The places you can and can't use selfie sticks in the UK

Much like the fans who take photographs on iPads at Premier League grounds, people who use selfie sticks are the worst. There, we said it.
 
But we’re not alone: it seems this device is the latest “best thing to hate” – and as more and more people use these nifty narcissist extenders, there seems to be less and less places that they can actually use them.
 
So, in case you’re one of the heathens using the infamous selfie stick, or else want to know which tourist spots will be plagued by them, you may want to visit Canibringmyselfiestick.com, telling you which attractions ban them and which attractions permit them.
 
Here we’ve picked some of the best for a quick UK guide…
