Blue House Roundabout (also known as Blue House Corner), is a roundabout to the north of Newcastle.

It is so-named because to a corner of the roundabout is a blue police house.

In August 2016, a large protest occurred as a result of plans to construct an enlarged roundabout on the moorlands to the north, causing the highways authority to reconsider their decision.
