057/270: #NorthGreenwich – The Plastic Tent

After Canary WharfNorth Greenwich is always a bit of a disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, its got it’s merits and features, but it’s probably my least favourite of the Jubilee Line extension stations. It’s just a bit too plastic-y for me. In fact quite a lot of the Greenwich Peninsula has that cheap and nasty feel to it. Not that it actually is cheap mind…

Perhaps it’s the tube driver’s announcement that 11-year-old me heard when I took a ride on this line for the first time that’s stuck: “Alight here for the giant plastic tent.”
