If you’ve ever driven with the aid of a Sat Nav, you’ll know the familiar, mundane tone of ‘take the second exit at the roundabout’.
And chances are, you won't give that roundabout a second glance.
But maybe you should have, because you might have missed out on seeing an art installation, a sculpture or something else completely crazy.
There’s even an annual calendar dedicated to the magic of roundabouts, with the pick of the world's gyratories chosen by the UK Roundabout Appreciation Society (UKRAS).
Here are some of the more unusual roundabouts featured – how many have you seen?
