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 01.10’1916. I visited this station on 28.07’2018. At the time of writing this blog, I visited 42 stations this year (15%). Since I started this project I visited 58 stations (21%) and I passed 163 stations. (60%).
This is a residential area. I call this place a Brazil town as this place is full of Brazilian people. I always imagine Brazil as a place where people dancing, play football and practice Capoeira. Sadly I haven’t seen any of this on the streets. When I walked there a few years ago in the evening this area looks … how to describe it nicely … a great place for being robbed or enjoy some street fighting something that Brazilian slums are famous for too. This time when I was there during the daytime it looks not that slums-y and I think I should come back to explore more of this place.
- In December 2006, the station was hit by a tornado in 2016. More info can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_London_tornado
Is any Good pub nearby?
I saw one pub nearby but I have an odd habit not to drink beer before noon on family day outs.
Is any Good restaurant nearby?
There are many Brazilian restaurants but we went to an Iranian restaurant called Behesht Restaurant.
It looks stunning. Interior design is fantastic,
Food was cheap and reasonably priced. Kebabs dishes taste so-so but non-kebab dish tastes quite good. Drinks selection is very limited as they don’t serve alcohol. coffee wasn’t as good as I expected.
Overall. The restaurant is worth a visit if you want to see a great looking restaurant with reasonably priced food.
Is any compelling places to see nearby?
The only place worth visit is Kensal Green Cemetery if you like church or cemetery architecture because Kensal Green Cemetery is one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ cemeteries in London.
