Bridgerton

Bridgerton viewers have taken to Twitter to point out some historical blunders in season one.

They pulled the show up on a number of mistakes; from a Primark poster to a yellow line on the road.

Did you notice these mistakes?

The series is set in the early 1800s in England.

During a scene filmed around The Royal Crescent in Bath, fans noticed yellow parking lines visible on the road.

Markings like these weren't introduced until years later.

Reactions

One Twitter user said, 'Oh dear, modern yellow no parking lines on the street in the tv drama 'Bridgerton'.'

'I've worked on a few films/tv shows as historical consultant and art department, I remember our lot painting over modern white lines on a street or covering the whole street with earth'

Other viewers claimed they also spotted a Primark poster.

One Twitter user said, 'You will also spot a Primark poster, a single yellow line parking restriction and a parking sign on a lamppost.'

'Down pipes on the front of buildings which would not have been there and a modern day doorbell.'

Others however, aren't fazed

Others however, aren't fazed by these blunders.

One Twitter user hilariously wrote, 'Something wrong with people if they are focusing on the yellow lines on the roads, hidden primark signs and pipe work going down the buildings.'

'Instead of focusing on the pure beauty of The Duke'

Season one of Bridgerton is streaming on Netflix now.

It was also announced earlier this month that the show has been renewed for a second season.
