Stay safe on the Coast

When walking on the Jurassic Coast, please remember to stay away from the top and bottom of the cliffs as they are prone to rock falls and landslides, especially after heavy rain.

It’s a wonderful place to visit, but it’s important to use common sense and caution – and always pay attention to warning signs and messages about how to stay safe.

Here’s some top tips from the Jurassic Coast Trust to stay safe whilst exploring.
