Look snappy with Snapchat’s London landmark geofilters

Big Brother is always watching… and so are all your friends thanks to the fleeting photo-sharing app, Snapchat. You may be happy exposing yourself and all the fun you’re having with every Tom, Dick and Hairy – sorry, Harry – in your phonebook but how did they know you were where you said you were? Well, now you can satisfy all your suspicious friends and make all your travels 100 percent legit thanks to some fun stickers designed specifically for London landmarks. And as we all know, nothing says class and legitimacy like a cartoon sticker.

If you get a bit snap-happy at Tower Bridge, the London Eye or 28 other mysterious locations, you will now have the option to use location-specific filters to add a little… pizzazz to your selfie. Don’t get too excited though – you can’t just use the geofilters for funsies as they won’t become available until you’re in the general vicinity of the landmarks.  Though this is a creepy reminder that the powers-that-be are always watching, we’re looking at it more as a treasure hunt around London.
