List of primary destinations on the United Kingdom road network

Primary destinations are locations that appear on route confirmation signs in the United Kingdom. They are prescribed in Appendix C of "Local Transport Note 1/94: The Design and Use of Directional Informatory Signs" (LTN 1/94), published by the Department for Transport; except those in Northern Ireland. Most are important settlements or conurbations, but some are bridges and tunnels, or even villages that are important junctions, e.g. Scotch Corner or Crianlarich.

[Some maps show primary destinations in a different colour or font size to other places. However, certain maps also include destinations that are not listed in LTN 1/94 without reference to any official designation as such.]
