Ah, the majic roundabout of Swindon, I remember it well! Many years ago, I had a major customer, Yorkshire Imperial Plastics, on the North Star trading estate, and I remember their MD taking me for a drive around it soon after its construction.
There was a similar one at Hemel Hempstead, also with a central roundabout and satellite mini-roundabouts at the joining roads, but where the Swindon one scored was that it also had cut-throughs across the middle.
Great fun!

Re: which car has the right of way?

Where I live in Turkey even if you are on the round about you are expected to give way to people joining from your right. Bizarre that you stop on the roundabout.
In the nearest town, however, there are signs where you join the roundabout that you have to give way, similar to the UK.
I recall when we first came to Turkey my wife blithely went to walk across the road because it was a zebra crossing, she did not realise this just meant you were a better target.
Crossing the road in town is a good workout for your neck, that girl from the Exorcist has the right idea.

The Magic Roundabout you describe is in Hemel Hempstead

In Turkey it's the one that is still moving after the crash.
