The National Front (NF, founded in 1967) is a British nationalist political party.

The NF was founded by A. K. Chesterton as a merger between his League of Empire Loyalists and the British National Party (1960). It was soon joined by the Greater Britain Movement, whose leader John Tyndall became the Front's chairman in 1972. In 1982, Tyndall left the National Front to form the new British National Party.

During the 1980s, the NF split in two; the Flag NF retained the older ideology, while the Official NF adopted a Third Positionist stance before disbanding in 1990. In 1995, the Flag NF's leadership transformed one part of the party into the National Democrats (United Kingdom), while another part retained the National Front name.
