you could start by saying your interested in finding out more about god and you've researched different religions , and dont mention islam straight away till you get their reaction to that . then tailor what you say next to their reaction maybe?

You don't need to tell your parents about all your hobbies and reading material.
If you want to study the religion, religious text or history connected to the religion- there are plenty of library & offline resources.

But do remember that almost all ancient religion also includes unpleasant events in their history and controversial quotes.
Most centuries old book of religious scripture content were directed at the poulation of a society very different from the Britain of 2021 and do include vicious quotes or aggressive solicitations that would not be acceptable to say in a public place today.
The same applies to the old testament, new testament, medieval era papal speeches, the hindu manu code, scientologist writings by the founder and many other religious texts.

I feel you should first explore the religion more in-depth I would suggest getting the English translation of the Quran and reading that watching some Mercifulservant on Youtube they have like playlists on different topics that are really interesting to watch and listen to. Just make sure to be careful what sites you go on as some are false or may be preaching things that may not be correct. Only after you feel like you know a lot then maybe tell them so they know your like serious and that you have actually done research on it.
Hope this helps

ahh islam is quite different. the scripture sent to the population of the older times are still very relevant to todays society. if anything the science and discipline is relevant to todays society even more!

As an ex-muslim, I recommend that you research more into Islam, as it has many darksides to it.
But out of respect to your choices, I recommend you ease your parents into it. Start asking them questions about religion in general, maybe over the course of a week, then do some research on all religions via the internet and books. Maybe you'll find a religion you identify with more, maybe you won't, idk. If you're still interested in changing religions, then go to your parent's, sit them down, and tell them of your choice.

Maybe don’t tell them until you have faith or believe slightly strongly, so that you don’t get discouraged by your parents before converting, if it gets to that stage

I don't know how you tell your parents. You may not have to after all. Why are you interested in Islam?
What is particularly attractive about it?

As an ex muslim, I can assure you that it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. However, if you feel like Islam (not to confuse this term with Muslims) is compatible with your standards then by all means go ahead, but I would suggest getting an English translation of the Quran to learn more. Either way, best of luck!

it all made sense to me , like why women cover up , why free mixing isn't allowed, why Zina is forbidden and marriages, people say that islam is oppressive to woman but it actually gave them rights and dignity. i just fell in love when i started researching about it

This sounds like you're deferring them

You should respect someone's decision. If it was another religion, the same respect must be shown.

To be honest I never understood why women cover up, why mixing isn't allowed or why Zina is regarded as a crime.

I think it's only fair you explain yourself having been directly asked?
