    * Spot the WATCHED WALKER Logo *
    In this video I’ve hidden TWO (2) Watched Walker logos – they could be on buildings, vehicles or anything else, so keep an eye out for them!

    🙂

  • Nice video!! As always! Please tell me if you use a gimbal with the GoPro. Do you colour grading this video or is the original footage from GoPro?

  • Baking Sweet Hope says:

    We rented a flat just 1 minute down the road at 1:35 immediately behind the Underground station so it was so fun to walk along this familiar area again. Shepherd’s Bush is a lesser known borough for those of us in America but I’m so glad we stayed there.

  • I love these videos but it cracked me up when this one started out with 0:12 someone drawing up to spit to the tune of My Way. Very New York. Cheers.

  • Hi there, I especially appreciated this video, because I would never walk these particular streets nowadays, and have not been there since all the new development took place. I'm not a great fan of these sprawling new developments, but I do want to see what they have done in these areas, without actually having to visit them.

  • A sunny day🌞☀️!
    So nice to take a walk with you, Chelsea and Kensington were lovely, but it’s all very interesting and full of life, here’s to London🍻🍻!!

  • Asia Night: Walking in Asia says:

    Hi my good friend Watched Walker, once again I am honored and thrilled to be able to witness and lay eyes on this latest upload contents of your channel, which you have filmed in London and upload for all to see with clear eyes.

  • Love your videos! These would be great as clips on instagram. Take a nice quick break and walk around London for a minute in my feed. Just an idea!

  • hmm i like your vidio can see in London, i looklike life in Londo, from Indonesia – Surabaya city, don't forget news football the World 2020-2021 future to Indonesia, save your money until now , please looking football the World in Indonesia

  • Great video as always! As I run a Facebook page dedicated to Television Centre, I wondered if you could please consider also uploading a cut that just features footage Television Centre. I would then share it on my page and promote your pages. Many thanks, Paul, Remembering BBC Television Centre

  • Hello There 🙂 WW

    Shepherd’s Bush Station What a wide, beautiful place. The day is beautiful.

    And Paul going on his way. (🎶 my way 🎶)

    "Want to know which street I'm walking on? Or the name of a famous building I'm looking at?" Your channel text is so cute, but this time it has no caption 😒 (angry face) 😀

    1:12 – I keep thinking, you Londoner or living in London so long, how does it feel to see tourists looking at the map in the middle of the street and you knowing exactly where you are going? 🙂 😀
    with the comfortable feeling of: I'm at home. 😀

    I'm here hoping, Paul will enter McDonald's and place an order, just so we can hear his voice 😀…… NO this time.

    10:35 – Television Centre, were they British TV studios? I read the wall and says that there are apartments available, turned into a residential building?

    Wood Lane another large place, what beautiful places and buildings! What part of London is this?

    Do the British think London is as incredible as tourists think? Or are you already used to London and you just think the city is big and beautiful?

    14:10 – The entire area of ​​the Televevision Centre is spectacular, the inner courtyard is fabulous, I loved it.

    18:00 – WW and his shadow. 😀 You know, sometimes I need two days to watch the entire video, and today it has subtitles 😀 you tricked me, you edited the video and added subtitles today.😆 😉

    23:12 – "To be or not to be …". Royal College of Art; I loved the information: the most influential posgraduate in Arts in the world. – That's when you studied photography and cinema, right? Tell the truth.
    😉 😀

    24:27 – Brown, brown … 😀

    28:00 – Wow !!! Another movie scene, now in this scene, two dementors will enter through the tunnel, that person coming is Madame Arabella Figg (I found out her name), she will help you, so prepare your wand ……. Aaa, nothing happened, it wasn't her, it was the cleaning guy, good. 😀

    Another very pleasant walk that reveals parts of London that we don't know.

    Thank you for the walk Paul. 😉 🙂
    See you 🙂

  • Stone the crows! ( as we used to say ) that Shepherd Bush tube station has changed beyond recognition, used to be a pokey little place and just look at it now!

  • Take a Bow my man, that's the best video presentation of #London I've seen in years, please do keep up the good walking video's.
