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 28.06’1923. I visited this station on 28.07’2018. At the time of writing this blog, I visited 35 stations this year (13%). Since I started this project I visited 53 stations (19%) and I passed 102 stations. (38%).
Northwick Park is suburb area. There is one little shop on the station and that is all. There is Northwick park nearby … which is full of grass and there are a even few trees here and there.
Station itself has a tiny garden.
What is unique about this station is that on the stairs there is a few arts designed by students of the Westminster University (which campus is next to the station).
There are a few a little interesting facts.
- The interchange between Kenton and nearby Northwick Park is classified as Out-of-Station Interchange. It means if your journey includes a change at Northwick Park to at Kenton it will be charged as a single journey. For example then when you travel from Harrow-on-the-Hill to Wembley Central and touch out at Northwick Park walk to Kenton and touch in there then it will treat as a single journey.
- It is served by all stations Metropolitan line only.
- It was opened as “Northwick Park and Kenton” until it was renamed to “Northwick Park” in 1937.
