Bridgerton viewers spot historical mistake in opening scene involving vehicles

Bridgerton fans have spotted quite the blunder in the opening scene of the hit Netflix show.

Viewers have been adoring the historical drama, which is set in 1813, and features beautiful scenery and props from the decadent Regency period.

However, some eagle-eyed fans have pointed out a pretty mega historical blunder in the opening scene of all places.

In the premiere clip, horse-drawn carriages can be seen tootling down a road, however, on the road's edges, clear yellow markings can be seen.

The modern markings, made to stop people from parking, were clear as day in the corner of the shot.

Viewers have since taken to their personal Twitter accounts to point out the unfortunate blunder.

One joked: "I didn't realise the 19th Century Brits were such pioneers."

Another viewer tweeted: "That’s nothing. You will also spot a Primark poster, a single yellow line parking restriction and a parking sign on a lamppost."

"It was interesting to see that Bath Crescent had yellow line parking restrictions even then," mocked another.

One more tweeted: "Down pipes on the front of buildings which would not have been there and a modern day doorbell.

"Still a great one to watch though."

Yellow lines on roads didn't arrive in the UK until the 1960s when the roads went through a major overhaul.

They indicate that parking or waiting on that stretch of road is prohibited – depending on the time of day.

It comes after it was announced the show will return for a second series after streaming giant Netflix confirmed they have officially renewed the hit period drama series


The show, which is created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes, follows the well-to-do Bridgerton family as they try to manage love and power during London's Regency era.

Confirming the show has been renewed on Thursday, Netflix took to social media to post a tongue-in-cheek statement.

The online message read: "The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honour to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season."
