If you've ever fancied a starring role in your own Regency period drama -book a stay at Somerleyton Meadows.
This stunning, wisteria clad, late Georgian / early Regency house in the heart of the Norfolk Broads is the ideal place to live out your period fantasies.
With the Bridgerton style Wisteria due to bloom at Somerleyton Meadows around the same time as the premiere of Bridgerton Season 2 on Netflix (25th March 2022) we thought it would be a good time to fill you in on what we know so far...
Name a more interesting hook for a TV series than "a very feminist, very steamy take on the strict social morals of early 19th century London, all narrated by an unseen gossip hound voiced by Julie Andrews"—I dare you. That's Bridgerton, Shonda Rhimes' first project under her massive Netflix deal, season one of which dropped Dec. 25, 2020 and basically combined all the best parts of Pride & Prejudice and Gossip Girl. It quickly became Netflix's biggest hit ever, with 82 million households watching the show in its first month.
With its Wisteria clad buildings, longing glances, illicit affairs, empire-waist dresses, and queenly proclamations the first season of Bridgerton should have been more than enough to satisfy any lover of period dramas. Fortunately for us all, a second season of the Shondaland masterpiece is coming in March of 2022, with seasons three and four already confirmed and being planned out by the geniuses over at Shondaland—in addition to a Queen Charlotte limited prequel series.
