Sheep, wool, muitton and karakul skins are the chief products of the Karoo and Britstown is one of the principal centres of these industries.
It was a staging post on the Diamond Way - the trunk road between Three Sisters and Johannesburg through Kimberley - at a junction where this road crosses the major route to Namibia.
The town was named after Hans Brits, who owned the farm on which it was laid out in 1777.
