British passport holders can visit 173 countries without any visa, as revealed in the results of the annual 2013 Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index study. The study found the other European Union countries in the top ten are Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands. Citizens of all these countries can travel to more than 170 other nations without visa. Thus, the results indicate that membership of the European Union is a key determinant of ease of movement across borders.
