Granary Square on Tuesday 19 April

Our next outing is to Granary Square, just north of Kings Cross. Post code N1C 4AA.

This is a short walk from Kings Cross station, north along Kings Boulevard and across Goods Way. Immediately after the Goods Way crossing there is a bridge over the Regents Canal. Cross the bridge and meet at 11 am to the left of the bridge at the top of the steps leading down to the canal. The steps are wide with people sitting on them in good weather and enjoying being outside. Not impossible to miss but the steps are there!!

Sketch Janet did last year of people sitting on the steps watching Wimbledon on a giant screen.

Granary Square  is also accessible from the buses on York Way.

Granary Square is a lively area with restaurants, cafes, fountains and wet children who run through the fountains. The University of the Arts occupies one side of the square and Coal Drops Yard with its shops and cafes is adjacent to the square. There is still construction taking place on nearby sites. Again another sketch by Janet from last year.

In case of rain the "Canopy Market" in the north east corner of the square is covered. The Waitrose next to the Canopy Market has customer toilets, and also snack lunch choices.

There are benches but best to bring a sketching stool if you can. Plenty of choice for lunch including stalls and cafes but not the cheapest.

Pics to Sue's number for the day is 07975 864142.

And finally one more pic from the RAF Museum at Hendon from Maggie Pettigrew.
