So welcome to the only website in the world dedicated to the humble brown tourist sign and the pastime known to a growing number of adventurers as brown-signing! This site is a work in progress and aims to inspire you to start randomly following brown signs as an alternative and spontaneous way to discover Britain.
Brown tourist signs point to diverse and brilliant attractions, from the mainstream to the downright quirky and every one is unique, important and meaningful in it’s own special way.

I’m always looking for people to help build a wealth of info, links, histories and general interestingness about British attractions, so if you’re from a special interest group or enthusiast of any description please email me to contribute 🙂
