Signposting in Windsor is in desperate need of replacement, says town centre manager Paul Roach.
The cast iron signs are almost 30-years-old and are regarded as old-fashioned because of the limits to the information they provide.
Mr Roach told a meeting of the Royal Borough's Visitor Management Forum yesterday that he was investigating ways of getting new signs that would be flexible that are able to be changed to take account of specific forthcoming events and changing attractions in the town.
King Edward Court shopping centre manager Martin Miranda agreed new signs were necessary.
He said: "At the moment people are just wondering aimlessly around when they reach Windsor until they reach the Tourist Information office and can get the information they need."
The idea comes after the Windsor Express reported earlier this month how footfall was down in Windsor and the number of empty retail units were up.
