surrounding area, and offer stunning views over the countryside and down to the Bristol Channel on a clear day. They have been an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1959.

The range of hills is only around 8 miles end to end, reaching a height of 425 metres (1,394 feet) at Worcestershire Beacon.  Although they only cover small area, they are one of the most famous landscapes in England, and have inspired artists including the composer Edward Elgar, who lived nearby.

They also have some excellent walks, and are a favourite spot for many paragliders.

28. Glastonbury Tor

The area around the Somerset town of Glastonbury is full of legends and myths,from there being a secret entrance to a fairy kingdom to Joseph of Arimathea taking the young boy Jesus in search of tin. It is also said to be the Isle of Avalon, to which legendary British King Arthur retreated after his final battle.

Whatever you believe, Glastonbury Tor, the solitary hill that rises above the low-lying Somerset Levels, has an almost mystical quality about it. The conical hill has a 14 th century church tower on its summit, making it an identifiable landmark from many miles away.

If you happen to be in the area in autumn, mists often form in the surrounding landscape, leaving the Tor and tower seemingly floating above. It’s an incredible sight indeed.

29. Coventry Cathedral

image of the outside detail on Coventry cathedral in England

Coventry Cathedral is one of the most fascinating English landmarks, and one of the greatest British buildings of the 20 th century.

The original Cathedral of Coventry was the medieval parish church, which was ‘upgraded’ to Cathedral status in the early 20 th century. However, this fine church was almost completely destroyed by a Luftwaffe bombing raid on 14 th November 1940. Rather than rebuild it, it was decided to erect a new Cathedral on a site next to it.

The architect Basil Spence designed the new Cathedral, and it has many striking features. These include the statue of St Michael Slaying the Devil by Jacob Epstein, a wonderful Baptistery window by John Piper and the font below it, hewn out of a rock from a hillside above Bethlehem.

The ruins of the old Cathedral stand unchanged, a permanent and poignant reminder and symbol of reconciliation. Coventry has long been twinned with Dresden and Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad), both of which were also devastated during the Second World War.

30. London Eye

image of london eye famous uk landmark

The London Eye – also once known as the Millennium Ferris Wheel is one of the most famous London landmarks, offering some of the best views of the city.

It’s located outside County Hall on the South Bank, just across Westminster Bridge from the Houses of Parliament, and commands extraordinary views over the surrounding area.

A ‘flight’ takes 30 minutes, taking you over 500 feet above the city. The best view is across to the Houses of Parliament, and along the riverfront towards Waterloo Bridge.  We have managed to get walk-up tickets at off-peak times during the daytime, but online tickets are considerably cheaper.  Also bear in mind that if you want to catch sunsets in London that you’ll need to book in advance.

31. Angel of the North

image of the angel of the north statue

The Angel of the North has become one of the most iconic landmarks in northern England since being put in place next to the main A1 road near Gateshead in 1998.

The vast sculpture – 20 metres high and 54 metres wide – is the work of sculptor Antony Gormley, who is also responsible for Another Place , a series of 100 cast-iron figures on the beach at Crosby, near Liverpool.

Since the Angel was installed, the surrounding trees have grown in height, partly obscuring the view from certain angles.  This was always the intention – eventually it is hoped that the figure will appear to have a woodland setting.

32. Tyne Bridge

The Tyne Bridge is one of several famous British landmarks in the north-east of England.  It spans the River Tyne, linking the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (on the north bank) and Gateshead (on the south).

The Bridge was completed in 1928, and is 389 metres in length and 59 metres (194 feet) high. It was built just before – and was the model for – the longer and wider Sydney Harbour Bridge.

33. Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury Cathedral is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in England, set in the Cathedral Close, one of the most beautiful streets in the country as well.

It’s one of the great Early English Gothic churches, and replaced the earlier cathedral at Old Sarum, an ancient settlement on the outskirts of the modern city.

Its spire is the tallest in England, at 404 feet (123 metres), and it has been home to nesting peregrine falcons since 2013. You can also take the Tower Tour, which culminates in a view up the inside of the spire.

Salisbury Cathedral is the subject of several paintings by English artist John Constable, and some of these views, from countryside around the city, have hardly changed in 200 years.

34. Hadrian’s Wall

Hadrian’s Wall – named after the Emperor – is one of the most impressive of Great Britain landmarks, and far and away the largest on our list of landmarks in England.

It was built in the 2 nd century AD to mark the northern boundary of the Roman Empire, separating the Roman province of Britannia from the unconquered territory of Caledonia. Hadrian’s wall lies wholly within England, and has never constituted the border between England and Scotland.

The Wall is 73 miles – 118 km – long,  and the best-preserved sections are on higher ground – the lower-lying sections of the wall would have served as a quarry for locals. Some of the best places to appreciate the Wall are Walltown Crags and Housesteads Roman Fort.

Along with the earthwork Antonine Wall to the north in Scotland, and some other sites in Germany, it is part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site.

