TORONTO — With ‘Bridgerton’ heating up television screens around the world, Contiki has unveiled a brand new ‘Limited Edition’ trip based on the hit Netflix series.
The proposed four-day mini adventure will visit over 19 areas of the period drama’s filming locations in London, Bath and the surrounding English countryside in summer 2022. The show, which is based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling novels about life in Regency-era London, was just confirmed for a second season.
“Bridgerton has been the perfect binge-worthy show to see us through the lockdown restrictions, not just for its captivating romantic storyline and sumptuous costumes but also for the gorgeous U.K. scenery many Canadians can only dream of visiting right now,” said Sheralyn Berry, president of Contiki Canada. “Contiki’s recent ‘Voice of a Generation’ survey revealed 71% of our millennial and Gen-Z audience is turning to entertainment series such as ‘Emily in Paris’ and ‘Down to Earth’ for future travel inspiration. After receiving overwhelming interest from over 4,000 clients and young travellers across social media, we have good reason to take those dreams and start working towards making it a reality in 2022.”
While in London, guests will enjoy a high tea at the five-star Rubens at the Palace as well as a visit to Greenwich, which was used as the exterior of the Bridgerton family home. They’ll also take a guided tour of central London, including Lancaster House used for Lady Bridgerton’s audience with Queen Charlotte, and have dinner and drinks at the Viaduct Tavern, London’s last remaining authentic Victorian gin palace.
In Bath, highlights include a city tour featuring Beauford Square (used in the show to recreate Mayfair) and Abbey Street (the location of Madame Delacroix’s dressmaking boutique), and a visit to Holbourne Museum of Art and the Bath Assembly Rooms, both used for scenes in Lady Danbury’s mansion and the ballroom.
Clients looking for a deeper dive into the historical past of the U.K. can opt for the 16-day ‘Great Britain & Ireland’ or the 13-day ‘Scotland & Ireland.’
