The Brexit Party is a Eurosceptic political party in the United Kingdom (UK) made up of politicians who support Brexit. Created in 2019, it is led by Nigel Farage. The party has four Welsh Assembly Members.

The Brexit Party campaigns for the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (EU). It wants the UK to trade on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms and leave both the European Single Market and the European Union Customs Union.

Many of its members were formerly of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), with Farage having led UKIP in 2006–09 and 2010–16, as well as from the Conservative Party.
