The Yorkshire Grey is a roundabout on the South Circular Road, near Eltham in SE London.

It's named for a pub (now a McDonald's) which stood on the western side of the roundabout. The junction has been a roundabout for at least 70 years: previously it was a T Junction near Eltham Green Bridge, albeit with access to serve the terraces on Eltham Green.

It briefly operated as a crossroads after the construction of Westhorne Avenue, but was soon converted to a roundabout.

It is very busy due to it not only being on the South Circular Road, but also because the A210 west of here is a useful short-cut to the London bound A20. A combination of the McDonald's, a local unclassified road on the junction and some desperately poor signage can make this two lane roundabout rather tricky to use if you have never been on it before.