35. Jurassic Coast, Dorset and Devon

Image of Durdle Door sea arch Jurassic Coast Dorset England UK

The Jurassic Coast is one of the most famous natural landmarks in England, and includes some of the finest coastal scenery in England. Some of the most best places to visit on the Jurassic Coast include the iconic Durdle Door natural rock arch, nearby Lulworth Cove and the chalk cliffs and pinnacles of Old Harry Rocks near Swanage to the east.

The coastline’s name isn’t entirely accurate, as it was formed over the entire Mesozoic era – comprising the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods – between 250 and 65 million years ago, and the sudden extinction of the dinosaurs.

Many tend to associate the Jurassic Coast with Dorset, but a significant proportion of it is also located to the west, in Devon. It is 95 miles – 153 km – long in all, from Old Harry Rocks in the east to Exmouth in the west.

36. Durham Cathedral

image of Durham Cathedral a famous landmark in England

Durham Cathedral is one of the great cathedrals of Europe, and one of the most popular landmarks in England, its three towers rising above the wooded valley of the river Wear.

It is also one of the oldest cathedrals in England, with much of the building dating from the late 11 th and early 12th centuries. This Romanesque masterpiece was built to house the relics of two saints from the North East of England – St Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede.

A defensive wall also links the Cathedral with Durham Castle, and together they constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

37. White Cliffs of Dover

Image of the White Cliffs of Dover - a natural landmark in England

Until the advent of air travel, for many visitors  the first sight of England would have been the White Cliffs of Dover, one of the best-known traditional British landmarks. They have always been a symbol of arrival, and also homecoming.

The White Cliffs of Dover held particular emotional resonance during the Second World War. The forces hurriedly evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940 saw them as a symbol of safety and refuge, and Dame Vera Lynn’s famous wartime song ‘(There’ll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover’ made them – and their significance – known to the whole country.

The chalky White Cliffs extend a total of 8 miles – 13 km – either side of the town and port of Dover, and their highest point is 350 feet (110 metres).

38. Natural History Museum, London

Image of Natural HisVory Museum London England UK

The vast Victorian Romanesque edifice of the Natural History Museum dominates South Kensington, and one of the main approaches to Central London from the west.

It is as impressive inside as outside, and the main entrance, the Hintze Hall, makes a bold statement, with the skeleton of a blue whale, the largest creature on the planet, hanging in mid -air between the cathedral-like arches.

The scope of the Natural History Museum’s collection is immense – it covers every aspect of life and the universe, from geology to dinosaurs to the evolution of humans to what lies beyond us in space. Entry to the Museum is free, and some exhibitions (such as the annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year) require a ticket.

39. Blackpool Tower

image of blackpool tower in England

Blackpool is the great bastion of British seaside traditions, and the 158-metre (518 feet) Blackpool Tower is its calling card.

The Tower overlooks the seafront and the fantastic wide beach. You can climb close to the top for a superb view over the town and the Lancashire coast in both directions.  As well as being the area’s best-known landmark, it is also home to the Tower Ballroom, much beloved among ballroom dancing aficionados, and a Circus and dungeon.

One of the best times to visit Blackpool is during the annual Illuminations, when the Tower is a focal point of the famous display of lights. 

40. Eden Project, Cornwall

The Eden Project is one of the most popular attractions in Cornwall.  It’s a combination of indoor rainforest and outdoor botanical garden, set in a former china clay pit near St Austell in the Cornish countryside.

Their most recognizable features are the two Biomes, transparent dome-like structures made from ETFE thermoplastic rather than the traditional glass. The Tropical Biome houses the world’s largest indoor rainforest, while the smaller Mediterranean Biome has a collection of ancient olive trees and some stunning flowers from Western Australia which bloom Down Under in the spring.

41. British Museum, London

buckingham palace tour dates 2023

The British Museum is one of the most famous buildings in London, housing one of the richest collections of cultural and historical artefacts anywhere in the world.

It’s an enormous Neo-Classical building, completed in 1857 by Robert Smirke, though the institution dates back over a century earlier, to 1753.  However, the Museum’s ever-expanding collection meant that the vast North Wing also had to be added to house everything.

The British Museum underwent something of a rebirth in 2000, with the opening of the Great Court, designed by Norman Foster. It’s a large open space around the central dome, with its glass roof flooding it with light even on the murkiest of days.

The Great Court is also the best place to embark on your discovery of the Museum, with easy access to all of the principal collections from there.

42. Warwick Castle

image oof the outside  Warwick Castle England

Warwick Castle was originally founded by William the Conqueror in the late 11 th century, gradually developing into one of the foremost castles in England during the Hundred Years War in the 14 th century under the Beauchamp family. England’s King Edward IV was imprisoned there during the Wars of the Roses.

After being besieged during the English Civil War in 1642, the Castle no longer had a military purpose, and was turned into a vast country mansion under the new owners, the Grevilles. 

Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown was later brought in to landscape the property, and Antonio Canaletto, the famous Venetian painter, was commissioned to paint five scenes of Warwick Castle – the most he painted anywhere in England.

It has been a full-on tourist attraction since 1978, when it was taken over by the Tussauds Group – many of their waxwork exhibits remain. Many events are held in the Castle, including Wars of the Roses re-enactments and falconry displays.

43. Norwich Cathedral

image of Norwich Cathedral in England

Norwich Cathedral is the main landmark of East Anglia and one of the most magnificent cathedrals of England.  Much of it dates from Norman times (11 th and 12 th centuries) including the arches of its unusually long nave and the tower section of the spire, the second highest in England at 315 feet.

The lofty chancel, with its original rounded arches, is also hugely impressive, and the second-largest cloister in the country hides a remarkable survival.

Very little medieval sculpture survived the destructive zeal of Henry VIII and, a century later, the Parliamentarian side in the English Civil War. However, the series of intricate carved stone bosses in the cloister vault somehow escaped the fate of so many other lost medieval treasures. 

44. Brighton Pier

Image of Brighton Pier England UK

The third pier to be built in the city, Brighton Pier – also known as Brighton Palace Pier – is the only one left in the city after the collapse of the Chain and West Piers.

Completed in 1899, it originally included a theatre, which hosted performances by the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel.  This remained in use until the 1970s.

Since then the focus has been on its amusement arcades and funfair, which is located at the seaward end of the Pier. It’s a great place to enjoy the classic British seaside experience.

45. Windermere Lake

Lake Windermere is the largest lake in England, over 11 miles (17 km) long and less than a mile (1.5 km ) wide. Also known simply as Windermere, it is a typical ribbon lake formed on the site of a glacier. It is in the south-east of the Lake District National Park, the most recent place in. England to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The only town directly on the lake is Bowness-on-Windermere, which is one of the stops for the Windermere steamer. This runs from Lakeside railway station to the south of the lake to Waterhead Bay in the north.

46. Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon

image of Shakespeares birthplace, an old house in England

Shakespeare’s Birthplace is one of three attractions in Stratford-upon-Avon dedicated to the life of the most famous writer in the English language.

 The large late-medieval house was owned by William Shakespeare’s father John, who became mayor of Stratford in 1568. William, the third of eight children, inherited the house on his father’s death in 1601, and after his own death it was passed to his elder daughter Susanna, and in turn to her daughter Elizabeth.

After serving for some years as the Swan and Maidenhead Inn, the house was acquired for the nation in 1847 after a fundraising campaign supported by Charles Dickens.

47. Lincoln Cathedral

buckingham palace tour dates 2023

Once the tallest building in the world – until the collapse of its 160-metre central spire in 1548 – Lincoln Cathedral is a stupendous Gothic masterpiece, one of the great Cathedrals of the British Isles and, indeed, Europe.

It is a formidable sight, especially with its grand west front and twin towers and the central tower behind. Most of it was built in the Early English Gothic style, with its characteristic pointed arches. This also included the unusual ‘crazy’ vaulting and the rose windows in the transepts, two of the finest in England.

While looking around the choir, you’ll almost certainly see the famous Lincoln Imp. According to legend, two were on the loose and an angel turned one to stone. He is now immortalized on one of the pillars.

48. Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace was built for the 1 st Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill, near Woodstock in Oxfordshire in the early 18 th century.  It was intended as reward for his endeavours against the French and Bavarians during the Wars of the Spanish Succession and was designed in the English Baroque style.

It is the only building in the country without royal or religious affiliation to be designated a Palace. It was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Britain’s Prime Minister during the Second World War, and is currently owned by the 12 th Duke of Marlborough.

49. Radcliffe Camera, Oxford

image of Radcliffe Camera in Oxford England

The Radcliffe Camera is a famous domed circular building in Oxford University that houses the Radcliffe Science Library.

The commission to design and build the library was won by James Gibbs after the death in 1736 of Nicholas Hawksmoor, who had been responsible for much of nearby Blenheim Palace.  

It has become one of the most iconic buildings in the University. Built in the Palladian style, it’s best seen from the Tower of the neighbouring University Church , which has some of the best views of Oxford.

50. Chatsworth House

Chatsworth is one of the finest stately homes in England, and has been owned by the same family, the Cavendishes, since 1549. It has been the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire since then, and is situated on the River Derwent, close to the edge of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire.

The original Elizabethan House was replaced by the English Baroque House we see today, and substantial parts of it were complete by the end of the 17 th century. Only a small number of rooms out of over 300 are open to the public, but these include the magnificent Painted Hall and State Rooms.

Chatsworth also boasts extensive gardens, and one of the highlights is the 1 st Duke’s Baroque Garden, which includes the Cascade water feature and Cascade House, and the Neoclassical Flora’s Temple.
