Series one of the Bridgerton period drama has been a huge hit, no doubt about that. The series, set in 1813, got the whole country hooked when it first aired on Netflix in 2020.
Bridgerton’s first season, which followed Daphne Bridgerton on her quest for true love – as the eldest daughter of the Bridgerton family entering the competitive marriage market for the first time – had everyone haunted and made the show one of Netflix’s biggest hits.
However, as some keen fans have noted, some historical inaccuracies have been omitted in some scenes – spoiling the immersive experience a bit, but mostly just making it feel quite enjoyable. .
With the second season of Bridgerton streaming on Netflix, here are the modern mistakes fans made during the show’s first series.
Mistakes Discovered on Bridgerton Season One

Here are all the mistakes eagle-eyed fans discovered in Bridgerton’s first season:
Yellow lines on the road
In the first episode of Bridgerton, some fans spotted yellow paint on the road.
There would be nothing wrong with this in a modern program. However, Bridgerton is set in the 1800s and these yellow lines didn’t reach the UK until the 1950s.
In another episode, a person spotted a parking sign on a light pole.
Given that the only mode of transportation in that period was horse-drawn carriages, parking signs are a bit out of place.
Spotting the two mistakes at once, one fan shared: “The pipes in the front of the buildings aren’t there and a modern-day doorbell. Still a great thing to see.”
Someone else spotted a blinking Primark poster and you’d miss it in the background of one of those scenes.
This is one that many fans have picked up despite it being in the scene for almost a second – a Primark from the 1800s is sure to attract attention.
Another modern cameo that caught the eye was from a manhole cover at the feet of Penelope Featherington and Eloise Bridgerton, discovered while the pair were strolling through town.
A two-fold inaccuracy includes the curtain on the windows of Lady Featherington on her estate, again appearing at the house of Sienna, the mistress of Anthony Bridgerton.
Electric street lights
Another mistake spotted by fans was the electric street light, which is an incredible glimpse of the show’s 65 years into the future.
As one fan put it: “Two episodes in #Bridgerton and so far I’ve spotted a yellow line and a telecommunications manhole cover. I didn’t realize that 19th century Britons were the ones such a pioneer…”
It can be hard to spot these errors once you’ve spotted them, but none of them really make the show any less enjoyable for anyone.
