probably the best place to buy them in London is at an auction - Bonhams, Sothebys or Christies are likely to have specialist sales.
you are then bidding against the "trade" and therefore will be paying the right money.
the term "drawings" can be anything from technical drawings through to the beautiful illustrations (often as limited edition prints) produced by, for example, John Piper. Prices will vary enormously.
if you want really beautiful drawings at economic cost, I would suggest finding someone who is visiting Russia. The standard of drawings is terrific, and they are often sold by the artist/architect directly at very reasonable money. (I have some wonderful ones that I bought from a Russian student sitting on a pavement in Poland).
