Tourist signs

Tourist signs ('brown signs') are the responsibility of the Highways Agency on trunk roads and the local highway authority on other roads.

Tourist attractions and facilities (for example, hotels, attractions and venues) can apply for direction signs to their location.

If they meet the criteria (which may vary by area) then they pay for the costs of erecting the signs.

If you would like further information please contact the City and neighbourhood team.
