Somerset is sometimes overlooked when considering destinations to visit in England and yet it offers a wide range of opportunities for photographers. This is a county that really has it all; from historic villages like Dulverton, Dunster, and Cheddar to seaside resorts such as Weston Super-Mare, Burnham on Sea and Minehead.

Somerset is a county of contrasts with a varied, rugged coastline, coves, sandy beaches, moors and levels. There are also beautiful woodland areas located in Exmoor, the Quantock Hills, and Mendip Hills.

Somerset has something to offer all year around. Come in January / February for a chance of snow on the high ground as well as flooded Somerset Levels, May for colourful bluebells, summer months for colourful canola fields and lush woodlands.Late October / early November is the best time for rich autumn colours.

Somerset has few restrictions for photographers other than respecting fenced off fields and guidelines in National Trust properties.

Locations in the guide are relatively close to each other, so you can visit a number of different spots based in any one location.

This guide covers a mixture of popular spots as well as few hidden gems in Somerset. I have tried to include spots from different parts of the county to give a variety of photographic options, but it is by no means an exhaustive list as there are many other locations to be discovered!
