Tourists from all over the world flocking to use UK’s ‘Magic Roundabout’

Drivers from across the globe are visiting Swindon – to ride its “Magic Roundabout”.

The tricky traffic junction, which was constructed in the Wiltshire town in 1972, features five mini-roundabouts arranged in a circle.

And people are coming from far and wide to negotiate the bizarre traffic system, nicknamed after the popular children’s TV series that ran on the BBC from 1965 to 1977, inset.

It has now received 190 reviews on Tripadvisor and 114 motorists have rated it “excellent”.

One excited motorist had written: “Best roundabout in the world – fun to sit back and watch the crashes.”

An Aussie tourist said: “I checked out how it worked on YouTube just to be sure.

“I’m guessing it’s easy for the locals anyway and love how it’s called “magic roundabout” adds a bit of a laugh to the whole quagmire – love how the Brits think!”

And one person drove to Wiltshire from roundabout-choked Milton Keynes in Bedfordshire and gushed: “I grew up and learnt to drive in Milton Keynes, so I like to think I know a little bit about roundabouts…and…this is absolutely brilliant!!!

“Yes, it can be a bit daunting the first time you approach it.

“But on the whole other motorists are pretty forgiving if you get yourself into a lane you don’t want to be in, of course, there are always the d**ks that won’t yield etc.”

The unlikely “attraction” is located near the County Ground, home of Swindon Town FC. And in 2009 the “Magic Roundabout” was voted the fourth-scariest junction in Britain.
