The Whipps Cross Roundabout was a large roundabout at Whipps Cross in East London.

The name 'Whipps Cross' originally referred to the junction of Lea Bridge Road and Wood Street, which was located slightly to the south west of the roundabout. It lent its name to the area which developed around it.

The roundabout was built in the 1920s and removed in 2019, being replaced with a large signalised T Junction to the north east of the location of the roudabout.
