USS Dominik @ Aldgate


Aldgate station was opened on 18.11’1876. It is in the City of London. It is a terminus of Metropolitan Line. This station looks bit unloved and neglected but if TfL put some effort this station could look much better and have a great character.

It is one of the older stations on the network and these are interesting facts I found:

  • Station was built on the site of a plague pit which contains many  ~1,000 bodies.
  • Metropolitan line does not have a direct interchange with District Line but you can see District line trains that are going toward Aldgate East from Aldgate station.

I guess this place must look much better in the past as these days it is full of concrete and glass.Things worth to see are:

  • 3 churches: St. Botolph’s, and St Andrew Undershaft and St Katharine Cree
  • and is the oldest synagogue in the United Kingdom.
  • Aldgate tube station

Is Good independent coffee place nearby?

I went to Flock. The place has a great ambience. I ordered a Latte Coffee and its taste is flavoursome.

Is Good pub nearby?

TODO: do research and go to one of them

Is Good restaurant nearby?

TODO: I am planning to go to Bavarian Beerhouse ( )

Is interesting places to see or walks nearby?

No. Area is quite boring. This is a place full of concrete and glass without any interesting architecture
