is that even possible?!? They let me in... they can't be too picky
Saying that... i've been politely asked to not enter France without a valid passport/ID (I crossed the border for a day and left my passport at home).... just my luck that I was caught and asked for ID.
it may well have been an idle threat
but seeing as people on this thread are barred from belgium, ilfracombe, the moon etc then anything's possible
the more i think about it the more i remember......i got barred from the 13th note cafe (veggie) in glasgow for smuggling in pepperoni to put on my pizza.

Oh come on Bruce.....tell us the full story
Nothing overly exciting I'm afraid Saffy, just 'youthful exuberence' , and its not an official ban (I have been back since!)
Basically, a few of us decided on a whim to go and see the Mission play in Dussledorf, so set off, when we got to the ferry port in Belgium we got in to a little 'discussion' about the price they were trying to charge us for the train tickets (we had phoned earlier and the price was a lot lower over the phone). Things got a little 'heated' and the police were called and eventually we got on the train, and went to Dussledorf. On the return journey when we got back to the ferry port, our 'mate' was on duty again and it sort of got heated again (Boys and Girls .. its neither big nor clever to be rude to Belgium Transport staff!).
So again the police were called and as luck would have it, it was the same ones as before so we were summarily detained until the ferry was leaving, at which time we were escorted on to the ferry and told in no uncertain terms that we were no longer welcome in the country of Belgium should we ever wish to return. We also go a similar warning via their British counterparts upon our landing to ensure we understood !!

I've never been barred from or asked to leave anywhere*. I'm a nice person
*There was an incident in a bar in a ski resort, but as I didn't understand what was being said (and I might have been a bit drunk, too), I think they were just wishing us a good evening.
im starting to feel left out!

i was also once barred from pitlochryim not sure if it was for life or just for the day.

Clearly you didnt look like a tourist
I have banned my husband from Going To Tescos with me for being abusive to the checkout staff (although they did deserve it, i can't cope with that kind of stress and tackling food shopping!) but i think that might have been his plan all along. . . . . .
at the risk of being controversial, it's perhaps because im not english
I used to have to get a taxi from my old house to the pub where I drank so when we was looking for a new house one of the things it had to be was to be within waking distance from it.
First night I waked there guess what happened
