USS stands for underground 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 22.06’1907 as Tottenham Court Road. I visited this station on 018. Station was designed by architect Leslie Green.
At the time of writing this blog, I visited 39 stations this year (14%). Since I started this project, I visited 85 stations (31%), and I passed 212 stations. (78%). I passed 74% of stations of Northern line so far.
Some interesting trivia about the station:
- It is one of the few tube stations that using lift rather than the escalator.
- If you are fit and you can use 136 steps staircase but as usual for London Underground, steps must be used in the emergencies only.
Is Good independent coffee place nearby?
I planned to go to the highly recommended coffee shop, but I forgot the name and address of place, so I skipped. Very professional of me, I know.
Is Good pub nearby?
I didn’t have time to explore pubs as I was at lunch break at work.
Is Good restaurant nearby?
There is an interesting street food nearby that is open around lunchtime.
I tried Peruvian food.
- + Meat tasted great.
- + Sauces are really good.
- + Rice portion good.
- + Great Service.
- – The salad is fake and too small (too British/European for me)
- – Price. £9 for the large portion is the way to expensive.
I didn’t try the Peruvian drink.
Overall. I am happy that I tried but it is unjustifiably expensive.
Is interesting places to see nearby?
Near station, you can spot a weird building. It turns out to be a deep-level shelter used during WW2.
Interesting walks nearby?
