USS stands for underground’s secret search, and it is about exploring things around London’s underground station. Read more about it in my introduction: https://dominiksymonowicz.com/2017/07/07/uss-dominik-underground-secrets-search-introduction/
This station was open on 24.12’1868. I visited this station on 01.06’2018.
At the time of writing this blog, I visited 32 stations this year (11%). Since I started this project I visited 50 stations (18%) and I passed 103 stations. (38%).
St James’s Park station got the name after the park that is nearby. Park was created as deer park by Henry VIII in 1532. Charles II open park to the public. Over time some noble people and societies gave some animals like pelicans and built a little cottage for birdkeeper, and it is still in use.
I found a 2 well-known Trivia.
- London Underground HQ is above the station.
- Correct station name is … St. James’s Park or isn’t? Well… station was named St. James Park in the past and some plates still shows St. James’ Park.
Is Good independent coffee place nearby?
Inside 55 Broadway building, there is a shopping passageway where I went to Caffe Grana. The place looks nice. Staff was OK’ish. Coffee tasted good. However sandwich was too expensive.
Is Good pub nearby?
I didn’t try any yet, but there are a few ‘old’ looking pubs.

I tried Rendezvous. Food is quite nice and decent priced for ‘City standards’ but the staff is below average as the buying process is a bit confusing.
