Weird! I’ve purchased alcohol at both pubs and grocery stores in the UK as a tourist. You must have a babyface.  🙂

That sucks!  It means that you look young though, because I’m 37 and I don’t get carded in the UK.  🙁

How long has this rule been in place? I bought alcohol in the UK with my passport when I was 18. I’m 24 now and I still look 16.

huh how strange any pasport  or drivers licence should be accepted. As long as it has a photograph and some sort of proof of being genuine (some licenses and passports have holograms or something) so I cant understand why they wouldn accept yours!

They always accepted my Canadian driver’s license and passport as ID, that’s really strange.

Well that’s a bit annoying.  But quite the compliment on your looks!

Maybe you got some clueless cashiers? How do they expect anyone who is not from the UK to buy alcohol?

I remember a few years ago a friend of mine had his wallet stolen so he tried to use his passport to get into a bar. The bouncer wouldn’t let him in saying that he was only allowed to accept a driver’s license. That is just crazy! I get that they won’t take a health card but a passport?? wtf. What if you don’t drive?
