Hello,

No as the law changed on 1st January 1983 and if none of your parents were British or settled in the UK, you would not automatically become a British Citizen by virtue of being born in the UK.

If you lived in the UK for the first 10 years of your life, then you may apply for registration as a British Citizen.

Hope this helps
