What is 'The Ton' in 'Bridgerton'? Here's What the Term Means!

One question that we keep seeing people ask about the new show Bridgerton is what “the ton” means.

If you’ve seen the new Netflix series, you probably have noticed that they often reference something called “the ton” and some viewers haven’t caught on to what it means yet.

“The Ton” is what people back in 1813 used to describe high-society London. The term is short for “le bon ton,” which means “good manners.”

A lot of people are questioning another aspect of the show too!
