USS Dominik @ Goodge Street

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:

  1. It is one of the few tube stations that using lift rather than the escalator.
  2. 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?

No.
