As this is My B&H someone will know the correct answer here but I heard on Radio 4 (where else?) that US and UK 'roundabouts' have different names and go in different directions. One is a 'carousel' (USA I think), the other is a 'galloper'. However I can never remember which one goes which way which as this Brighton example has crossed the Atlantic at least twice, is rather confusing.

Hi Geoff, in reply to your question Owen Smith tells me that you are quite right-the carousels in America do revolve opposite to our Gallopers. Also the Horses in America are carved trotting not galloping as ours.

Hi Geoff, Sorry I forgot to say the American Carousels revolve anti-clockwise and the English Gallopers clockwise. Apparently it is a very simple operation to change the direction.

I was wondering if you could tell me how many horses your gallops have and their names please as I am looking to put together an activity book for our next family day trip? Thank you.

I was just wondering if anyone had contact details for Owen Smith assuming he is still the owner - I wanted to find out pricing options for bulk buying tickets (for a wedding party). Unfortunately I'm not down in Brighton to go in person for a few weeks.

Hello, I also wanted contact details for my April wedding. It would be amazing if someone could help me track down a number or email. Please please please xxx
