UK's First Roundabout

Hidden in the depths of the tree lined streets of Broadway, you’ll find the first ‘gyratory traffic flow system’ built in the UK, here in Letchworth Garden City.

Dating back from circa 1909, town architects Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin introduced this now common road junction to this country as part of the master plan for the Garden City.

Located in the heart of a wealth of early Garden City homes, this landmark is a short distance from Broadway Gardens; with a view on a clear day to the Railway Station past the splendid fountain.
