You might think you're living in 21st century south east London... but actually you're mistaken.

What you might not realise is that you're actually living in the Regency era - looking for love and happiness in high society London.

And why?

Because Netflix-hit Bridgerton actually features some iconic south east London filming locations.

Teaser images of Bridgerton's second series revealed that Greenwich's Old Royal Naval College was set to play a starring role in the new season.

The snaps revealed various cast members including Melissa Advani and Priya Kansara as Lady and Miss Eaton and Shelley Conn as well as Lady Mary Sharma during filming.

It's not the first time that the college has appeared in a major production either, having previously featured in The Crown, Les Misérables and Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Avid Bridgerton fans will recognise the exterior of this Georgian property from the show as the outside of the Bridgerton family’s Wysteria-clad mansion.

In the show, the family is said to live on Grovesnor Square but in actuality, Ranger's House is on Greenwich Park and today, houses The Wernher Collection.

Visit England says that at the time Bridgerton is set, the Georgian villa was home to King George III’s sister, Princess Augusta.

It's now run by English Heritage and features "a world-class art collection, including medieval sculptures, ornate jewellery and fine French tapestries," according to Visit England.
