Clocks change on Sunday

This Sunday, 31st October 2021, the clocks in the UK will go back 1 hour at 2am.

This means you’ll get one hour more in bed, and the mornings become lighter!

In the UK the clocks go forward 1 hour at 1am on the last Sunday in March, and back 1 hour at 2am on the last Sunday in October.

The period when the clocks are 1 hour ahead is called British Summer Time (BST). There’s more daylight in the evenings and less in the mornings (sometimes called Daylight Saving Time).

When the clocks go back, the UK is on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). (When do the clocks change?)
