Bowes Park Drawing Group

BPDG organises afternoon and day trips for local people who would like to do some drawing, whatever their level of ability. We end with a cup of tea when we share, in a supportive and non-judgmental way, what we have done. Non-drawers are welcome to join us. The trips are on a Sunday in the middle of the month, mostly afternoon visits to museums in London or, in good weather, to parks and other open spaces. We also have day trips to places like Brighton, Cambridge or Canterbury, using ‘Group-Save' rail tickets.

Next outing - Museum of London, Sunday 23 April

Our next expedition will be on Sunday 23rd April to the Museum of London, which tells the capital's story from prehistoric swamp dwellers to the 1960s in fascinating ways. From Roman carvings to medieval effigies, an 18th century pleasure garden and a street of Victorian shops to a 20th century car and platform shoes, there should be something for everyone.

The Museum provides folding stools, so you can settle wherever you would like to draw. There is also, of course, a cafe for our cup of tea.

We will meet at Bounds Green tube station at 1.00pm to take the Piccadilly line to Holborn and the Central line to St Pauls, which is a few minutes walk from the Museum. If you would prefer to meet up at the Museum at about 1.50pm, let us know so that we can look out for you in the entrance. To let us know if you plan to come, please email

Our first outing of 2017 was in February to the Victoria and Albert museum, where drawings were drawn and tea was drunk.

The last outing of 2016 was in November, to Tate Britain, which is full of inspiration, and also had an exhibition of the work of Paul Nash.


On 9 October we went to the National Maritime Museum Greenwich, full of items on the theme of History of Britain at Sea and a potrait collection second only to the National Portrait Gallery. (Also a nice cafe.)

Our August outing was to Kenwood House,  on Hampstead Heath, "a masterpiece created by the famous 18th-century Scottish architect Robert Adam”, set in beautiful grounds. The weather was good, drawing was done, and the cafe enjoyed. 

On Sunday 17th July we had a lovely day out in  Ely, Cambridgeshire - a picturesque town with lots see and draw, including this imposing cathedral, Thomas Cromwell's birthplace and a really good bookshop.
