Dorset is generally a safe destination for travel. You can photograph everywhere in confidence, including at night, but apply usual common sense when out with your camera gear. Caution should be taken around Dorset’s coast; the seas are often wild, especially around Portland and Lyme Regis, and it can be dangerously easy to be caught unawares by a rogue wave. Dorset’s coastline, specifically around West Bay, Burton Bradstock, Portland and the Lulworth area, has recently seen numerous severe cliff falls and landslips so great care should be taken both when using cliff top pathways and whilst near cliff footings; these cliff falls can, and have been deadly particularly after prolonged rain.
