1964 - 1994
In 1964, Tourist signs were originally blue, with a white box, where the symbol of the attraction would be. Under the white box would be white text stating the name and/or location (in yards, or an arrow).
1994 - Present
In 1994, The then, Department of Transport, discovered that people confused these signs with other direction signs, so a new method was devised; to have these signs brown.
In 2002 they added Services Signs to be brown, as previously they were blue, which was confused with signs on motorways.
