With all of the lush landscapes and costumes of Regency-era England to watch on Netflix BridgertonIt was only a matter of time before eagle-eyed fans spotted the modern runaways. Those familiar with the locations in question, shot mostly in Bath and mansions in the English countryside, were quick to point to things like modern yellow "No Parking" lines, manhole covers, and a black and white Primark poster depicting a smiling person Man.
Overall, the production team did an excellent job transporting audiences into the early 1800s, and only those who really look for flaws can find them. "We're not a historical show," said production designer Will Hughes-Jones Ö. "We're storytellers. We want to be historically correct, but if it doesn't exactly fit the plot then we reconsider." Sure, we're not sure Queen Charlotte would crown her Diamond of the Season, but we appreciate the work that goes into each scene! If you're wondering how hard it is to spot the bugs, check out the Primark poster in the GIF below.
