The clocks change this weekend as British Summer Time begins

British Summer Time resumes at the end of this month. 

When do the clocks change?

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

The clocks go forward on 26 March 2023 at 1 am.
