Recruitment by stealth?

Gallery signs ‘hijack’ tourists

If you’re a tourist, you might think these signs are directions to the ancient ruins you’ve probably travelled half way across the world to see.

Click the thumbnail on the right to zoom in and you’ll see that it says very clearly:

“If you continue 500 yards along this road, to the right you will discover Camelot Castle”

Note the deliberate absence of the word ‘hotel’?

This sign gives the impression that the pebble-dash building at the end of the road is the castle (rather than Scientologist-owned ‘Camelot Castle Hotel’ – which tourists might be forgiven for thinking of as something less of an attraction..)

Furthermore, whichever road you’re on, the actual castle ruins are to the left.
