Yes I've used cards with 6 digit pins in the UK
, however not a Bangkok Bank card. But regardless your 6 digit pin should work.
...Whether BK bank allows you to withdraw money in the UK is another matter!

Sometime back an ATM ate my card. Rather than try to get it back, I cancelled it and got a new card. The new card required a six digit PIN.

An ATM machine does not differentiate between 4 or 6 digits, you put in the pin and press the enter key, then info is sent. You might need to let Bangkok Bank know you are traveling so card doesn't get declined, happened to me a few years ago when visiting thailand and did not notify U S. bank

Not sure about that. I have a Kasikorn 6 digit ATM card and last year in Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City, atms from a certain bank ( can t remember the name ) would allow you to key in only 4 digits. You were presented with a screen showing 4 little squares to enter the 4 digits. I used other Vietnamese bank ATM without a problem. Have a nice day.
