Bridgerton fans pointed out some key historical flaws after discovering yellow lines and a Primark poster – set against the 19th century Bath backdrop.

The hit Netflix takes place in 1813 and many scenes were filmed around Bath’s iconic Royal Crescent.

However, eagle-eyed viewers have noted that the yellow park lines are still visible on the streets, despite the fact that the show takes place 140 years before it was invented.

Yellow lines did not become a feature on roads in the UK until the 1960s when they were introduced to indicate parking restrictions, reports The Mirror.

Fans exposed the show for historical inaccuracies

One fan wrote: “Two episodes on #Bridgerton and I’ve spotted a single yellow line and a telecommunications manhole cover so far.

“I didn’t know the 19th century British were such pioneers.”

Another added, “I was asked to see Bridgerton during a lockdown night that turned into a spot the gaffe game.

“1813 London society, yellow lines, no parking signs, smoking filtered cigarettes, amused.”

Other fans said they saw modern street lights, park signs and even a poster for the street giant Primark.

Some scenes were shot right outside a branch of the store and a fan claimed a poster made it into the final cut.

They wrote, “You will also see a Primark poster, a single parking restriction on the yellow line, and a parking sign on a lamp post.

Much of the show was filmed at the iconic Royal Cresent in Bath, where fans discovered some unusual details

“Downspouts at the front of buildings that wouldn’t have been there and a modern doorbell.”

Another wrote: “My sister thought I could enjoy #Bridgerton.

“In less than 4 minutes you can see modern street lights and yellow, no standing lines on The Crescent if you want to spend that much money on costumes etc, at least CGI for these …”

Another added, “If anyone is curious about where I live, just check out Bridgerton. I can highlight Primark in several settings.”

“Bridgerton was just not for me,” commented another.

“At least in part because, as a Bath resident, I can’t see a single scene without saying, ‘Oh, look, your car just passed Primark’.”
