Looking for a romantic British period drama to stream tonight?
If you need guidance on the best British period dramas to fall in love with tonight, you've come to the right place.
In the late 1990s, I received my first 8-pack of the BBC's British period drama DVDs, marketed precocious teenagers in the United States, started my love affair with all things British. Now you'll find me sipping Fortnum & Mason's tea and watching Midsomer Murders, and this is where it all began. From Jane Austen adaptations to historical romance based on a true story, to anything by Julian Fellowes, my love for period romances has not faded.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, I've decided to give the British period drama fans what they want! I've rewatched some of the best period dramas, double checked how to stream them (yes, I still have the aforementioned DVDs, I'm ashamed to admit), and compiled a list just for you! So let's dig in - pour yourself a cup of tea, and get ready for some heaving bodices, charged country line dances, and more intense stares than you'd ever imagined could be fit into one period piece.
