SWINDON is well-known for its roundabouts. The most famous of them all, the Magic Roundabout, is often discussed in hushed tones by road enthusiasts on the other side of the pond. It has received global recognition after being featured in the top 12 roundabouts in the world and has appeared in countless calendars compiled by the National Roundabout Appreciation Society.
