Period drama Bridgerton has taken Netflix by storm this year.
The show has been streamed over 60 million times already - doubly impressive given it was released only four weeks ago.
The show follows the wealthy Bridgerton family in the early 1800s
But did you know that some of the scenes were filmed right on our doorstep?
Yes Hampton Court Palace featured in the period drama's scenes involving Queen Charlotte.
The exterior for the scenes involving St James' Palace did not in fact use the real deal but rather Hampton Court was used instead!
A whole host of locations around London were used for the show.
Whether that was Syon House in Brentford, the various parks we have in the capital or a wedding scene that took place in a Twickenham Church!
