You don’t need a visa to travel to London if you’re traveling on a British passport; however, you do need to apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) at least 72 hours before you travel. There is a $14 registration fee when applying for an ESTA, and once it’s approved, it is valid for multiple journeys for two years or until your passport expires, according to the airlines.
