Tourism signs

You can apply to put up brown tourism signs to help visitors find your attraction but not to advertise it.


The cost of applying for brown tourism signs depends on the number of signs you want to put up.

It costs £141.45 + VAT to apply based on a maximum of three signs (not larger than 0.6sq m each) along one route. If you're asking for more signs or they're on more than one route email and we'll let you know how much it will cost to apply.

If your application is approved we'll let you know how much it will cost to make and install your signs.
