Part of USS Dominik exploring all tube stations series
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 is in Zone 1 and belongs to London Borough of Lambeth which is in the central part of the London.
This Lambeth North tube station was open on 10.03’1906. I visited Lambeth North on 14.12’2019. At the time of writing this blog, I visited 9 stations this year (3%). Since I started this project, I visited 91 stations (33%), and I passed 222 stations. (81%). I passed 96% of stations of Bakerloo line so far.
This station was designed by Leslie Green that can be distinguished by red-tiled façades, tiled interiors with unique pattern and semi-circular windows. I think it was a great looking station, but currently, it looks like an abandoned and unloved station. This is a big surprise to me as this station was closed for many months for lift replacement, so it was time to do the much-needed refurbishment. Paint from walls is missing. I like tile pattern on the wall, but I hate the beige colour on the walls.
This area has a nice combination of the street with brick terrace houses and trees. However, it feels like if you turn to the wrong road, then your life may expire if you meet wrong people at the wrong time. I didn’t have a chance to explore pubs and coffee places nearby.
- Lambeth North is the deepest station same as the Elephant Castle.
- It is a least-used Underground station in Zone 1 in 2015.
- When it was open then It was the terminus for 4 months for Bakerloo line until Elephant & Castle tube station was opened.
Is any Good restaurant nearby?
I visited two restaurants, and there were OK but nothing worth to recommend.
Is any compelling places to see nearby?
On a few occasion, I was here and never had time, but I want to explore
Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Imperial War Museum and St George’s Cathedral.
