Default Passport

I'm planning a trip back to the UK next year and wondering if it is worth the cost of applying for my British passport or just to travel on my NZ passport. My UK passport expired some 10 years ago and I never really needed it, but thinking about the immigration lines at Heathrow is keeping me awake at night! Any one know the cost of applying for a British Passport in NZ or the steps needed?
Thanks in advance.

Probably gonna be a bit more difficult for you but not too much as you can still apply online, however you may have to have an interview and it may take a few weeks longer.
As you havent had a uk passport for a prolonged period youll be classed as applying for your firt UK passport again.
£86 + £20 courier fees is the first passport fee.
Just go to the passport.service.Gov. uk site and go through the questionnaire online.

Nonsense! As long as you've got a chip in your passport then pre register and use the e-gates. Or join the queue yeah!
