A Life Peerage relates to an honour created under the Life Peerages Act of 1958 for people to sit in the United Kingdom's House of Lords for the rest of their lifetime. Life Peerages are nominated by party leaders and rubber-stamped by the monarch. When the appointee dies the peerage ends. In addition these are singular non-hereditary honours and their children remain ordinary untitled people.

At present (March 2024) there are 666 Life Peers.
